3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ Drake’s / Florence KY Clear medium amber with a 1" head that slowly drops; curtains of lace. Taste is sweet malt with an edge that adds citrus hops early in the palate. A little malt creeps in again in the finish. Not a lot happening here, but it is easy to drink. Good food beer, light enough to session.

Don’t think I am smitten by this one. Bells is one of my favorite brewery’s and while this is not a bad beer this is the one variety that they carry that I can’t see myself making a repeat purchase. Very rare for them. Tastes like a slightly watered down Midwestern pale ale with a dash of hops. A rare "miss" for the boys from Bells.

A light beer with a medium color. Starts with a bitter taste but finishes smoothly. Not bad.

12 oz bottle as a gift from Joe --- thanks! Immediate dryness and a parching effect on the mouth and tongue. Tastes of lemonade and cactus. i liked it despite the tartness.

This pours a clear, light yellow color with a slight carbonated head. The aroma is full of rye and grain scents. The taste is full of rye and has a dry finish. There are lots of earthy tones that make this a fairly easy drinking beer. Interesting and very well made.

Golden color with a white foam head. Has a very light citrus aroma. Taste is mild hops and mild sweetness. Everything about the beer is mild. Not bad, but nothing really stands out.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is a hazy orangeish golden color with a medium white head, and the aroma blends rye and floral hops. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, which is a nice balance not often seen in a rye beer, and the palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation with a bite, and a long finish.

One of bells less inspiring offerings. Nice citrus and hop taste but nothing that makes iy stick out either.

Pours a dark golden color with a small white head, smells of hops citrus and earthy. Taste has a bit of malty sweetness followed by typical APA flavor, citrus and earthy. Nothing too special on this beer

Hazy golden body with a soft, white head. The aroma brings grain, mild hops, earth, citrus. The flavor is ok. A bit too conservative for me. A hint of hops, mild bitterness, finishing dry. Crackers, grain, earth. Middle of the road. Not one of the better offerings from Bell’s.
