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.

Nice copper body with a thick tan head that leaves decent lacing. The light aroma is mostly sweet with caramel and vanilla notes present. The mouthfeel is full and smooth. The taste is not nearly as sweet but more bitter than the aroma would lead you to believe. The malty sweetness is right up front but quickly gives way to grassy hop bitterness. Not a bad beer.

Great Amber ale. Robust taste and aroma. Mildly hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is caramel and something savory I canít put my finger on. Medium mouthfeel and light carb. Not my favorite.

I agree with Proc. you canít go wrong with bells. I didnít use to like this one so I didnít drink it for about 6 months. Then when I had it the other day it was excellent. It was more heavily hopped then i remembered, it was good

"wish list cross-off from pfoxyjohn. unfortunately, i was a little underwhelmed by this one. not expecting greatness, but hoping for a favorite or near favorite for the style. pours a murky amber with a nice looking head. flavor is mostly malt, as is the flavor, and just wasnít complex, bright, or hoppy enough to do much for me. not bad, but iíve had much better in the style. 1st disappointment from Kalamazoo

Draft at Milkboy. Hazy mediium-darkish orange with a just off-white head. Fairly juicy citrus amber. Orange pips, juice and peels. Tanned leather sandals. Bell peppers. Starfruit. Persimmon. Heirloom tomatoes. Paprika. Bit bizarre.

Good and solid but nothing outstanding. Is pleasantly similar to Sierra Nevada. Too carbonated for me but so are most American ales.

I am a big amber ale and ale fan. This offering is good, it's just not my favorite. I prefer Left Hand's All American Ale, but this Bells can do the job. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not the best I've had from bells. More bitter than I expected and almost flat. I dobt I got a bad beer as it was fresh from the store but just didn't taste quite right ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Deep amber orange color. Small creamy beige head. Subtle toasted malt nose. Notes of bready and grassy hops. Sweet toasted malt flavor has a touch of brown sugar and pecans. Finishes spicy with faint resiny hops. Medium bodied and nicely balanced.
