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

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow with a big creamy white head. Very bubbly. Wheat and bread aroma and flavor. This is pretty close to macro swill. Pretty lacking in hops for a pale ale. Bitter metalic finish.

pale yellow gold color with lots of yeast floaties. hoppy nose. hoppy and soapy to the taste with an active bite from the yeast. the best part of the beer this time is the label.
