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.

Surprisingly good. Very crisp and well thought out. Smooth and I thought the appearance was very good. Definitely had a nice blend and the herbs were positive throughout.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow-orange with moderate white head. Fruity, floral aroma. Thin body with crisp finish. Not much going for flavor but it has a nice hoppy bite. Okay, but not one of my favorites from Bell’s.

Good aroma of a pale. Very foggy golden color. Flat one noted taste an lingering alcoholic malt finish. Not a go to beer.

tomer (2133) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2014
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, snallish head, murky lightish orange with some floaties, aroma of wet wool, skunk and sewer and some strange spiciness, strange sourness and foul bitterness. This beer has seen much better days.

DSG (8346) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Hazy gold. Aroma of stale hops and some cardboard. Slightly sweetish flavor, stale, with some cardboard, stale hops and some bitterness. Medium-bodied. Too old.

"a nice, simple tasty pale ale, courtesy of pfoxyjon. floral and spicy hop aroma. light in color and body with a well-balanced flavor of pale malts, bready and hoppier than the average pale. quite good for the style, and easy drinkin."

Bottle. Crisp wheat, pale malt with a harsh bite, floral hops, some spice. Not very good overall, lacking balance.

Bottle. Clear dark gold and white head. Aroma and taste are slightly funky, almost like barnyard and corn with some citrus. Crisp mouthfeel. Not my favorite.

A nutty flavor with no after taste. Has a bit of a bitter taste though. It is light but wouldn’t get a round two for me.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise liquors in Watford City. Appearance: 2 fingers white, straw color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: biscuits and wheat, light citrus, caramel, floral. Palate: light body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, slight dry finish, sticky texture. Taste: sweet caramel and wheat, into a floral hops that is balanced well by the caramel. Overall, decent balance, but nothing special about this beer.
