The beer is golden hued with a half inch or so of head. Scents of bread, grain, mild hops. Pretty clean and easy drinking, though a bit bland. Not a lot of hop character here, though perhaps that is intentional. A bready, grainy beer that may be a nice counterbalance to some chili or spicy wings. Middle of the road.

Pours a cooperish color with a nice large lacing head. There is a mild grainy aroma. The taste is the same; very grainy, balanced, strong malt flavors, with hints of hops. Very drinkable and nice body, but rather light in flavor. Overall its a very mild and maltier Pale Ale, nothing to special, but its enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass. Bottled 26 November 2013.

A: Hazy brown-yellow; darkly translucent. Very little head. Gentle lacing.

S: Lightly sour fruit...citrus? Spoiled tropical fruit? Lightly lagery yeast.

T: Hugely disappointing. Bell's is my favourite brewery, but this is a miss. Light, bland, lightly sour, lagerish. I imagine it might be good on a very hot day as a lawnmower beer.

M: Pretty refreshing.

O: I didn't like it :( -- not recommended. Will not have again.
