Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States
bellsbeer.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

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.

Bottle (2011)

Acquired via trade
Thanks sendsilk!

Orange amber with a quickly forming light khaki colored head. Spotted lacing down the glass.

Bready aroma with caramel and toffee (even honey-like) sweetness pushing through along with a touch of earth and grass.

Simple, bready flavors with a distinct, though light, caramel and toffee sweetness.

Thin to medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

A good, classic amber ale.

Poured into a mug.

A: A slight haze on a golden orange body, The white nose retreats slowly, leaving a thin haze.

S: A malt sweetness is present with the aroma.

T/M: The sweet malts from the nose come through on the taste. A silk mouthfeel brings on other flavors of slight spice.

D: With a nice medium body, this is a nice session beer. Easy drinking brew, that has subtle thickness but still has the crisp freshness.
