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.

Breight golden with a nice head. Bright, juicy, hop aroma. Malt is moderately bready with a decent finish. A subdued version of the pale ale, I expect is intended as a gateway beer for bells.

Hazy yellow color with a stable, rocky head. Aroma is butterscotch and a confused hop aroma. Not as solid as some of the other Bellís beers Iíve had, but refreshing. Pleasant bitterness and hop profile in the taste. A different American PA for me.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Rating #400... Rich, malty aroma. Heavy cream, butter and toffee. Hazy golden hue. Small, white, creamy head. Fully lasting with excellent lacing. The flavor is lightly to moderately malty up front with bitterness to match. Nicely acetic and pleasantly bitter on the backside. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A medium-length, bone dry, lightly bitter and acetic finish. Excellent pale ale. More like an American pale ale than the Bells Pale Ale. Iím used to an APA having more of a hop bite like this one.

One of my very favorite bottle-conditioned beers. But why must it be so expensive?

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2003 Gold color, white head, excellent aroma and flavor. It comes off a little fruity at first but finishes crisp, hoppy hoppy joy joy.

nice & thick offering. Alcohol stands out and is a bit overpowering. Hops, hops, hops with some nice roasted notes on the finish. As it warmed the edge came off a bit though.

A fairly average beer in both taste and aroma. Far better than most, but representst the least that Bellís can offer. Try any other of products.
