Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-12-2001

Amber Ale deftly balances a mixture of toasted grain & light caramel notes with a range of floral, citrus and herbal hop notes, capped by a clean bitterness. This balance of flavors makes Amber Ale quite versatile as a food pairing option, not to mention being rather tasty in its own right. Whether serving as a jumping point to other styles or as a familiar standby, Amber Ale is central to the Bell’s portfolio.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy medium copper with a 2 finger bubbly white head. Lots of sediment floating around. Decent lacing throughout.

Smell: Sweet caramel malt with a hint of floral and citrus hops.

Taste: Sweet citrus up front followed by caramel in the middle and toasted malt with just a hint of hops at the finish. Mildly bitter, dry and smoky aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Very high drinkability. You could knock back several of these without any problem.

Overall: Very good beer overall and one of the best I've had in the style. I would definitely recommend it. Another solid offering from Bell's.
