3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought from a local party store. A sour yeasty, with slight hint of hops smell. Flavor starts with an initial sour, almost bread like in character, then finishes with a malty, almost marzen flavor. Not a bad beer. Amber in color, not much head. Also, there were yeast particles floating around as well, with a layer of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Iím not much for amber ales, but this one is drinkable.

had it on tap at a sweet jazz club in chi-town. This beer has a nice color, a good aroma and a wonderful flavor. Very well balanced.

This is a great beer. It seems to have a good blend of hops to give it a very good taste, with an aroma that is excellent. I would have to say one of the best beers that i have had i would suggest it to anyone.

Tasty amber with some unique characteristics for the style. It seems all of Bellís products have just a slightly different taste that I canít quite put my finger on. Great mouthfeel and a nice hint of mildly roasty sweetness with a good dose of hops to finish.

draft. Hoppy citrus aroma. Light burnt orange appearance with no head. Almost no malt flavor with the dominance of hops. light bodied with lots of carb feel and a slight malt feel and a balance of hops from start to finish. Didnt care for this beer much.

Not bad, but kind of boring. This style isnít too wild in general, but Iím kind of pissed off I spent so much money on this six pack. Could be much worse though as it is certainly drinkable and quite good, but nothing I would buy on a regular basis and nothing that overly impressed me.

from the bottle. Your basic brown/amber ale with a little more sweetness and fruit. Good quality but not outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 Bellís 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.
