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.

Bottled. From trade with pailhead, thank. Pours a cloudly orange/golden yellow....almost witbier-ish color. Head was almost not existent with no lacing. Aroma is of earthy and spicy hops with plenty of fruit and malt notes in the background. Flavor is of sweet base malt upfront with a moderate hop following: earthy and slightly acidic. Ester profile was complementing yet moderate. Hop bitterness was adequate for balance between it, the malt, and the hop flavor. Finishes dry and yet empty. Body is decent and smooth. Carbed well. Decent pale ale though I think it need a dose of citrussy US hops.

Fules (827) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2016
Közepes, rendkívül tartós hab, borostyán szín, szűretlen. Illata gabonás, enyhén fűszeres, pici citrussal. Íze gabonás, gyümölcsös, citrusos, némi gyanta. Kissé fanyar, száraz, közepesen testes, frissítő sör, közepes szénsavtartalommal és keserűvel. Finom, visszafogott APA.

Pours straw yellow with moderate beige foam and some lacing. Malts dominate the nose with pale and cereal strongest. The hops tend toward grassy. The hops come out stronger on the tongue and more citrusy. Medium body and light fizz, slightly watery texture.
