3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

I was expecting more hops in this Pale Ale from Bellís. Beer was lightly hopped and had a golden color. I found it to be very enjoyable beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
