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.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; the color the title suggests. Smells solid; sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells with a decent mouthfeel. Solid.

lusikka (7650) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
355 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Los Angeles, CA. Pours a hazy golden amber colour with a small head. Aroma of biscuit, floral notes and white grapes. Flavour of grassy hops, some berries, herbal notes and biscuit. Medium bodied. Dry biscuit finish. Decent.

Svesse (7630) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2010
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with dried fruit, orange, caramel and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some sweetness. Lacking something extra, but well balanced and tasty.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Bottle, Batch 7064. Poured a medium orangey-amber with a short, creamy white head. There was a good deal of sediment floating around in there. Sweet, malty arouma of primarily caramel maltage, with a nice dose of floral hops. Smooth caramel and noble hops were well-balanced in the flavor, with some subtle spice at the finish. Smooth on the palate with hoppy bitterness around the edges. This was definitely a tasty and well-crafted amber.

after4ever (7272) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2007
12-oz. Thanks, Boboski! Pours a deep cloudy medium toffeed amber. Thick rocky head falls away to white moussy film after a few drinks. Rather sour bready/yeasty nose. Medium body with crisp but somehow intermittent carbonation. Lots of caramel and pale wheat bread on the mid-palate. Bready finish. This beer is definitely a celebration of all the grain agriculture that beer and breadmaking have in common.

jredmond (7142) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle split with Tony and Pat. Pours a beautiful dark, hazy amber body. Aroma is slight skunk and malts. The mouthfeel is thin with notes of malt. Seemed sort of overrated, but still solid considering the style

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 9, 2003
On tap: This has a sweet malty aroma and a touch of hops. Flavor is well balanced and moderately bitter. The fullest bodied amber I've had. Very enjoyable, even by someone who doesn't care for the style.

Ernest (7123) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, orange, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. A nice, rich, balanced, fruity example. This batch is certainly better quality than most Bells beers I’ve had recently. Six-pack worthy.

blankboy (7058) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2007
Bottle shared with tupalev -- my bottle. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Nice, pleasant aroma of hops, caramel malt and fruit. Flavour’s the same, hops, caramel malt and fruit -- simple, but tasty and easy to drink. Medium bodied. Very good, a nice version of the style.
