Pours a nice yellowish gold color. Fruity and a slight sweet flavor that quickly gives way to a bitter dry finish.

Golden honey in colour. Bunch of sediment. Grainy notes, some honey liqour. Slight sweet tip leaping into a dry-grain and bitter finish. Decent but not my favorite Bell’s.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky golden color with lots of little floaters and a small foamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and a bit skunky with faint golden fruits. The flavor was dry, astringent and very bitter with a chalky presence and touches of pepper and golden fruits. Medium length dry finish of chalk and fruit. Medium body. Eh.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow, golden color (when you leave behind the huge amount of yeast and sediment) with a frothy white head that cakes the glass with lace. Big citrus and floral aroma with some spice. Light bodied, heavily carbonated and a lasting finished. Drinks pretty dry with lot’s of rye malt character which overshadows hop flavor. This is a strange brew not my favorite from Bell’s or of rye beers.

Pourer from a bottle at Five Star. Orange yellow pour with a ton of sediment and floaties. Crisp sharp bitter citrus taste. Interesting beer. The bitterness might be too much but still enjoyed

Very flavorful and complex for a pale ale - the rye really adds to the flavor. roasty, some orange, full-bodied, some cereal and could use more hops, but otherwise a very nice offering from Bells.

Well its the first day of spring so even though its 25 degrees and lightly snowing in Detroit this still seems appropriate. Pours a lazy golden with thin head. Nose of light spices and honey. tastes bitter of orange citrus, juicy fruit gum, grains, white pepper, light toffee. odd but interesting spring seasonal

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dull amber gold. Thin white cap that leaves good lacing.
Aroma: Citrus and sweet grain notes.
Taste: Spicy and citrusy hops out of the gate, apricot, dry spicy malt. Lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, rough peppery carbonation.
Overall: A super tasty, hoppy pale ale, with uniqueness that separates it from the usual spring time drinking offerings.

Hazy gold. Sunrise in a glass. Light head, some lacing. Strong citrus notes, not acid... Smooth. The rye adds a bit of earth, grassy flavors. Another solid offering from Bells
