Very nice amber color. Aroma is of caramal, malt, citrus and just a tiny bit of a floral note. Tastes like the description, just a bit sweet and a little hoppy. This is probably my favorite amber.

Sweet and carmel taste with a moderate bitter edge. Unlike any American amber that I've ever had.

12 oz bottle. Dark hazy amber with a full off-white head. Sweet caramel and malt in the nose. Nicely balanced flavor with a hint of hop bitterness at the finish. A little thin but overall pretty good.

Bottle poured into pint glass. Appearance is a hazy orange-ish copper color with minimal head. Aroma is fruity, mostly orange, with malt scents as well. Taste follows the nose, a nice balance of citrus, light hops, caramel, and malt. Nice crisp feel.

purchased a 6er of this from E-Z Way in Muskegon on my trip home, rather plain i thought, creamy malt flavor, crisp hops but that was about it... no real other defining flavors jumping out of this one

Way better than George Killians. It has a more beer taste in comparison to lighter beers (but this is still a light beer.) The first taste had a high hop flavor with a sweet caramel/malt finish.

And I made fun of hippies! What a great beer! There are only a few bars that carry it locally but it is worth going to therm. Girls with dumb clothes, guys with trust funds and denim overalls, and spactular beer on draught. Sometimes people I look down on are right!

AKA Big Porch Ale, damn I thought that tasted familiar. This one is well balanced, and quite complex for the style. Well carbonated, and with a nice hoppy finish. Very good overall.

High quality amber from Bell’s. Great ruby appearance. High quality flavor. Very standard brew from Bells.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - NOV 16, 2005
The color is a deep rust red that darkens toward the top. Nose is sweet with fruit accents of apple and pear that gives way to a nice caramel finish. The medium-bodied ale has a sweet flavor that manages to be remarkably smooth and rich. A very good amber that brings depth to an often one-note style.
