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.

Appearance is a clear amber/light brown with a slightly off white foam cap. Aroma is toasted, roasty caramel malt with no noticeable hops. Taste is sweet caramel malt that gives way to toasted notes and a crisp hop bite to balance it out with a slight citrus flavor. Mouthfeel is medium with normal carbonation. Finish is well balanced with a slight drying character. Overall a well made American amber

Great Amber ale. Robust taste and aroma. Mildly hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is caramel and something savory I can’t put my finger on. Medium mouthfeel and light carb. Not my favorite.

I agree with Proc. you can’t go wrong with bells. I didn’t use to like this one so I didn’t drink it for about 6 months. Then when I had it the other day it was excellent. It was more heavily hopped then i remembered, it was good

"wish list cross-off from pfoxyjohn. unfortunately, i was a little underwhelmed by this one. not expecting greatness, but hoping for a favorite or near favorite for the style. pours a murky amber with a nice looking head. flavor is mostly malt, as is the flavor, and just wasn’t complex, bright, or hoppy enough to do much for me. not bad, but i’ve had much better in the style. 1st disappointment from Kalamazoo

Draft at Milkboy. Hazy mediium-darkish orange with a just off-white head. Fairly juicy citrus amber. Orange pips, juice and peels. Tanned leather sandals. Bell peppers. Starfruit. Persimmon. Heirloom tomatoes. Paprika. Bit bizarre.

Good and solid but nothing outstanding. Is pleasantly similar to Sierra Nevada. Too carbonated for me but so are most American ales.

I am a big amber ale and ale fan. This offering is good, it's just not my favorite. I prefer Left Hand's All American Ale, but this Bells can do the job. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not the best I've had from bells. More bitter than I expected and almost flat. I dobt I got a bad beer as it was fresh from the store but just didn't taste quite right ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Deep amber orange color. Small creamy beige head. Subtle toasted malt nose. Notes of bready and grassy hops. Sweet toasted malt flavor has a touch of brown sugar and pecans. Finishes spicy with faint resiny hops. Medium bodied and nicely balanced.
