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.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden amber with solid lacing. Sweet hoppy aroma. Taste has a lot of hops, with a smooth finish. Very good.

Fantastic Amber ale. Poured a huge head in my scooner and lasted till the last drop. Aroma of flowery hops pineapple and as it warms brown sugar. More on the sweet side and could use a bit more bittering hops. When it warms the flavor takes on a more dark malt taste. Overall just awesome for the style.

A good beer for a stle i am not too fond of. Pours amber (surprise) with a modest off-white head. Prominent malt presence with hints of fruit and hops. Nice balance. Definitely a fair amount of complexity.

I always think of Amber as Larryís íflagshipí brew. Itís a very good amber ale; with just a dab less malt prominence it would be one of my favorites. Also one of Bellís most consistent brews - it always tastes the same (some of his seasonal beers vary wildly from one year to the next, as might be expected). 20 years ago it would have been a pipe dream to find an amber ale this good that was brewed this side of the Atlantic, and that is saying a great deal. RE-RATE BEGINS HER: Lately, I have had this more frequently on draft than in bottles, and I have to up it a bit. My original rating (3.3) I stick to for bottle, but on draft, this is *truly* good! Yet another beer that you havenít really had until youíve had it off the tap.

Riotbeard (107) - Birmingham, USA - JUN 19, 2010
This beer is drinking incredilby well. It is impeccably balanced. Aroma is minimal with hints of caramel. Appearance is amber with stagnant carbonation. Taste is malt forward balanced by a slight hop bitterness with strong caramel notes. Palate is very smooth and dry. Great beer.

bag (106) - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Pours cloudy orange with foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Fruity, malty aroma. Slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Lively, but smooth. I really, really like this one. Not my typical favorite type of beer, but if Iím looking to kick back a bunch of beers, Iíll try to gt a case of this stuff. I could drink 9 of these, and Iíd enjoy every bit of it.

Bottle. Cloudy medium amber color. Average head. VERY smooth on palate. Nice light malty flavor with light hop flavor. More malt than hop flavor

ludhaber (105) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2013
The beer has good malt taste. Excellent balance. A little light on the malt mouthfeel. Aroma is also very light and somewhat insufficient for a really good beer. This beer is just fine.

hoppygrrrl (104) - Albion, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2003
(On tap at Bell's) With an unexpectedly light color for an "amber" ale, this brew has a sweet aroma. Hoppy, tangy flavor, but falls flat. In sum: OK, but rather disappointing.
