Got this one sent to me from Indra. Thanks! This one poured into the glass a clear bright golden color and then the yeast came at the end and muddied it. It must be bottle conditioned! Tall sticky head that fell rather quickly but stuck tenaciously to the sides of the glass, leaving blotter patterns all the way down. The aroma has a yeasty breadyness to it. The first part of my tongue to respond were the sides, caused by the slightly bitter aspect of the brew, then that was washed back for some mildly sweet maltiness before fading into a nice dry finish. This is another worthy addition to the other Bellís I have enjoyed and would be a good one to seek out if the more bitter, bigger IPAís just arenít your thing.

Hazy pale orange brew, missing head. Sweet marcipan nose and also taste. Intense crushed grain nose. Apricot intervalls leading into a hoppy end.

Fluffy white head on a cloudy orange body. Fresh aroma of grain and fruit. Yeast, grain, hay and fruit in the flavor with wheaty tones and a bit of bitterness. A fresh but not very interesting beer. Thanks to Ivan (JensenTaster) for the trade!

Smells like fresh cracked barley malt grains - interesting, but Iím not sure if it is all that good. Hazy orange color and a soft foamy head - looks like a hefewiezen! Marzipan, sweet malt taste with a hint of fruity apricots and maybe apples. Late arriving dry grassy bitter, but not really hoppy. Thickish body but an odd taste and balance. Is this a bad sample? If not, Iím quite dissappointed from Bells on this one...

This has to be the palest Pale Ale I have ever seen. Pours very cloudy wheat color with a nice head. Aroma is earth and fruity. Taste is floral hops along with some wheat, dust and a weird maltiness. Not my fav Bells so Iíll do the Amber next.

(on bottle)Very blond pale ale here, a bit to the wheatbeer-ish side and therefor not my game. Has loads of yeast, fruit and just a hint of caramel to the nose. Comes through very aromo-hopped in the finish. Summerale, very much.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a thick frothy white head. Very dull, mildly hoppy, mildly caramel malty, aroma with a touch of citrus. Body starts with a light honey sweetness and a peppery hop finish. Overall this is a little bland and not quite what I expect from Bells, but a decent APA nonetheless. Thanks atpayne!

A good, easy drinking beer. Light yellow in color with extensive and prolific lacing. Great mouthfeel and good finish.
