A beautiful golden-hued brew in the pale ale style. The lightest of our beers, it includes a nice hop flavor and all pale malts.

Perhaps those giving low ratings do not have taste buds... this is a very good beer for what it's supposed to be. From a bottle poured into a pint glass. Slightly hazy coloration with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is earthy with citrusy overtones. Grassy taste with minimal palate feel. A great beer for what it is. This is what mill workers should have been drinking in the '70's! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"not a standout as iíve grown accustomed to from Bells, but definitely better than some other lackluster pales. a refreshing floral and grapefruit hop aroma and decent malt balance, with a little sweetness. a tad weak, but very approachable."

Pours a cloudy straw, good carbonation with little head. Malt aroma with a strong skunk smell, reminds me of Old Style. Bitter taste with slight malt and heavy skunk throughout. Sticky malt aftertaste.

Aroma is surprisingly pleasant. Relatively strong fruity aroma with some grainy, bready malts and a bit of spice. Appearance was mostly nondescript; a straw color with a very white, small foam head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing. Appears as though there is a bit of sediment. The taste is very faint citrus, with mild bready, biscuit malts, with a bit of hops. Not much else going on. Palate is very thin and watery. Overall, nothing to see here, especially for Bellís.

pours hazy very pale yellow with a small white head, some retention and lacing. very floral grassiness, almost woodsy, pils and lean pale cereals, some grains - bread crust, sulfur, lemon, cattiness, grass. moderately low carbonation, light body - just a tasd watery, dry and assertive peppery-citrusy finish. american pils-like - yes, i gather itís an ale and they use american hops - anyhow, this brew seems to be misunderstood. good.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking light golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking around the glass but ending up sliding just a bit. The smell had some light bitter citrus hops and a light sweet malt to back up pretty well. The taste was mainly sweet but still had a decent bitter citrus hoppy blend. The palate had a fairly good sessionability about it and had a decent carbonation about it. Overall, this was a pretty good beer that I would have again.
