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.

Go to amber ale. Does have Bells yeast unique flavor that lingers in a good way. Clearly intended to be hop mild... It is a Michigan staple. Not to be passed on... It’s exactly what’s meant to be.

Bell’s Amber Ale has a thick, off-white head, an amber appearance, lots of bigger and tinier tan yeast chunks, throughout,, and minimal lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, honey-topped, brown bread and a touch of lemon. Taste is of those elements, with some background stone fruit skin and relatively low bitterness. Mouthfeel is high medium (almost heavy) and fluffy, and Bell’s Amber Ale finishes in the dry realm. RJT

Aroma is caramel, sweet, earthy hops, basic. Appearance is amber, light tan head, slightly hazy. Taste is a mix of caramel malt and earthy hops, neither outdoing each other, very balanced. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, caramel hops aftertaste. Overall, this is great for the style.

One of the better amber beers I’ve had. It’s actually really hazy which is interesting. Smells like sweet caramel, grass and honey. Taste is sweet, malty, and slightly bitter. It’s really easy to drink and tastes much better than most amber style ales.
