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.

Looks like urine! Luckily it doesn’t taste like it. Hot a lot of taste to this pale. respecitble, but I’ve come to expect more from Bell’s.

The color's that of ripe apricot, the head a solid, stocky white. Aromas are explosive, spinning off citrus, primarily grapefruit, orange, lemon, and a whiff of spice. A downright friendly finish, that meets you, and greets you and treats you right. Awash in bitter, but fruity flavor, with a sensational, and long lasting drizzle of hops. Fresh, sea-foamy nose. Light body, excellent texture and mouthfeel, full of that unexplainable effervescence that permeats all of Bell's ales. It's got to be that yummy, yummy yeast. One hell of a great pale ale!

Bottle. Light golden color ale with a thin, very fine bubbled head that lasts forever. Decent lacing. Grassy and citrusy hop aroma. Lookig into the light, this beer is hazy, like a wheat. And it is not too cold. Tastes like it smells with enough malt flavor to balance it out. Does have a spiciness to it. Dry and refreshing with plenty of carbonation and a thin but creamy mouthfeel. Bitterness lingers a bit. Good beer, but I like their Amber Ale better.

temporrari (383) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2004
Bottled. A good standard pale ale. Hoppy aroma and flavor of course. Nothing really unique, doesn't stand out, but it's a nice beer I enjoy here and there.

Pours a dark yellow. The beer is actually opaque. The smell is of light hops. The taste is a bit sour as well. Overall average pale ale.

yellow and bubbly.. white head with nice lacing. sharp citrus and hops in the smell. the flavor is bitter and stale. with a biting aftertaste. overall i might like the beer were it not for the stale pervasive element to the flavor.

(Bottle) Pours a golden color with a medium white frothy head. Many tiny white floaties and lots of carbonation make this beer resemble some science experiment from the movies. I am waiting for the eruption of fumes from my beer beaker… The aroma of wet grass and florals ascends from the glass. Has flavors of grass, light hops, citrus, and sour milk.

TChrome (1420) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Quite light in color this very light golden brew has lots of floaties and a bubbly egg white head with good retention. Nice light hop aroma. Flavor is hoppy, spicy, and dry. I could easily drink a bunch of these in the summer time down here in Texas.

3fourths (8102) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: APR 16, 2004 Up my review... this stuff is magic on a hot day. Slightly murky yellow with a small white head. Smells like a grain and sour wheat aroma. Taste is a crisp lemon and grass, light lager-like sourness. Fizzy and medium bodied. Ok in certain settings.

This would make a great session beer. Light hoppy arona and a golden hazy appearance. More like a wheat beer than a pale with a frothy everlasting head of white clingy foam. Flavor was tame with a decent hop finish. An all around good beer.
