2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark hazy gold with nice two-finger off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind a lot of sticky lace.
Aroma is of pale malt with a little citrus. Not very interesting in the nose department.
The flavor is good. light sweetness, medium bitterness, a bit biscuity. Definitely good but no real wow factor.
This beer has a light body though is a bit creamy and sticky. It has lively carbonation and a long dry finish.
All in all this is not one of Bell’s best. However, even the worst beer from one of the best breweries in the world is still worth a try. Not an outstanding pale ale but still a decent beer.

12 oz bottle: Straw blonde color. Grainy, hay, sweet corn aroma. On the palate it reminds me of a pilsner or a crisper Kölsch with an unexpectedly robust hop bitterness. Some nice ester-y complexity in the finish. Not your typical pale ale - a nice summer brewski.

Flaska från Mikkellers webshop. Riktigt fin maltkropp, stor för stilen, mjuk, krämig som passar bar med den lite gräsiga och örtiga humlen med en lätt blommig touch. TRevlig.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Muted sweet malt initially. Richer bitterness than expected. Pilsner like bitterness on the finish...peppery. Lingers a bit.

Bottled. Okay. A little bit thin in taste and hop character for a pale ale. Mediocre.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very slight hazy, golden in color. Medium to large head with just a tad of lace. Aroma is very mild floral, grass hops, just a tad weak and watery. Taste is a nice crisp hoppy bite up front with a mild, not too bitter finish.
