Good sweeter ale smell, taste is hoppier though...malt is sweeter and hops are bitter than normal it seems..straightforward no perks here

Just fine pale. Cloudy gold pour. Biscuits and hay on the nose. Slight spice and fruit sweetness in taste. Bitter and dry finish. A little weak mouthfeel. Not bad, but not special.

12oz bottle pour. Cloudy orange with full head. Toast aromas. Hay and grass as well. All pulled into taste. Lighter body. A little nutty. Great, for what it is.

Quite serviceable. Completely unremarkable but has appeal with a biscuit, toast and dry grass hops (quite old fashioned). Floral twist to finish with a mild spicy note. Grows on you.

Bottle at home. Bright gold pour with heavy sediment. Floaties. Subdued aroma of sweet malt and tropical fruits. The flavor is sweet and fruity, with over ripe pineapple and peach coming through. Crisp, clean finish, with a bit of white pepper astringency. Doesn’t meet Bells standards, IMO.

12 oz bottle into an English pint. The pour is a light coppery gold with a little bit of sediment, probably due to the little bit of age it's got on it. There is a nice white head that fades down, leaving a little bit of spotty lace. The aroma is definitely malty and carries a little bit of fruit. There isn't a whole lot of hoppiness as I'd expect, but it's good to have something a little different. The aroma does seem a little light. The flavor carried a little bit of bitterness on the front end, before fading through a light fruitiness and a good maltiness. There isn't much else there, but it's a pale ale. The mouth feel is quite thin, as expected, with a decent carbonation, but the aftertaste is really quick fading, and lightly bitter

I really like this wheat beer. Can taste the bits of pale wheat with some slight spices and citrus fruits. No hops noted in it

From bottle. Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a white head. Faint aroma. Taste is dry and bitter with not much else. Medium mouthfeel on the thin side. I like a lot of the offerings from Bells, but this one doesn’t do it for me.

golden in color and flavor, wheaty, with sugar and light red fruit. some hop and a good fuller body to go with the full flavor. the brew has a tang to it yet strangley something seems amiss. weak for a pale and meandering for a blonde.

12 oz bottled over 6 months ago, purchased at John’s Grocery ($1.79) and poured into a pint glass at home. Orange and hazy appearance with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted grains, pale malts, floral notes, citrus hops and light spice. Flavor is medium spicy hop bitterness and light toasty malt sweetness. Medium body, crisp and dry with a lingering finish. Eh, it’s OK, not too fresh.
