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.

Not one of Bell’s best, but a solid Amber. Looks good in a glass with a nice malty aroma to go with it. Well balanced and a little fruity.

Pours a hazy Amber color. Good sized white head that doesn’t fully last. Not smelling much of an aroma. Maybe some malts. Starts off sweet and then you pick up some slight hops in the end. Soft carbonation. Very clean and refreshing. I’m becoming a fan of Bell’s

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! ;)

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

Cloudy amber-orange color with a small head that disappeared quickly. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Nice hoppy flavor, with notes of caramel. This is much better and much more well-balanced than I remember it being a few years ago. I avoided this beer for several years, and was pleasantly surprised tonight when I decided to give it another try. A nice amber ale.

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 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.

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.
