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: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottled November 20, 2013.

A: Hazy copper-amber body with a finger of foamy white head. Spotty lacing.

S: Toasty malts and some earthy hops. Light but pleasant.

T: Mild and sweet caramel/bread malt flavor with earthy, floral, and citrus hops.

M: Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, very smooth and creamy, goes down easily.

O: Incredibly easy to drink. I hadn't had this in a while, but it reminds me of how a lot of people (myself included) treat Bell's Oberon in the summer- very sessionable (not in terms of ABV, but balance and enjoyability).

A: Hazy honey-amber in color with a small off-white head. No lacing.

S: Modest caramel malt and earthy hops.

T: Biscuity malt foundation with a modest leafy, earthy hop bitterness at the finish with a touch of lemon. Nice balance. Reminds me of a good ESB.

M: Light-to-medium in heft; carbonation is modest and fine.

O: A nice easy drinker.
