Bell's Amber Ale

Return to List

A classic, clean and remarkably balanced brew, this showcases superb harmony between the sweet and toasty notes of an amber ale, with just the right amount of bitterness on the finish. The caramel-malt backbone grounds the experience, with supporting notes of citrus rind, toasted brown bread and burnt sugar. The mouthfeel is smooth, yet bold, with ample carbonation to keep the robust flavor profile from feeling too dense or weighty. The alcohol isn't noticeable at all amid the slightly oversteeped tea-like texture, and a hint of peanut skin lingers on the close. Lauren Buzzeo
