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.

This is the best amber ale I have had! The beer has a creamy head and taste, with a bit of a malty finish. Great everyday beer.

Draft. Pours an amber color. Aroma and taste are bready malts, caramel, and a light fruit flavor.

Nice fruity hops, caramel malt. Well balanced. Quite good for one of the more mainstream bells products.

Transfer from BA review on 8-5-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – As the name implies it has an amber color with a light haze. Upon serving there was a one finger off white head that faded quickly to leave only a light amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was of caramel and toasted bread. Mixed with these were some lighter notes of citrus and some nuttiness. Taste – The taste starts out as a mix of roasted malt and caramel. While sweeter in the beginning, it some dries out and bitters some as some citrus and pine hop tastes enter the flavor profile. While these never get too strong they do a nice job of balancing some of the sweet in the beginning. Toward the end of the taste some nuttiness comes to the tongue and overall a very nice roasty flavor is left to linger. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is smooth but not thick and the carbonation is on the average side. The creaminess is very nice and helps accentuate the nice more roasted flavors of the brew. Overall – A pretty tasty amber Well worth a try.

Pours very dark brown with a thin tan foam head. Fades to just some lacing on surface. Smells of roasted malt and coffee. A tart cherry aroma is present. Tart and acidic are the first thing I get from a deep drink. Cherry flavor is sutle and not as strong as one would think. There is a nice roasted maltiness that balances out nicely with the tart cherries. medium mouth feel and acidic aftertaste. A little to tart for me to drink many. I would drink another

Pour is cloudy amber orange with a nice foamy white head. Aroma ensembles fresh baked bread and citrus. Taste is slightly bitter and breads with a smooth finish that leaves a strong bitterness. As far as ambers, I have certainly had better.

I really prefer IPAs and Stouts but one of the better ales that I’ve had. Nice malt with touch of caramel flavors.

I love amber ales...Wasn’t too sure about this one but once it warmed up the carmel notes started coming through... this is a great beer
