Poured from a 5-liter mini-keg into a standard pint glass.
A - Depends on how you look at it. In a lighted area, it appears an amberish orange. Hold it directly up to the light and it is a murky yellow. So it is quite a bit more appetizing if you don't hold it directly up to any light source. A hard pour produces a nice thick two finger off-white head that disappears pretty quickly leaving only a ring of bubbles around the glass that leaves a slight lace.
S - Orange rinds, biscuits, fresh hops, malts, and a hint of lemon.
T - The orange taste is immediate. Give it a couple seconds and the hops and malts come through, followed by that hint of lemon.
M - A little thin with a bit too much carbonation for a pale ale. Overall, not too bad, but certainly not remarkable.
D - Very nice! Good ABV, not too strong but not weak by any means. Definitely refreshing and a great summer beer!
Serving type: on-tap

I had this beer a few years ago at a cool little cafe in ohiopyle after a day of rafting and/or hiking. it hit the spot on a hot day. it is refreshing and light but with subtle hoppiness that lets you know its a bell's beer. thats all i remember about this brew but will revisit it this summer. i like pretty much all bell's beers.
