3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow-orange in color, but no head, strangely enough. Aroma was of hops and a bit blander than I would have expected. Citricy hop flavor, very straightforward. Could have used more malt balance, expecially in the finish, but a fine beer nonetheless.

Cloudy yellow. Nice thick beige yellow head thick lasting and creamy. Very hoppy with slight malt notes in the body. Not a very strong aroma. Bitters on the back of my tounge. Quite enjoyable. Nothing special though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear goldish color with very little head that goes away really fast. There is a bit of foam on the surface that laces on the way down the glass. The aroma was hoppy and the flavor was very hoppy. I liked it. Overall this is pretty good.

A decent lawnmower beer or something to sip between Expedition and Third Coast Ale. Pale in color with a small head and mildly assertive hop bill. Slightly bitter an da mild malt background. Decent

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-conditioned, so had to avoid the yeasty sediment. very light gold color, nice light hoppy aroma, and a medium hoppy bite. finish is a little bitter, but i like this beer because it's from bell's, and also because the box has a picture of michigan's upper peninsula!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden color with a pillowy white head. Light flowery hoppy aroma. Body is lightly sweet and malty. Crisp dry finish is too musty and bitter. Not a bad lighter beer, and very smooth.

Light yellow hue, lots of yeast in the glass, with a mild nose of lemon and yeast, similar to a lager. Fairly light lemon and pine flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy straw color,small white mildly foamy head.Malty aroma with a pretty decent hop presence,and also fairly wheaty as well.Wheaty taste at first that later turns to a mild malty side that later brings on a nice hoppy taste with a medium bitterness.The after taste is malt hops and bitter with a nice smooth feel.Pretty good brew maybe a little slightly underrated IMO but it does nicely on a hot day like today.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium head and just a tiny bit of lacing on the glass. The aroma was pretty hoppy with a bit of wheat. The taste was not too great. It was a little plain and I just didn't enjoy it. It had some citrus hints but mostly it was hoppy and bready.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: This pours hazy yellow with a white head.
Aroma: The smell is slightly hoppy, with some dustiness to it
Flavor: I was disappointed. As fine a brewer as K'zoo Bells is, this one isn't too good. It had a sour taste.
