COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing, blond colored pale ale. Bell’s pale ale is made almost exclusively from pale malt. It expresses a spicy floral hop aroma and taste.

Radek Kliber (6572) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 4, 2004
White head, gold, light floating sediment. Aroma of sweet malt, hoppy, and spicy. Yes spicy pale ale .Pleasant hoppy feel, some malt behind. Rather shy, short brew. This Pale Ale is lacking character.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 New Bottle as Midwestern Pale Ale. Just boring more than anything. Pretty much the same as my previous rating. Nice darker gold coloring with lots of sediment. Huge white head. The aroma is fairly light. Slight sweat sock with some grapefruit. The taste is relatively malty with some tea leaves, dirt and grass. Really very little citrus taste.

Pailhead (5252) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Bottle: Aroma consists of a sweet and hoppy floral nose. Pours a pale and hazy yellow with lots of small sediment floating around. Small white head that lasts a minute or so. Initial flavor is slightly sweet with a moderately bitter finish. Has the grapefruit taste I expect. Medium bitter aftertaste. Nice beer.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2004
Hazy gold. Good carbonation. Dense, bright white head. Spicy hops aroma of mint, pine, & citrus w/ good malt profile. Medium feel. Big hoppy flavour. Perhaps not enough body & malt to support the hops. Extremely long bitter finish.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2004
An unclear orange beer with a small disappearing lazing head. The aroma is very slight, but what is there is of oranges. The flavor is sweet hoppy and malty with a hoppy dry end.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Exceptionally light, almost lager-like color with a haze of diffusely suspended yeast. Faint aroma here-greens, green peppers. Subdued, biscuity malt flavor with a mild, almost Saazy bitterness. Faint peach and caramel make tracks across the finish.

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Pours a hazy golden color, thick and pillowy head, great lacing. Aroma is Hops, hops, hops, hops, and I think I smell a little hops underneath it. Flavor displays remarkable balance compared to the nose, which is quite a suprise. This beer also has a yeasty quality to it that I like a lot.

madsberg (10534) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2004
Bottled: Orange coloured. Unclear. Light off white head. Lasting. Aroma is malty, sweet and has some spice and citrus notes. Fruits in the flaovur. Hops and malt notes is recognized. Has a nice medium bitterness in the end. Refreshing.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Pours a hazy gold color with a slowly diminishing white fizzy head. Tastes of hop spice with a decent earthy hop bite at the end. Body is medium and smooth. A good APA.
