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.

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

Iíve 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.

Ungstrup (32202) - 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.

Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with a thin white had. Pine-nut nose. Medium body and carbonation. Lots caramel, nuts and bread in the taste. Crisp finish.

malrubius (2324) - 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. Iím 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 (956) - 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.
