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.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Bottle pours an extremely cloudy and silty pale yellow, small white trace for a head, decent carbonation, with fairly spotty lacing.   Malts and cooked vegetables on the nose.   Sharp bitterness up front with very little maltiness.   Boring body, flat finish, with a somewhat thin mouthfeel.   Finishes with a mild hop bitterness.   One of my least liked Bells.   Thanks goes out to atpayne for the trade!

jonas (6301) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2004
Small sample Neutral grainy nose. Cloudy orange yellow, low creamy head. Grain and some fruit flavors. Lightish, thought it was kind of boring.

sfontain (850) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Fairly unimpressive looking: Golden with a small, white head; a ton of yeast. Aroma malty, hoppy, and just ever-so-barely spicy (à la Belgian ale). Flavor heavily malty, a medium-heavy hop bite toward the finish. Medium-thin. Unextraordinary.

Radek Kliber (6825) - 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.

heemer77 (5210) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 4, 2004
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 (6017) - Plymouth, 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 (31467) - 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 (705) - 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.
