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.

Caramel colored pour with a fairly large head. A little caramel over malts and a litle hops. Smooth, slightly sweet.

as far as amber ales are concerned this one is pretty solid. a nice hoppiness with the hint of deeper character, perhaps of fruit. slightly sweet. a decent easy drinker.

Good semi-rich mouthfeel, fruity taste, fresh and well-balanced with spicy undertones. A good run at an amber ale (not one of my favorite types).

Beautiful color and a bit of a stale bitter aroma. Full flavored ale, but not my favorite. Bitter, dry, but still ...not bad at all

Good is too small a word for this one. Very nice all around beer with better balance than most in its class. Thi is only my second Bell’s experience and I like it better than the Oberon.

Northernbrewer (151) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2001
Far better than many other ’red’ beers. Has a strong buiscuity character that is distracting and the last sample I had was a bit hazy. Still a good beer worthy of a try.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy pale amber. I was shocked at the amount of yeast/sediment, which I did not expect in an amber ale. Nice off white head. Aromas were all citrus, mainly lemon. The taste was overwhelmingly lemony, more like an iced tea than an amber ale. Extremely hoppy. I was somewhat disappointed. This is more like an IPA, which would have been fine if that was what I was in the mood for/expecting.

Copper with a small beige head, nice lacing. Smells and tastes very malty, also pretty sweet and has a light bitter finish. Good Amber overall.

illiniphil (148) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy copper. Taste on the nose is malt followed by a nice citrus follow. Tastes more like an APA then a amber ale. It's good as an APA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
