COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Looks very much like a Wit. Cloudy pale yellow with a snow white frothy head. Lots of floaties. Aroma is yeasty like a wheat with a hint of citrus. Flavor is also like a Wit yet a very bitter finish that lingers. Somewhat of a different pale and if not for the harsh bitterness, wouldn't be too bad.

Pale malts and yeast provided a bit of soft fruitiness in the nose and taste. Very light bodied and sweet. Faint hops are there as it just sort of "fades away". Very similar to New Belgium Porch Swing.

raymow (1370) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Very pale yellow in color with thousands of little "things" floating all around the glass - I hope that's normal! The aroma is barely there but smells somewhat like a wheat beer. The taste is actually not half bad. In fact, assuming that whatever is floating throughout the beer doesn't kill me, I'd drink it again!

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Looks like a colony of yeast ecploded throughout the beer. Very pale yellow/orange color. No head. Smells like hops and malt. Certainly hoppy, the beer is sharp and slightly citric. Not good.

JMerritt (1931) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2003
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.

Cartoonkhaki (1245) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2003
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.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2003
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.

EddieG (169) - Palos Heights, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2003
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

jtw (1151) - farmington, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2003
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!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2003
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.
