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.

Initial fruity hops and caramel malty taste and nose. Medium body with surprisingly active fizz. Somewhat dry finish with lingering malt sweetness.

Pours a hazy amber color. One finger tan head. Short lived, head reduces to film. Light lacing.

Aroma is bready and honey. Very malty, medium toasted malts. Some caramel, some floral hops. Nice.

Taste follows the nose. Bready, malty sweetness. A little bitter, but not much. A little butter, a little caramel. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied. Light carbonation makes it a little soft. Finishes a little bitter and semi dry.

Overall, this is great. Not much to say about it. I would buy it again, and I would recommend it.

Bells Amber Ale isn’t bad but doesn’t live up to the line. Translucent amber pour with weak head. Light if any aroma. Taste is a straight up amber ale -- no real fruit flavors detected. Amber Ale mixes well with food or is a good drink on a hot day, but nothing special.

HuskerTan (1589) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle. A- Caramel, bread dough, sweet malts, subtle grains. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Caramel, biscuits, slightly sweet, slightly bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.a O- Had a nice touch of bitterness that gave it a little distinction from most boring ambers. While I wouldn’t say I love this beer I thought it was well done.

12 oz bottle with dinner. Enjoying how easy it is to get Bells around here. It’s an afterthought, but back home it would be welcomed nicely. Much more artistic bottle than the site provides. Clear copper pour with a patchy head. Big time bready malts, and a refreshing finish. Well made amber for sure. I think I’ll have another.

Bottle. Pours copper with a sticky white head. Aromas of sweet malt and earthy hops. Flavors are toasty malt, earthy hops, bitter citrus and slight herbal tones. Clean mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Decent.
