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.

Pleasing look. Amber color with a nice head. Looks better then it tastes. Not much of a WOW factor. Seems to have an abudance of hops and malts, but nothing prominent. I wouldnít drink more than one at a time. Maybe best for me for an after dinner drink. My wife enjoyed this more, so Iíll likely be trying this again.

Bottle from Sully Thanks!

Pours a nice amber, with a slim head but clinging lace. Aroma is strawberry malt with hops afterthoughts. Bits of cereal interdispersed as well. Flavor is a blunt fruity malt flavor, with touches of hops and bitters. Palate suits. Another quality brew from Bells.

poured a nice copper color with a sweet aroma. Was pretty cloudy with sediment. Flavor is sweet with a hops bite. Palate was fair, nothing special. Good but not the best amber ale

Sweet caramel malt flavor tinged with yeast and fruit. Simple, substantial brew.

Very smooth poor and taste. You will not find a higher quality amber. This is my favorite brewer in this style.

Bottle from Hy-Vee poured into english pint - Pours a cloudy amber with a 1 finger off-white head; A nutty, malty, toasty aroma with a certain sweetness to the nose; Gentle grassy hops and a big malt note on the initial taste; Nutty, toasty, dry aftertaste with some faint hops; Good medium body; Carbonation was present but not intrusive; Got some sediment accidentally. A lot nuttier than other ambers Iíve tried. Not bad at all.

Having just had two draft pints of this with my dinner at Chicagoís excellent Wishbone Restaurant, I can report that it is a solid, satisfying brew, although not the equal of the other Bells Iíve tried (the Oberon, the Porter, and the Special Cream Stout). Among ambers, I rate Fischer higher.

Iíve never been as big a fan of this as other people. Seems out of kilter.

Slightly cloudy, dark orange color. Slight hoppy, fruit aroma. Very bitter finish with a touch of fruit. This is a great brewery by the way, gotta love the stout selection - amazing. Go there in November, when the stouts are brewed.
