3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewery. The pour is a solid orange. The aroma is mild. The taste a little on the bitter side, and has a stronger lager taste. Easy drinking beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Eccentric Café, Kalamazoo. Hazy straw orange-brown body, thin cream head. Light toasty nose with grapefruit and berries. Sweet, cerealy body with berries and light grassiness, reminiscent of Christmas Ale but lighter. Quaffable.

Well, it looks very much like a pale ale, on the darker orange/amber end of the spectrum in color, wit an off-white head. The aroma is clean, with grains and a touch of hops and light caramel. The flavor is lackluster... muted in all respects. I’m slightly disappointed after so many great surprises by Bell’s today. It feels like the hops should be stronger, although it still meets the requirements of the style. A touch of bitterness and a bite of odd-flavored hops show up in an English-style finish. Hmm. It must be a strange hop variety. Still, good!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to pint at Eccentric Cafe. Looks good for the style; a transparent vibrant orange with white lacing. Smells somewhat hoppy with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, only better, with floral and pine hop notes. Solid on the palate. Not bad.

Had this poured on draft at Bells tap room. Dark orange pour. Sticky off white head. Very flowery and fruity. My wheelhouse and as good as a pale ale gets

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Eccentric. Body is a clear good with nice aromas of mango and peaches with a little hay. Flavor is thin but holds a lot of peach fruitiness. Very clean while still holding that nice fruity edge.

Floral and citrusy, like the other pale ale I tried with it as it warmed the maltiness took over int he wrong way for me.
