Picked up while on vacation in Michigan. I always try to drink local during my travels. This tasted better around the campfire, but at home it just is average. A golden ale that is crisp, with some hoppy bitterness.

A nice light beer. Pours golden cloudy with a small but lasting head. Smells and tastes of fresh clean hops.

The Third Coast Beer gets off to a good start with a cloudy gold with an off-white head that lasts fairly well and leaves great lacing. The aroma is a mix of lager and pale ale with bitter earthy hops standing out. The flavor is dominated with floral hop bitterness and seems more like an ESB. Overall the beer is decent but doesn't seem to fit solidly within a category.

Cloudy and very bitter. Not a fan. Bells usually makes GREAT beers, so maybe Iím being a bit harsh because I had high expectations. Itís their own fault for setting the bar so high with their Porter and Amber Ale. Skip this one, but donít give up on Bells.

12oz bottle thanks Patrick, kind of ho hum a nice clean finishing beer but not what i would consider an APA especially given the rise in popularity of session IPAís that run circles around this type of beer.

The aroma to this beer was nice but I have to say I was expecting a little more.

bottle shared at fest of ales. another pale ale session beer that is making the circuit this spring. mild yellow color with white head. nice hop aroma but it is somewhat on the lighter side. the flavor is quite mild hence the session beer name goes. little different hop flavor not sure which one is used but just different. overall not bad. but not as good as some of the other sessions apaís that are out.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle, great label design, into a nucleated tulip. It poured a clear golden colour with thick and creamy white foam, long-lasting with lots of lace, slight chill haze. Aroma was akin to a fine German Pilsener: grainy, fresh-cut grass, noble hops, faint black pepper and vanilla, hardwood... but WOAH, the flavour was completely unexpected! Way, way more hops bitterness than the aroma indicated, smooth and resiny but very strong, strong citrusy hops flavour too, not entirely grapefruit, with a crisp, crackery malt body underneath. A subtle, enjoyable mineral water chalkiness, with some faint tea like tannins, too. Light-medium body, intense carbonation which splashed it all around nicely. A smooth, eminently well-balanced session beer. Interesting and remarkably delicious. I actually drank it several nights ago, but I keep thinking about it. Canít wait to buy more.
