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

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Had an awesome floral aroma with a follow on of a sweet yeast scent. Appearance- The color was an off orange color with a small head. Taste- Excellent flavor, Medium bodied with a sweet initial flavor followed by a slight bitter finish Palate- Great on the tongue slightly thick texture with light carbonation. Overall- An excellent beer, Bell’s has done it again.
