12 oz bottle. Bottled 03/29/13. (Macadoodles) Branson, MO.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Sweetish fruity hops and mild bitterness in the aroma. Nice!
Very tasty flavour. Piny and resiny hops and moderate bitterness. Malty balance. Good one!

My first impression is that the taste is good, with bits of citrus. Then the finish is very hoppy and bitter - it gets worse as time goes on. It’s interesting but I wouldn’t want to have another.

Before even pouring this beer, I smelled the skunkiness coming from the bottle, and the aroma, once in the glass, is a blend of skunk, dough yeast, and a hint of floral hops; however, it looks very pleasing in the glass due to the hazy golden color with both a large white head and lots of dark, fine-grain sediment floating throughout. The taste is quite bitter upfront, but that fades quickly to let the slight sweetness and touch of sourness become apparent. Finally, the mouthfeel is a fairly nice complement to the flavor due to the medium body, average carbonation, slightly sticky texture, and a slightly bitter finish.

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 I’m being a bit harsh because I had high expectations. It’s their own fault for setting the bar so high with their Porter and Amber Ale. Skip this one, but don’t 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 IPA’s that run circles around this type of beer.
