Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew. koleminer20 (3591) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2014
From notes. On tap at the Eccentric Café on June 13. The pour is a clear, coppery gold with a nice white head and some awesome lacing. The aroma is pretty much as described. Great hops and pine with a light, subtle fruit. The flavor is a little more bitter wit some solid resin tones and a great hoppiness. The fruits tend to fall out a little on the flavor. The mouth feel is thin, but has some great carbonation that helps it feel fuller than it really is. It really makes for a nice coating feeling. The aftertaste is a little dry, and lingeringly hoppy and bitter. I like it.

*This is a review for Bell’s Pale Ale, which RateBeer doesn’t have on this site, for some reason.*
Appearance: For aggressive pourers, beware -- this thing forms a gigantic creamy looking head you wouldn’t believe. It also has some really nice lacing. The beer itself is a cloudy yellow/orange color.
Smell: Very faint... just very slight floral notes as well as spice.
Taste: Much like the smell, but heavier on the spice. The best part about it is the aftertaste. Overall though, it tastes a bit watered down.
Mouthfeel: As I just said, feels a little watered down. Leaves me wanting more, even from a pale ale. As a pale ale, it’s an average one at best.
If someone were to tell me this were Bell’s, I wouldn’t have guessed it, based on some of their others beers I’ve had. Regardless of that, it’s still a solid beer I’d very gladly have again. b3shine (8864) - Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Draft to pint at Eccentric Cafe. Looks good; a transparent vibrant orange with white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid too; fruity and piney. Tastes like it smells with a light but pleasant mouthfeel. A solid APA. fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2013
On draft @ Eccentric Café. Hazy amber with white head. Nice floral aroma. Taste is bitter pine hops and earth. Solid brew. bwa5879 (942) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2013
On tap at eccentric cafe. bold copper pour with thin layer of white head. Scent of citrus (lemon and grapefruit specifically), fresh pineapple and a bit of coconut. With it was a bit stronger though. Average carbonation, mouthfeel slightly oily, clean but tingly finish. Great smooth salty malt flavor mixed with great earthy, floral and pine hops. Mellow and delicious, one of my favorites from Bell’s. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2011
On tap at Eccentric Café. Hazy amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of mild pine, citrus, light floral hops and malt. Taste is floral with pale malt and is somewhat vegetal and moderately bitter.
