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.

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.

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

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.

drseamus (103) - Troy, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2007
A: The body is an exceptionally clear amber color topped with a very small white head that fell quickly. S: There is a pleasant sweet malty aroma with caramel notes from the beer. T: There is a bit of hoppiness that presents itself in the flavor; having been hidden in the aroma. This is backed up by a bit of caramel but is bitterness dominated. M: This is a good light bodied beer without being watery. D: Nothing in this beer really stands out even though it is a solid beer. A good example of an amber ale but not one to write home about. Would make a good session beer though.

This is an awesomly thick amber ale with loads of flavor. Agreat traveling beer as it does not need to be fridge-cold to be enjoyable.

Light amber with little head but very clingy. Light malty aroma. Light creamy malty swee taste with a hint of black currant, nicely offset with finishing hops. Surprisingly light mouthfeel considering the taste. Finishes a bit fuller than the start.

Bellís in Colorado!!! Gotta love that. Against other ambers this would be one of my favorites, that being said still not an amazing beer or style. Smells like light biscuit and orange, hint of toffee. Flavor is good with nice bittering orange peel hops to clean it up. Mouthfeel is medium with medium high carbonation.
