A- The clearest yellow gold colored beer I have ever seen. It's amazing really. A beautiful pillow of white rocky frothy head with lacing still in the glass 30 minutes after i drank it.

S- It has that lager smell. I think many lagers all have that same unmistakable unnamable scent. I can't describe it other than a little corney. A sweet malt smell and light hop aroma arise.

T-Taste is well balanced between earthy hops and a pilsen malt.

M-Super drinkable. A 6 pack of this in the summer on a hot day with a buddy by the lake... fo sho.

O-Pretty nice offering from bell's

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This cloudy, golden ale pours with some sediment, but the crisp, lagery aroma is appealing enough.

Taste is full, hinting at grains (barley, wheat) and just enough of a hop bite to make this a formidable and ideal session ale. Nothing truly outstanding, but overall quite an enjoyable brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a small head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of pine with a bit of citrus and fresh grain.

T: Taste of fresh grain with a mild sweetness and bit of citrus. Has a nice bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly light body, crisp smooth and refreshing. Nice balance.

O: Easy drinker. This has too much flavor and character to be a blonde ale. This probably closer to a pale ale.
