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.

Clear golden pour with a dishsoap head. Aroma is surprisingly malty. Taste is rather dirty mixed with sopme malt and spice.

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!

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.

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.

Looks like urine! Luckily it doesnít taste like it. Hot a lot of taste to this pale. respecitble, but Iíve come to expect more from Bellís.

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!
