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.

purchased a 6er of this from E-Z Way in Muskegon on my trip home, rather plain i thought, creamy malt flavor, crisp hops but that was about it... no real other defining flavors jumping out of this one

not bad..not good. typical amber though cloudier than most. Finish was very lager like and not enjoyable.

Pours a lighter amber color with a medium sized off white head and a lot of fish food floaties. Butt loads of butter in the aroma and the flavor, so much that it was kind of hard to get past. Lighter caramel as well. Medium bodied, fairly smooth. Nice to try but too much butter toffee to actually enjoy.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Amber color with white head and a little lacing. It had a bread/grain smell. There was an almost bitter fruit taste that I didn’t really care for.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color. Mostly taste of sweet malt, not much hop here. Finishes pretty smooth though.

Poured a dark orange brown color with a nice amount of offwhite head. Aroma is sweet piney and floral. Flavor is very sweet, yeasty and slightly bitter. Overall, definitely a dissapointment. On a side note, i noticed a similar yeasty taste in their brown ale which i also didnt like.

Tap @ bells. Wihtout smelling Im guessing this is going to be more dimethyksulfide. SUPRISE! its diacetal. Nose also feauters some honey. Mouth is thin with some vinenna flavours and lemon hops.

Beautiful color and a bit of a stale bitter aroma. Full flavored ale, but not my favorite. Bitter, dry, but still ...not bad at all

a standard amber ale. Not very impressive and generally forgettable. It has a nice appearance, but not enough flavor or bite for me.

bottle. Absolutely beatiful color. good body and balance. Not an outstanding flavor but I am not a fan of ambers. one of the only bell’s beers I will not revisit.
