3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin pale extremely effervescent pour, with a nice towering white head, thatís fading a little. Aroma of yeast, chalkboard, and hops. Very even and balanced flavor profile, with a nice finish of hops. Unfortunately my palate is a little tired and all of the nuances are lost, but this is still a top quality pale. My kind, with an even balance. Fruity, with a finish of apples. Dry smack and an aged fruit aftertaste. Some say it lacks depth, but I disagree. My neighboors suck. Anyway, this is my kind of pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow-cloudy with slight hops and cooked pinto beans. Sweet hops with touch of lemon. This one borders a witbier. Floral aftertaste that is a bit weak. Good taste but lacks body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a yellow with a nice, very creamy head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Flavors of pine, spice and some lemon with a not over the top bitter finish. Great beer to enjoy at the UW Terrace outside on an early spring day.

12 oz bottle. Yellow with a nice thick white head, floaties. Malty fruity aroma, with a touch of hop. Nice malty brew with a pleasant hop flavor and a touch of bitterness. Hoppy finish. Nice mouth feel.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pilsy, urinary aroma. Flavor is clean golden malt with some spicy hops. Wheat, pickles, and banana round out the flavor bill, running into a medium body. Slightly above average, but not what Iíd expect from Bells. A crisp early summer beer, but not a favorite.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blond/gold/orange pour, much thicker than anticipated. Unfilitered, little floaties everywhere. Creamy thick white head. So far so good. Citrus bitterness throughout with a bitter dry finish. Very good, light and drinkable yet somehow thick and substantial. I know that doesnít make sense. Leaves me wondering what this would be like with more malts and alcohol, probably not the same beer or style of beer.

Pours a golden color, small white head, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of lemons and other citrus fruits. Flavor is crisp, some floral flavor ontop of the hops, lots of malt for an APA. A very nice apa.
