Bells scores again, a truly great tasting beer. Though it has more hops than I usually prefer, this beer is still a winner.

Although I remember a more intense aromain previous bottlings, this beer still has a famialiar piney taste as a result of the fuggles. A great pale ale.

I am more of a porter and stout man as opposed to pale ales but this one was really good. Do I detect a hint of cherries?

From it’s thick, long-lasting head, fruity/spicy nose, with a flavor of sweet citrus undertones and a spicy bite, to its nicely bitter finish, this is a very flavorful, well-balanced pale ale. Its only drawback may be the yeasty appearance, which may put some people off (but not me). As Larry Bell says, ’Live Life Unfiltered’.
