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.

I enjoyed this pale ale. The opaque golden-yellow appearance reminded me of a whiskey sour. The taste has a big hop presence with a little balancing sweetness. simply good stuff.

Cloudy, light caramel color. Decent white head that lasted a good while. Hoppy flavor, not too bitter. Not quite as good as the summer Oberon Ale.

As good as Bells ales are, I’ve had plenty of better Pales, but still worth drinking.

I guess the monk on the bottle should have given me a clue. This is more complex than most pale ales. Richer, fuller, better. It has a really great balance of malt and hops. A solid amount of carbonation too.

Nice pale ale, would prefer a bit more hoppy, but for michigan pale’s I would suggest to go with the founders dry-hopped, if you like em hoppy.

Very good pale ale. Hits the toungue lightly and leaves a great taste.

By bottle or keg, this is a smooth beer, great for sharing. Shared a keg with several hundred in a multi-cultural setting and it was well received by all.
