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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is plenty of the rye, nice and spicy. Flavor is more spicy rye. No real hop presence but this beer is all about the rye. Not very complex but definitely a showcase of the malt used.

Pours cloudy golden with a large white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is mostly floral hops, slightly spicy rye notes. Taste is a balance of spicy rye and floral/herbal hops, quick finish. Not bad, but wouldn’t buy it again.
