look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Draft at The Cambridge in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a clear pale gold color with a frothy two finger white foam head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring.  Very nice retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Visible carbonation bubbling up.

Grassy floral hop aroma with ale malt and a slight adjunct presence.  Some grass, straw and light fruit with slightly earthy, grassy, saaz like hops.  There's also some pilsner malts apple and pear.  Decent but nothing special about the nose.

Medium bodied wih a crisp hop bite that lingers over the pale malt and sweet fruit notes into a dry finish.  Bitter and dry with grass, straw and subtle pine needle followed by bread, biscuit, apple and pear.  There's also a weird adjunct like metallic graininess that I can't put my finger on which lingers after the finish.  Crisp and refreshing with nice dryness but a weird and unpleasant aftertaste.

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza for their Bell's Tap Takeover.

Pours a golden pale straw yellow, with a half inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells fairly floral and piney, with some "sweaty" yeast aromas.

This ones tastes pretty good, but there is sort of a sweaty sock flavor feel to this one, from the yeast, I'm guessing. Slightly bready, with some pine, floral, and cat pissy flavors. Not all that bitter, doesn't linger.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel and fairly drinkable. There's a medium amount of carbonation.

Not bad, but there seems to be some off flavors here.

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

A- Slightly hazy golden. Head is small but it lasts fairly well.
S- Aroma is sweet, slightly floral. A good balance of hops and malt on the nose, though somewhat mild.
T- Fairly sweet up front. It's got a sweet crackery flavor all the way through, though a floral and slightly citrusy hop carry through.
M- Medium body, fairl substantive for style. Carbonation in medium.
O- A decent easy drinking lager. It's got a bit more than your standard pale lager. It's worth a try.

A- Very nice light pale copper amber color. White as white head. Solid lacing.

S- Hop alert. Duh. It's dry hopped so of course. There is a really nice floral hop aroma from this beer. It really overpowers everything else, but there is nothing wrong with that.

T- Tastes very hoppy. A residual malt sweetness helps balance a little bit. Very very clean tasting beer.

M- Crisp is the best way to describe it.

O-Pretty nice beer here. Get it if you have the chance.

Pours a bright yellow with a small white fizzy head. Looks a lot like most lagers.

Smells of grassy/piney hops with a little cracker.

Tastes is unique. Definitely has a little graham cracker like crispness, but also loads of grassy hops with a little pineyness as well.

Mouthfeel is a little heavy for a lager with good high carbonation level.

Always glad to try to a new style and I think Bell's hit their mark here, but I wasn't the biggest fan. The hops were a bit too bitter with not enough malt support and the alcohol was a bit too present for its ABV. Solid brew and definitely recommended for something unique, but not my favorite.

Enjoyed at the brewery's tasting room. A hoppy lager, very good for its style. Dry hopped. A nice lawn mower beer, and one that would replace others drunk in mowing days gone by. Very good drinkability, and one that would transition many a macro drinker who does not realize he likes hops. Medium mouthfeel.
