COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Good beer for an amber. Pours a nice copper color. Mostly malt on the nose, but all aromas are light. Nice caramel flavor, smooth mouthfeel, but it could use some more lacing. Solid amber.

This beer has caramel flavors with a strong aftertaste. It would be great paired with a steak.

Poured a cloudy copper/orange with modest head. The taste is refreshingly light bodied making it very drinkable. Flavors of caramel and citrus with hop bitterness blending with the carbonation. Finish is somewhat dry with a residual sweetness on the sides of the tongue. A truly delicious amber.

I was thrown by the label, unknowingly purchasing it as Big Porch Ale, but it is Amber Ale nonetheless. Batch # 7872. Great summer beer for barbeque’s or enjoying the company of friends. Sweet taste and clean finish. Not my favorite from the Bell’s collection, but glad I tried it.

Aroma is cerealy goldfish cracker; Appearance is amber orange with the allusion of the milkyway with the floaters... really a pleasurable look; Taste is smooth and medium light with a thin soft finish... overall, a very drinkable beer in a bar bottle and great blue heron label... I would buy it again.

Pours with a look of a lite iced tea... well, except for the thick tan head! I noticed that this beer is nicely carbonated, and has floating sediment. First wiff of this stuff tells you that it is sweet. Extremely drinkable, especially for the style. Alchohol, though not strong, is present. I definitely would say that the Amber Ale is a spicy beer. The aftertaste is pleasant, and equals the delight of actually drinking the beer. I love it!
