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. 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 it’s a decent beer, but lacking a certain complexity I’ve come to expect from Bell’s.

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

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. It’s quite nice and fairly unique.

EyeAmBaldman (407) - Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is sour, rotten fruit. I don’t get it. Tastes similar, not like I feel a pale ale should taste. Very little hop taste. Not much to like here.

bellco33 (502) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2014
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.

mambossa (144) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2014
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.

Spab (2879) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
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.
