3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear bright golden with a soapy white head. The aroma has rye spice heavily, floralness, husk, minor toasted malt and spicy/earthy hops. It has a medium / light rough body with a paperiness to it and fairly abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts out very dry with lots of rye, some bright golden ale hidden under the assertive rye. The earthy / spicy hops from the aroma are there as well. The finish is ultra dry, crisp and clean. The rye sticks in the mouth for a while.

750 bottle #240 of 433. Golden color tan head. Good crisp taste. Not hoppy but that rye flavor you have come to love is prevalent. Very yummy beer for a 60 degree day in winter while watching football.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, bottled 1/15/13. Mostly clear golden color, hazy with many particles in the body. Good thin off-white head, leaves decent lace. Medium body, good creamy texture. Very smooth, crisp carbonation makes for easy drinking. Nice bitter taste. Good earthy citrusy hops aroma, light spicy and floral hop, some toasty malt. Good stuff. Drinkable and tasty. Nice choice for this oddball 50F January day, will definitely be a pleasure to drink when real spring comes.

Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good; a cloudy orange with fluffy off-white head. Smells solid; citrus hops, pale malt, and a touch of spice. Tastes like it smells with a nice rye tingle on the tongue. Good stuff.

12oz bottle pours partly cloudy yellow with eggshell head. Nice aroma of malt, hops, and rye. The flavor is mostly the rye with hop and malt undertones. Not a fan favorite but decent enough.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof. Medium golden pour, off-white head. Odd aroma - slightly glue-like, hint of grain. Flavor has some spearmint notes, some nuttiness, some earthiness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Hard to get a handle on this one - decent. but not one of Bell’s best.

Golden amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is grainy sweetness, light green vegetables, citrus hopiness, very faint rye spice. Slightly sweet, grainy, more vegetables with some piney hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Not the best from Bell's.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden brown on tap with thin cream colored head and great lacing. Aroma of barley and rye malts, with hints of caramel. Taste is zesty but subdued, nice balance, slightly bitter, but a little thin. Pretty decent, but not as good as.some other Bells efforts.
