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.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
Bottled. A murky amber beer with a medium orange head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with strong notes of caramel and lesser notes of metal, while the flavor is sweet malty again with strong notes of caramel, but lesser notes of berries. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

malrubius (2003) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 13, 2008
#300. 12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Amber with lasting head and lace and flaoters, even though I left half an inch in the bottle. Very mild aroma of hop and light alcohol. Mild caramel and fruit and nut with medium bitterness. Fairly dry. Medium body and carb. Decent enough. I’m not much of an amber fan. A little hoppy for the style.

This amber has a nice note of hops its not bells best but worthy of the name. Fruit flavor is a little weak but the fulfilling palate of hops makes up for it.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - JUL 25, 2008
Clear dark amber with a good off-white head. Aroma has a faint woody character coupled with amber malt (obviously). Flavor includes wood, nuts, and roasted malt. Good medium body; smooth with light carbonation. Overall: poundable and without flaw. Scratch that, a bit of a metallic flavor comes out as it warms, but still a fine brew.

BeerBunker (800) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Pours dark amber, with small white head. Aroma is moderately malty. Tastes malty with a good hoppy flavor. Too much carbonation in the body. Finish is better than the start.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2009
A little more robust than the average amber. Malty of course, but then leaves some yeast and fruity sweetness lingering after. Rich, good, but not my favorite style.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Rated under the Big Porch Ale 2008 Label, batch 8446, 1 year old from Party World on Alpine, Grand Rapids, MI. Cloudy, dark amber with small white head. Aroma is malt forward with some citrus hops and biscuit malt. Flavor is sweeter biscuit, some caramel, some earthiness and some citrus hops, with a drying bitterness. Medium body with active carbonation and some creaminess. Not bad, will have to rerate fresh Bells Amber.
