A refreshing, blond colored pale ale. Bellís pale ale is made almost exclusively from pale malt. It expresses a spicy floral hop aroma and taste.

Thick white head, just short of amber body. Almost exceedingly billowy head with good retention but only partially dissipates. Tastes alive with cascade hops throughout the process, which is where the strong but not harsh hop taste seems to come from. Could almost be hoppier, or have a little more variance between aroma and flavor for character. A rare find down here in NC.

Bottle, 2 months old. Got it accidentally in a 6 of Oarsman, glad I tried it without springing for 6. Kind of a muted version of Oberon with less wheat and less hop zing. Light to medium body. Not a standout but fine.

trapped (1072) - New York City, TURKEY - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle @ NYC Craft Beer Festival. Pale yellow with small foamy off-white head, no specific aroma, high carbonation, bitter taste, medium finish. Not exactly the best Bellís Iíve tried.

A relatively simple beer done well. Not trying too hard not reaching too high. It's actually better than I remember it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1384) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Yellow gold with a one-finger white head and moderate lace. Pale malt aromas accompanied by spice and citrus. Light bitterness up front offset by a pale malt middle with citrus and spice in the end. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and a clean finish.

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.

Tap. Pours a faint golden with creamy off white head. Aroma and taste of toasted malts, slight hops, pine.

Faint pine spice aroma. Taste is a faint pine hop with a hint of wheat. Decent enough

JoeMcPhee (8788) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
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.

EyeAmBaldman (356) - Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2015
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.
