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.

Pleasing look. Amber color with a nice head. Looks better then it tastes. Not much of a WOW factor. Seems to have an abudance of hops and malts, but nothing prominent. I wouldn’t drink more than one at a time. Maybe best for me for an after dinner drink. My wife enjoyed this more, so I’ll likely be trying this again.

sweet carmel malty brw with foamy light body. Remined me of lake louie premium larger a bit.

Very smooth poor and taste. You will not find a higher quality amber. This is my favorite brewer in this style.

Bottle from Hy-Vee poured into english pint - Pours a cloudy amber with a 1 finger off-white head; A nutty, malty, toasty aroma with a certain sweetness to the nose; Gentle grassy hops and a big malt note on the initial taste; Nutty, toasty, dry aftertaste with some faint hops; Good medium body; Carbonation was present but not intrusive; Got some sediment accidentally. A lot nuttier than other ambers I’ve tried. Not bad at all.

Having just had two draft pints of this with my dinner at Chicago’s excellent Wishbone Restaurant, I can report that it is a solid, satisfying brew, although not the equal of the other Bells I’ve tried (the Oberon, the Porter, and the Special Cream Stout). Among ambers, I rate Fischer higher.

I’ve never been as big a fan of this as other people. Seems out of kilter.

Slightly cloudy, dark orange color. Slight hoppy, fruit aroma. Very bitter finish with a touch of fruit. This is a great brewery by the way, gotta love the stout selection - amazing. Go there in November, when the stouts are brewed.

Darker golden color, slightly sweet nose, touch of hops at the finish. Has somewhat of a caramel sweetness to it.

(On tap at Bell's) With an unexpectedly light color for an "amber" ale, this brew has a sweet aroma. Hoppy, tangy flavor, but falls flat. In sum: OK, but rather disappointing.
