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.

Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that reduced to a thick film with a large collar and had excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light toasted grain malt, light floral hops and a mildly sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel, honey and citrus (orange). The taste was quite malty with a nice caramel sweetness from the onset with the finish being lightly hoppy with a slight bitter citrus peel presence and just a touch of honey at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a good light bitter sweet taste left to linger for just a while longer. Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a watery yet still slightly creamy texture and a nice mild carbonation. Overall a smooth easy to drink brew with a nice light sweetness, that is offset by the mild hoppy bitterness...

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.

"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.

Ahh i still remember fighting with the wedding planner that this was a light beer. Aroma has hints of citrus but mostly malty. Nothing amazing but solid for the style. For the style looks great... Mostly because itís not Amber colored. More like a pumpkin Taste is malty yeasty. Slightest hint of hops. Subtle citrus notes. Plate is medium medium minus body. Finish is medium... Malty. Carbonation is medium medium plus. Not aggressive. The best Amber Iíve had for sure. This isnít anything special but for the style a great beer. Perfect for any occasion really.
