2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a straw color, with floating yeast sediment and medium head. Not a ton of aroma to speak of - a bit of grainy/bready malts, and some pilsener hops. The flavor is similarly subdued - a bit of citrus, some bready notes, and a bit of tartness from the yeast and hops. Drinkable enough, but not too much going on, and the bready and sour aspects aren’t great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a nice head with a nice golden color. Smell the hops when you crack the top. Strong flavor of hops. Smooth and tasty tey has bitterness. Overall I really like it. I am new to this so I am not sure what the sediment is in this. But hey, I tastes great.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks jsquire. Pours a clean and effervescent straw gold with one finger of frothy white head. Nose is grassy and very lightly skunky, smells more like a light lager than any kind of pale ale. Kind of grainy/husky and a little earthy. Flavor is very similar, gets pretty sharp. Not making much sense here.....really like color and body with a sharp palate and rough finish. This doesn’t even seem like a Bells beer...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz botte, bottled 1/23/12. Golden color. Lots of sediment particles in the body. Weak, thin bubbly white head, bubbles on the side of the glass. Crisp, light hop flavor. Bit of grass, light soap. Kind of metallic malts. Nice light bitter taste, little zesty sweetness. Bit of sour. Little lace. Crisp, lighter carbonation. Clean dry finish. Light body. Not bad. A bit better than I was expecting. Especially for a bottle nearly a year old.

Lemon yellow color with odd floaty particles and a short lived white head. Nose of faint lemon citrus and short bread cookies. Strong bready malt notes with some stale lemon rind notes. Odd burn on the tongue. Okay pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear pale yellow colour with a lot of foamy white head and lots of visible carbonation and sediment. Smell is a bit hoppy with some grass and a bit of caramel malt. Palate is pretty light and has some active carbonation to help spread the flavour in your mouth. Taste is a bit bitter at first but quickly balanced with some sweetness. Sadly it cuts off after that, but it was good while it lasted.

Cloudy golden color with tons of floating sediment and a small white head. Fruity hops on the nose. Taste is light, fruity, dry and liberally hopped. Crisp, refreshing and highly drinkable. A solid APA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow with a thin head. Bitter and a bit astringent in the aftertaste. Not much aroma, but a not unpleasant grapefruit flavor.
