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.

Great for style. Nice creamy texture on this with extremely good balance between hops and malt. The blurb lives up to the fruit claim as well - there are definite hints of orange here. Foamy head with good lacing. Pours orange with a little cloud. Bottle from brewpub store.

blankboy (7134) - 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.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 Rerate Recently bought a six of this and continue to find it to just be a very enjoyable drinkable flavorful ale - good one to keep around in the fridge when nothing else to rate. Original 3.7 Ft. Myers, Fl. - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Light to medium orange pour with a soft, silky pillowy white head. Clean, fresh fruity aroma with hints of nectarines and faint spruce. The most prominent flavor is caramel with some light citrus notes to balance it out. Some nuttiness permeates throughout as well. Very full bodied and flavorful. Mouthfeel is thick, creamy and sticky. Excellent amber - Bell’s is turning into one of my favorite brewers.

Thick head, light as some of my fellow friends noticed with me (Hoppygrrrl and Psych.). Very sweet aroma, some honey and caramel. Slightly alcoholic, medium light body. Light and refreshing brake from heavier brothers. Fun to drink

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a white head. Aroma is that of sweet malt. Flavor has a nice clean hop character to it, touch of honey. Overall it’s decent, but goes downhill as it warms so don’t leave this in the glass too long.

onceblind (6910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Slightly hazy amberish copper with a thin foamy white cap. Nutty Amber malts and a bit of sweet toasted English muffin. Crisp, smooth, mellow and semisweet flavor full of toasted English muffin, a hint of caramel and cereal grains, crystal and Amber malt and a wee pop of noble grassy hop flavor and bitterness. Really smooth and tasty.

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle from John’s Grocery (Iowa City, IA). Pours a very hazy dark amber hue with a significant bubbly tan head that begins to dissipate. Aromas of sweet caramel malts and sugary sweetness with a nice hoppiness. Initial taste is a mellow sweetness that flows through to a bit of a hoppy fruitiness and moves further towards a smooth semisweet finish that tastes of wonderful caramel malts. Overall, lacking in hop bitterness, the aroma led me to believe we’d have a more noticeable hop portion. However, a nice mellow amber that openly displays an impressive malt bill in taste and in aroma. Yum.

Bottle @ Maya. Copper color with a small off-white head. Toasted brown bread, apple, a bit of fruit leather on the nose. Mellow Munich vibes. Some caramel and a hint of cocoa. Light apple and a hint of citrus fruit. Light body, crisp carbonation. A very solid accompaniment for my supper.
