2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a quickly dissipating white head. Pale malts dominate with light touches of floral notes, but has a weak aroma in general. It has only a slightly bitter taste with a lighter body. Dry finish devoid of most taste. A decent palate cleanser and pretty refreshing, but nothing special in terms of taste.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks great: murky golden, large head, big time crown of lace. English malt aroma: sugary, strange hint of lemon? It’s more English than American. Malt-forward. It’s a dry feel, along with a sweetish flavor. Citrus hops and caramel malts. It’s perfectly pleasant, just isn’t what I expect from Bells.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Midwest backlog 08/2013, thanks to Joel in Traverse City, MI for a great choice of house beer). Smooth, lean and delicate blondish PA, with hints of non-sticky caramel and floral hops. Appropriately runny, drinks easy like the Midwest’s true sessioning Pils. Unassuming, but nice to notice Bells is concerned about balance for a 5% brew and I can imagine having Hopslam on your record takes off some pressure off the US hop overdosing imperative.

Pours a golden color with a slight had and white head. The smell is grain, some spiciness, wheat, floral boss. The taste is light sweet malt, some spiciness, fruit ending dry with floral hops. Light body with very nice carbonation.
