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.

Pretty golden color. Grapey and a little bitter. Hoppy.

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.

Clear and golden with slight off-white head. Aroma is sweet, with a bit of grapefruit. Flavor is medium grapefruit, kind of flat, not sweet.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Peachy gold colored. Nose is a bit sweet, but actually smells a bit Bud-ish. Enjoyed the flavor more than expected, was peach and surprisingly, a mite vinous with a toasty finish. Creamy and smooth. Not bad at all.

Bells sets such a high standard for itself that a decent beer by anyone elseís standard is a disappointment for bells. Very cloudy, bready aroma and flavor with a bit of hops. Not bad but doesnít compare to their better brews.

I wasnít overly impressed by this one. Perhaps itís because itís a Bellís beer, and I expect a lot from them, but this was disappointing. The aroma is hop-dominate, but very faint. Flavor is quite hoppy and sort of unbalanced. Unfortunately, it didnít do much for me.

Had this on tap at the brewery. Light, but not clear. A true golden cloudy look, with a small but lasting head. Good nose with fresh clean hops. The fresh hops also dominate the taste.

This was an alright bells. Its pretty clear with a crisp bite to it. I kinda like more hops though. I think Iíll stick with Their Oberon in the summer, Two hearted in the winter, and the Pale ale in between. Its still worth trying though.
