Pours out a straw yellow with a huge foamy white head that leaves a pretty decent amount of lacing. Also has some off-white floaters.
Pretty much only grassy straw and some bitter hops. Not bad but not a whole lot to look forward to in the first drink...
Like the smell, not a whole lot going on but grass and hops. Flavor is actually pretty full but not great. Also has a bit of a musky off taste like a pilsner gone bad. Finishes with a long lingering bitterness.
Nice carbonation and medium body with no residue.
Not a fan and had a hard time finishing this one.
I've had quite a few different brews from Bell's and have not had anything approaching this poor. I have to imagine that I picked up a badly handled bottle.

Real Time review: Drinking this right now. A lot of hype where I live about this brewery. Just poured the bottle into my trusty Old Style pint glass. Nothing mind blowing. Pours a 1" foamy head (quickly dissipating) with a typical golden lager color. Has a little bit of sweetness to it. Very heavy and distinctive aftertaste I can't pinpoint. Just finished the glass: Overall it's good, but not great.

For what it is, it’s enjoyable. This pours a clear, light straw color. Light aroma, some bready and lemony notes. Crisply flavored with a touch of breadiness and a quick finish. Makes me burp—take that for what it’s worth—but with no nasty aftereffects.
