12oz bottle: too bad amber ale just isn’t my thing it seems, but this is quite a good one. well balanced with residual sweetness done well. I certainly like how all of Bells brews are bottle conditioned.. everyone should catch on to that-REAL ALE! ;) csuders (30) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2006
had it on tap at a sweet jazz club in chi-town. This beer has a nice color, a good aroma and a wonderful flavor. Very well balanced. Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2006
Hazy amber ale with a very thin white head. Small floaties. Aroma is sweet and fruity but not very hoppy. In mouth, a nice sweet nutty malt with woody notes, and light raisins. A lingering malt remains, with powdery and light oily mouthfeel. Medium bodied. From piscator, Nov. 2005. Merci Kris. ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Orange colored pour, very cloudly, looks almost like a wheat beer. Smell is fruity, citrusy, and malty. Taste is similar, with the sweet fruitiness coming out a little bit more. An interesting amber ale, not very hoppy, probably one of the best I have had in style. Good effort here from Bells. dolemike1 (1289) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Orangish/amber, nice white head, rich citrus aroma, flavor starts off pleasantly malty, caramel, roasted notes, then with a potent citrus finish. Nicely balanced and very enjoyable.

From 12oz Bottle. Pale, golden hazy pour with a tinge of amber and a white soapy head. Some vegetable aromas give it a smell of sweet corn and grassy hops, but are balanced out by some brown sugary apricot notes as well. Pleasantly malty without being overdone, and contains a nice citrusy orange hops kiss. Final smack of floral lavendar petals and fruity apple blossoms. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006

Bottle obtained in a trade with <a
href http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.a target=blank>piscator34</a>, thanks Kris. Rich copper in colour, thin white head circle around the glass, some lace, some visible carbonation. The aroma is grainy, lots of dark malts and dark fruits, light citrus hops and some caramel sweetness. The flavour is malty (caramel, bready), some sweetness, nice hop bite. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a moderate amount of hops, lingering. Nice stuff.
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. HogTownHarry (7071) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Deep hazy amber with a solid beige foamy-rocky lasting head. Pleasant orange juice malty aroma, mild resiny hops, fresh grain and wildflowers. Taste is sweet juicy malt, maybe a bit more orange flavouring than I’d like, and the hops seem positively perfumy - I’d like something a little ballsier with the hops. Creamy, lightly carbonated almost sugary mouthfeel - I mean this isn’t bad, but it doesn’t scream "Bells" to me. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Pours a hazy golden amber with small floaties. Medium off white bubbly/foamy head that left some lacing and sustained. Aroma of caramel malt, candy orange, Munich malts, a general sweetness and fruity. Flavor of sweet malts, light hop bitterness, some fruit and grains. Bells has done much better than this.
