The beer that helped build our brewery; Bell’s Amber Ale features both toasted and sweet caramel notes from carefully selected malts, balanced with herbal and citrus hop aromas. Capped by a clean bitterness, it’s incredibly versatile with food, but very tasty on its own.

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!

This is WAY underrated as a "very good". In aligning with another rating I had seen..it does remind me of what is called a bitter... when you order it at a pub in the UK. They "pull" it up by pumping the handle at the bar and it comes up through pipes/tubes connected to the keg/barrels from the cellar. I went there way before great American craft breweries began the revolution here, so the brew in the UK was even more special back then.

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