Bell's Amber AleBell's Amber Ale

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

I LOVE THIS BEER. Bell's did a great job with this one. It has a beautiful copper color with a off-white, copper tinge head. The aroma smells like caramel and malts. Tastes like roasted caramel, slight maltiness, and a fun bitterness. The aftertaste is warm with roasted flavors. Extremely enjoyable for those that love a toasty, caramel flavored beer. It is by far the perfect beer for tailgating season!

Dark brown and silky, smells like caramel. Tastes very sweet and slightly tangy at the end. Delicious!
