2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is golden and slightly cloudy with a minimal white foam cap. Aroma is spicy, earthy, herbal hops, with a hint of malt. Taste is bready, slightly toasted malt with an assertive but balance hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation. Finish is a lingering but not overpowering hop bitterness. Looks like an APA, smells like an English bitter, tastes like a pilsner.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is sour, rotten fruit. I donít get it. Tastes similar, not like I feel a pale ale should taste. Very little hop taste. Not much to like here.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass: Pours pale golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is light floral, citrus, bready malts, cereal, and a little resin. Taste is light cereal malts, a little fruity, citrus, and pine resin with a tiny hop bite at the back end. Light body, medium carbonation, this one needs a bit more flavor. Decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is a very cloudy gold with a lingering white head, which leaves slight lacing. Aroma is piney, with some hoppy hints. Taste is a little hoppy too, with a bitter finish. Not too much going on there, to be honest. Overall itís a decent beer, but lacking a certain complexity Iíve come to expect from Bellís.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very clear amber-gold color. Medium head with decent lacing. Interesting aroma, sourly funky, not very enjoyable to me. Taste is bready with very reserved citrus notes. Bells has made better, but still a drinkable session beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose has a little bit of toasty malt and a bit of light fruit. Some pear and peach with a touch of soft spice. Moderate bitterness and a nice fruity finish. Has a little bit of floral character. Itís quite nice and fairly unique.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a golden blonde colour with some haze from some decent-sized floaties and an average-sized white head that leaves a little lace. Aroma is pale malt and floral, grassy hops. Flavour is bready and gently spicy with pale malt and solid floral/grassy hops. Average body. Not a showstopper but eminently drinkable.
