A refreshing, blond colored pale ale. Bell’s pale ale is made almost exclusively from pale malt. It expresses a spicy floral hop aroma and taste.

As usual, I feel that the bell's lighter ales pale in comparison to their darker ones - I like anything from the Porter on up, but I just do not, after many tasting attempts, care for their lighter stuff. I found this to be bland and 'mushy', that's about all I can say about it.

Draft. Pours nice amber. The palate is full and the taste is a miss. There’s floral and a little citrus. Below average.

Almost clear golden color with white head. Aroma has a clean malt profile, like pilsener malt, ripe oranges and tangerines and a slight dank hop note. Taste starts with the same citrus fruits but is immediately followed by grapefruit pith bitterness. Aftertaste lingers with earthy hops. Medium body and carbonation, quite smooth on the palate. Overall it’s a well made, classic pale ale.

15.09.2016, 12 oz bottle @ home:
Nice fizzy-creamy longlasting, hazy. Aroma is mild grassy, wet leafs, old lawn, minerals, moss, light malts, hay, paper, flowers, weeds. Taste is harsh mineraly, weeds, minerals, bark, medicine, old lawn, paper, flowers, harsh hops, cardboard. Medium to longlasting bitterness, harsh medical mouthfeel. Meh!

Fules (1535) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2016
Közepes, rendkívül tartós hab, borostyán szín, szűretlen. Illata gabonás, enyhén fűszeres, pici citrussal. Íze gabonás, gyümölcsös, citrusos, némi gyanta. Kissé fanyar, száraz, közepesen testes, frissítő sör, közepes szénsavtartalommal és keserűvel. Finom, visszafogott APA.

Pours straw yellow with moderate beige foam and some lacing. Malts dominate the nose with pale and cereal strongest. The hops tend toward grassy. The hops come out stronger on the tongue and more citrusy. Medium body and light fizz, slightly watery texture.

Lilja (3654) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2016
Flaska från Mikkellers webshop. Smak och doft av humle, malt, citrus, gräs, grapefrukt med toner av gräs och örter. Bra maltsötma, fruktig, bra balans och fin beska.

Maakun (7227) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
Tap at Bells. Clear golden with nice white head. Lots of bitter grassy notes, some lemon peel, dry malts and flour, bagels. Just over medium bitter and light sweet. Medium bodied.

Out of a bottle in Michigan. Found the flavor to pretty good. Has a bit of a bitter after taste.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
0,33 bottle from a liquorstore - Beer is grassy, herbal. Flavor has some sweet malts and honeypuffs. Slightly spicy and a bitter finish that does not linger. Quite good.
