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 (12oz)] Pours a cloudy copper-gold with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt, grain, light hops and a bit of fruit. Floral hops flavour, a little spicy, and with some bready malt, fruit and a moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. More like a hoppy Blonde Ale then a Pale Ale but either way, it's pleasant enough.

chucklemation (426) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours a murky dark yellow, not much of a head. Aroma is light wheat. Flavor is dominated by wheat with hints of lemon. There is medium carbonation. No hops or bitterness. I find this to be a pretty solid pale ale despite the lack of complexity.

Campy877 (167) - Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a nice heavy white head and a hazy golden color. Has a spicy aroma and a hard to pace taste. It is equal parts IPA and lager. But of a heavy aspirin flavored finish but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerandbeyond (664) - ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Hazy golden color with a decent fluffy white head. Pleasant citrus aroma, with some grains and bread, faint spicy hops. Clean malt and hops flavors, some graininess, mellow citrus peel, med-hi bitterness, and some pine. Light-med body, dry and refreshing. Cool.

Bottle. Yellow/orange pour with white head and some sediment. Smells of malts, hops and an earthyness. Taste follows along with some funk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nittanytide (225) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Poured golden with a big, bubbly head. Grassy, floral aroma. Taste is mostly grass and somewhat one dimensional, but fulfilling. Dry finish.

ESBob (355) - Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with slight white head. Aroms is earthy floral, a bit bready/grainy. Taste is a light malt with slight light citrus and only a mild earthy hop note. An easy drinker here.

Huhzubendah (2431) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 15, 2014
The beer is golden hued with a half inch or so of head. Scents of bread, grain, mild hops. Pretty clean and easy drinking, though a bit bland. Not a lot of hop character here, though perhaps that is intentional. A bready, grainy beer that may be a nice counterbalance to some chili or spicy wings. Middle of the road.
