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.

My least favorite Bell’s offering, but decent none the less..

quite tasty. nice hint of hops without that overpowering bitter pucker that some beers boast (and many of y’all love, i’m sure) great color and good balance of carbonation. it seems to me that many red/amber beers are either too flat or too bubbly for some reason. not this one, though.

A decent amber ale. Still does not compare to their stout or to Capitals amber ale

dark golden colour with a thin head. The nose is quite strong and the alcohol is quite present. Malty and kind of wheaty with an alcohol aftertaste. Not bad overall

Typical amber ale---well, typically good. Nothing really bad about it, but nothing stands out as better than the rest out there. Good balance of malt and hops, no bitterness, smooth finish, cloudy appearance makes it somewhat different....

Murky orange with big floaties (and I poured pretty carefully) with a small white head. Some nutty maltiness, but mostly bitter citrus hop flavors. I wouldn't have identified this as an amber.

Deimos (81) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Light amber color with a lot of haze. Medium head and light fruity aroma. The palate is light and flavor light also. Finish weaker than I expected without the hops bite. My first Bells produdt and I'm underwhelmed.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Orange-amber, lightly sedimented, with a large head. Lightly bready aroma. Drinks with a sweet edge, a light caramel-candy underbelly, and a sticky consistency. Numbers not changed much. <<Re-rated 10/31/2007>>

The aroma was pleasant. I would barely call the appearance red. It had very little carbonation.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy pale amber. I was shocked at the amount of yeast/sediment, which I did not expect in an amber ale. Nice off white head. Aromas were all citrus, mainly lemon. The taste was overwhelmingly lemony, more like an iced tea than an amber ale. Extremely hoppy. I was somewhat disappointed. This is more like an IPA, which would have been fine if that was what I was in the mood for/expecting.
