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 wouldn’t drink more than one at a time. Maybe best for me for an after dinner drink. My wife enjoyed this more, so I’ll likely be trying this again. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2006

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 bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 18, 2006

Sweet caramel malt flavor tinged with yeast and fruit. Simple, substantial brew. edfitz (118) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Very smooth poor and taste. You will not find a higher quality amber. This is my favorite brewer in this style. bigcat03 (335) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - FEB 15, 2007
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 I’ve tried. Not bad at all. jhgrantjr (478) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Poured from bottle, a hazy amber color. Aroma if malts, sugar. Taste is malty and sweet, with slight hops at the end. Not a favorite.

Appearance is a clear amber/light brown with a slightly off white foam cap. Aroma is toasted, roasty caramel malt with no noticeable hops. Taste is sweet caramel malt that gives way to toasted notes and a crisp hop bite to balance it out with a slight citrus flavor. Mouthfeel is medium with normal carbonation. Finish is well balanced with a slight drying character. Overall a well made American amber
