4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden color out of the bottle, a decent sized head that stuck around and a good amount of cardonation.
Citrusy flavor with slight resin aftertaste.
Reminded me of SNPA, but not quite as good, still a quality midwestern brew however.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light gold color, white frothy head. Light lemony/grapefruity hop aroma. Grassy citrus orange taste like orange soda with a brown sugar sweetness. For some reason it has some alcohol burn in the stomach after only a few sips. Maybe its the carbonation. Resiny aftertaste/feeling that turns buttery. Not bad, but not top notch.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
not a bad outing from bells in the apa sector, but i was by no means blown away by it. enjoyed it about as much as the victory hop devil i had just tried. similar in taste, a little bit lighter though. drank this poolside which may help it out, just because i love apaís on nice hot summer days. they just seem to hit the spot so well. another addition to my rotating weekly 6íer to add.

Considering the quality of their specialty beers,I was pretty disappointed with this one. Barely avg. pale ale,mild hops,easy to drink but unimpressive and overpriced.

Golden cloudy pour with yeast floaties. Nose is spicy hoppy smelling. Flavor is uneventful but a decent earthy hop flavor.

Pours a golden color with a nice big frothy white head. I expected more in the nose, but only got a mild spicey hoppiness. Gentle malt flavors up front with a spiced hoppiness in the finish. Not too bad!

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a thin head that had some decent lacing. The beer was filled with "floaters". To me, the beer smelled "cheap". I didnít get what everyone else smalled. I was expecting more zing in this Pale. Some decent lacing from the thin head. Not as much hops as I would have liked. I just havenít found a Bellís that has made me want to buy another sicer yet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice example of a good pale ale. Colour is golden with a medium white frothy head. Looks like it is quite carbonated. The aroma of wet grass and florals ascends from the glass. Has flavors of grass, big time hops, light citrus, and some kind of flower. Nice bitter end.
