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.

Hazy golden body with floaties, topped by small white head. Aroma is mild floral, mild sweet. Taste is mild for the most part, finishing floral bitter. Acidic. Medium/light body.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2003
Looks just like a wheat beer, cloudy deep golden color with small white head of foam. Smells kind of yeasty with a slight floral aroma. Very crisp and effervescent. Flavor is a little stale with a slight bitterness. Not one of the best pales I've had. Would prefer a little more hop presence. Reminds sme of one of my homebrews I used to make. Not as good as some of their other brews. This brewery seems to be inconsistant in my opinion. They have some stellar brews and some like this one. Just doesn't impress me.

Fruit, malt aroma, golden,large off-white head, pretty lace. Hoppy at the front, orange flavours in the middle, dry at the finish. Medium bodied, nice crisp, hoppy bite. Good.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Pours orange, chock full (almost choked with) dark sediment. Floral aroma followed by a floral, hoppy flavor. Not very strong, however, and finishes with a bitter aftertaste.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2003 Mild aroma. Orange in color with small head. Light citrus flavor and light malt.A little hoppy. Not one of Bells best.

Dogbrick (8654) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2003
I have to say I was a little disappointed in this beer, especially after being so impressed by most of the other Bell's brews I have tried. Pours an almost sickly looking light orange color with a thin and foamy white head. Very floral hops aroma, with light citrus notes as well. Flavor is mild, with perfumy hops and light malt. Finish is crisp and light, with a nice hops presense lingering. Okay, but gimme an Expedition next time.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew has a very mild aroma almost non-existent. It has a light yellow orange body with no head and great lacing. It also has a bit of an after bite. I found it impossible to describe the taste. It was an OK brew, but not one of my favorites from Bells.

Nice sweet and hardy aroma. Flavor is also relatively sweet but still feels full and complex. Good maltly flavorand a small hoppy finish.
