COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing, blond colored pale ale. Bellís pale ale is made almost exclusively from pale malt. It expresses a spicy floral hop aroma and taste.

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!

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 (397) - 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.
