Bells is my favorite brewery. Larry Bell is a god. If you tell me that Larry Bell drank a beer in his dreams and then realized it. I will seek this beer out. I will travel to the ends of the earth and back for a chance to try this beer, and I do this because I know it will be worth it. And it is. Bells is one of those breweries that can do whatever they want however they want and it will always be amazing and this beer is no different. This is hands down the best lager I have ever drank. It Pours a fizzy murky lemonade color, with a thick white head and some lacing. Not much of a nose, a little hops and a lot of citrus and grass. The taste is hoppy too. A citrusy ipa flavor, with a pop-like lager body. If you ever come to a place where you can get a bells one off, do it. I?ll come right out and say it, I HATE lagers and I find this beer amazing. This is how all beers should be, delicious, alcoholic, and highly original. Leave it to Larry Bell.....

7/16/2015: Draught at Arnold’s in Cincinnati, Ohio... Pale, cloudy gold color with a white head; this lager seems to be hopped up with citra... it’s grassy and tangy with some mellon and lychee flavors. Average body and mouthfeel. Seems to drink larger than 6.5%. Okay overall, but a pint was more than enough for me.

Pale lemony hue, perfect clarity. Small, silky head of white. Aroma is earthy, with soil and a splash of orange balanced by grass and grain husks. Flavor is clean and crisp, with hops adding a citrusy snap to the otherwise featureless brew. Maybe a little herbal mint in there too. Very dry.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint on tap at Yard House in Kansas City, MO. Aroma has some mango and passionfruit. Some bubble gum hints are also there. This smells like it may be hopped with El Dorado. Transparent yellow body with a medium, fizzy white head. Starts really fruity with raspberry flavors. Some herbal bitter hops to finish. My guess is that this place had a raspberry beer on before this and didn’t clean the lines, which is why I get an overwhelming raspberry flavor to this. Larry Bell should be smarter than to sell his beer to a chain like Yard House.

Aromatic robust lager with an IPA type punch. This beer is very drinkable in a light clean fashion vs. The heavier weight that an IPA is sure to provide. Great taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very light and clean pour with one finger of white head. Nice aroma, resinous and funky/dank with hops. Citrus and floral notes. Nice and lean/dry in the mouth. Touch of a grainy balance with a very clean and bright hoppy finish.
