3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great, clean and crisp lager. Slight hop notes in the aroma and flavor. Grainy, clean and simple. Hilarious that some people expect these types of beers to be as flavorful, complex and over-the-top as Two Hearted or Expedition. I’ll drink this beer any time!

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like a regular lager, nice malty and bready. Pretty refreshing, crisp. Tastes like a good higher end regular lager, not bad at all for what it is.

Belmont bottle purchased for making chili but drank straight from the bottle after a day off moving mulch. The beer? Nice refreshing lager that had more hop bite and malt character.

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of malts. Taste pretty much the same. A higher end regular lager.

This is not at all what I expected from Bell’s. The local brewer’s worst offering tastes a lot like this....not good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Pours a golden hue with a small, off white head.
S- Smells bready with light herbal hoppiness.
T- Wheat, light hop notes, bready
M- Medium/think bodied with medium carbonation.
D- This beer, while not terrible, really just fades into the fray for me. With so many other great session beers out there i’m not quite sure why you would pick this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed 10/09/12 when I was visiting Michigan.
The appearance was a light golden yellow colored body and gives a white, fizzy, thin head, a fair amount of carbonation rises quickly. Some ever light ringy lacing appears and slides gently down the sides of the glass.
The smell had a maltiness with a light presence of hops in the background. There is also a strong butteriness as well.
The taste was basically the same.
The palate was light, creamy and pretty carbonated on the tongue, fairly sessionable.
Overall, this is a pretty good American Pale Lager.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy white colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The sharp crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
