    Batch #7100. Pours a orange/amber color as you would expect, with a half inch off-white head that fades to a thin soapy cap, leavng behind a nice webbing of lace. Smell; lots of biscuity and caramel malts, with a bigger hop profile than I was expecting. Taste; nice rich caramel malts, with some solid biscuit flavors. As with the smell there's a fairly strong hop presence for an amber, that are somewhat floral. There's a bit of warming in the back of my throat from the alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a very good drinkability. This is prbably one of the better red/amber ales that I've ever had.

    Pours a dark red body, cloudy from yeast sediment, with a smallish head. The aroma is malty, with a touch of hops (perhaps nobles). The flavor is wood malt, a slightest touch of caramel, and an almost tea-like flavor. Good session beer.

    (Batch #7100 Oct 10,2005) This amber ale pours a medium orange color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, floral hops, sweet and fruity. A medium bodied amber. Malts are very fruity and sweet, with nice caramel malts. Hops are kind of mildly grapefruity and floral. Nice balance. Smooth taste. Yes, its an amber , but it’s a drinkable amber. Would make a good session brew. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    I almost completely agree with heemer77...weird. I found this today at Waldo Pizza in KC, MO for only three dollars, what a find! Poured with a nice off white head over an expectedly amber body. Creamy head and light, well carbed mouthfeel that coated nicely. Smelled of sweet, toatsy, nutty maltiness with hints of hops. Delicious, another Bell's beer I would drink again. Again, congrats on a balanced beer for their anniversary...but don't get me wrong Batch 7000 was great, too.

    Poured with a very dark and slightly cloudy amber colored body. The head is thin and slightly yellow colored. The aroma is oranges and a little bit of caramel. There is also a little bit of musty old candy. The taste is very mild and restrained, even for an amber. It is very much on the malt side with caramel and peanuts. There is a slight butter note. You can sense the hops more than taste them. You get a little shot of citrus in the back of the throat. A nice and very sessionable tasting amber. But at 6.5%, you might want to take it easy. Congratulations to Bell’s for going with a restrained, well made and balanced beer rather than a huge monster for their anniversary.
