3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours golden, with a thin head and lots of floating sediment. There isn’t enough carbonation to circulate the sediment around, so the overall effect is kind of unattractive. Sort of a skunky aroma, with notes of hops, citrus, and tobacco. The flavor is light, with citrus hops and a bit of a bready finish. Not too rye-forward. I always get excited whenever I see a new Bells beer, but this one was a letdown.

Pours a pretty clear gold color. Light fruit, mainly citrus on the nose, with some spice. Spice and fruit on the palate. The rye adds a nice backbone to this beer.

Fresh bottle. Pours bright yellow gold with tall white head. Aroma is grassy, hay, slightly floral, some citrus. Taste is a nice resin burst against the distinctive rye malt. The malt takes over here and gives an earthy taste. Not bad at all.

Bottled 1/27/14. Pour has a medium golden color with some light sediment floating around and a thin cap of white head that fell off. Aroma has rye, nice hops, and pale malt. Mouth feel is medium light with medium low carbonation. Flavor has a bitter rye upfront, flowery hops, lemon zest, and enough supporting malt to hold it together.
