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.

Poors a nice head from the start with a beautiful golden-amber color. I found this beer very refreshing, not overly hoppy-slight hops in the aftertaste (and I love hoppy beers, but not in this style), and a malty taste that is sweet at the initial taste (in the aftertaste only the maltiness remains). I love Bells beers and this is another great one in its arsenal.

this beer was a suprise to me. with a light coppor flavor and a medium head leaving nice rings on the glass. it has a smooth taste, sweet at first with a light hoppy finish that is barely noticeable at first. it also has a dry finish on your lips. suprising to my self i enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Saw Bell’s Amber listed as a 94 in DRAFT magazine, so picked it up at the local beer store. Color is a light orange-red with a thick white head. The aroma is just the right mix of malt and caramel with a hint of hops. The flavor is full-bodied, with a strong sweet aftertaste and mouthfeel. This is an EXCELLENT session beer, and easily the best American amber I have had.

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.

Beautiful color. Better than your average amber. Kind of chestnutty. Round and pleasant.

Appearance: Slightly hazy medium brown body, coarse tan head. Smell: Sweet malt with some citrusy hop aroma and a bit of caramel. Taste: Starts out sweet, toasted malt; some earthy and yeasty notes in the background along with just a hint of diacetyl; nice medium hop bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Excellent example of the style. Full of flavour and well-balanced, easy to drink quite a few.

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.
