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.

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.

350 ml bottle from vintage cellars. Hazy copper brown with a fizzy head. Bready caramel malty aroma and taste.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Sweet malty profile, caramel, sweet with some overripe fruit, peach and accents of citrus and earth. Decent brew.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2004
An acceptable drink. Nice reddish brown color with a passing white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a touch of bitterness. Much the same with the taste. Disappointing in that I know this brewery can and does much, much better.

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

Bottle. Amber in color (what, did you think it would be blue?) with a small white head. There is a sweetness from the malts but,not as many hops as I expected in the aroma or the flavor. I did get some citrus flavor as well as caramel. Not bad, just not my typical style.

jredmond (5343) - Manhattan, 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

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Bottom poured murky (nearly opaque) brownish copper color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, butterscotch, and caramel malts. Taste of nutty and caramel malts with a citrus, lightly bitter, hop finish.

beerguy101 (5286) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
This amber pours a orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of caramel. A medium bodied amber. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly citrusy and grapefruity. Nice balance. A touch sweet, but there is some hoppiness to balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

TheBeerGod (5254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle. Amber bodied with a small light brown head. Aroma is malty with caramel and soft fruit and nut notes. Light hop notes. Taste is nutty and malty with caramel and soft hops. Light fruit notes as well. Body is medium with creamy carbonation. Light dryness. Finishes with more caramel, soft malts, nuts, light spicy and earthy hops and fruit. Decent session style amber ale.
