poured a nice copper color with a sweet aroma. Was pretty cloudy with sediment. Flavor is sweet with a hops bite. Palate was fair, nothing special. Good but not the best amber ale

The flagship beer of a top ten brewery. It is a little above average. Great reddish, brown color. Not a good start but a good finish. Give it s a shot, and then go straight to Bellís Oberon or Bellís Hopslam!!!

Very well balanced with caramel and buttery taste. Just enough amount of hops. I will enjoy this beer everyday anytime of the day.

Not bad but nothing special about the amber. Nothing remarkable but nothing off putting.

While the beer had nice malty flavors when I first sipped it, I continually felt that it was lacking the oompf that would make this beer memorable.

Smooth as a babyís bottom. A perfect amber color with a very refreshing finish.

A nice amber yet it still has a bit of bite I would drink it regularly if it was the only bells I could get.

I went to Kalamazoo College years ago and have fond memories of this beer, which unfortunately is unavailable in New York City. I get it every time I visit Michigan, and I still think itís one of the best amber ales made anywhere. Just super-tasty.

One of my favorite beers. Lots of flavor with a good after taste and smells great.
