COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing, blond colored pale ale. Bell’s pale ale is made almost exclusively from pale malt. It expresses a spicy floral hop aroma and taste.

Bottle. Pours a very hazy amber, with a nice head - lacy, with small bubbles. Aroma is balanced though not too distinctive, with notes from the yeast, hops, and malt. Flavor is hop-driven (mostly floral and resin notes), with a sweet malt backbone. The yeast gives some unfortunate soapy character to the beer. A solid enough pale ale, though I’d prefer one with more assertive hops.

Bottle into a tulip. Cloudy golden orange, light tan. Orange-citrus notes, light honey sweetness. Light bitterness, moderately sweet. Medium body, touch of effervescence. Mild carbonation. Fine.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Earthy aroma with absolutely no head at all. All and all it wasn’t bad, wasn’t great.

The Midwestern Pale Ale pours a partly cloudy golden yellow with just a bit of orange color with a a thick off-white head that lasts a good while. The aroma is floral and wheat. The flavor is floral and wheat as well. Overall this is a decent beer.

Bork (314) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Decidedly different APA with less of the characteristic pine and citrus and a lot more flowers. Relatively low on aroma and flavor.

Surprisingly good. Very crisp and well thought out. Smooth and I thought the appearance was very good. Definitely had a nice blend and the herbs were positive throughout.

eaglebones (38) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy yellow-orange with moderate white head. Fruity, floral aroma. Thin body with crisp finish. Not much going for flavor but it has a nice hoppy bite. Okay, but not one of my favorites from Bell’s.

Good aroma of a pale. Very foggy golden color. Flat one noted taste an lingering alcoholic malt finish. Not a go to beer.

tomer (1753) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2014
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, snallish head, murky lightish orange with some floaties, aroma of wet wool, skunk and sewer and some strange spiciness, strange sourness and foul bitterness. This beer has seen much better days.

DSG (6229) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Hazy gold. Aroma of stale hops and some cardboard. Slightly sweetish flavor, stale, with some cardboard, stale hops and some bitterness. Medium-bodied. Too old.

"a nice, simple tasty pale ale, courtesy of pfoxyjon. floral and spicy hop aroma. light in color and body with a well-balanced flavor of pale malts, bready and hoppier than the average pale. quite good for the style, and easy drinkin."
