3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.....

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Eccentric Café. The pour is a nice clearish golden color with minimal head and a spotty lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice hoppiness and a gorgeous piney resin that really makes this stand out like an IPA rather than a pilsner. The flavor is just as good. The hoppiness and the resin are very profound with a light fruitiness and this is great. Very smooth and lightly bitter. The mouth feel is light, but decently carbonated. The aftertaste is nice and crisp with a lingering bitterness

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour. See-through yellow. Aroma is lemon grass, biscuit malts, and lager yeast. A real nice amalgam of pale ale and lager notes. Taste is crisp citrus notes, bready malts, and a general earthiness. Finishes just a little bitter.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
on tap @ Arnold’s / Cincinnati OH --- Clear light amber with a slow to drop white head, splotches of lace. Taste is simple light malt with an immediate overbalance of citrus hops early in the palate. The hops, though dominant, aren’t very strong (since the malt is light to begin with, they don’t need to be). The total effect for me is of a watered down IPA. Drinkable, especially in hot weather, but not at all memorable.
