Appearance - Pours a golden color and is slightly cloudy. Yeast particles float throughout the glass. A thin, off-white head sat atop the glass. Some lacing remained around the glass.
Aroma - Reminded me of being drinking a SN Pale Ale while playing a round of golf in late spring/early summer. However, the beer does not compare to SN Pale Ale. The smell brought undertones of malt, floral hops, and a little bit of spiciness.
Taste - Similar to the smell; malts and spice with a hint of floral hop flavors in the background.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Some bitterness at the end from the hops, but not strong.
Overall - A nice, refreshing pale ale. A decently crafted brew. The appearance was not great, but flavors were there and what I was expecting to get out of the beer. I still prefer the classics like Dale's Pale Ale and SN Pale Ale, but glad I tried this one from Bells.

A nice Pale Ale by Bell's. Beautiful light golden color with a nice barley, malt smell. Just the right amount of carbonation to leave a slight tingle on your tongue. Taste lingers a little on your tongue which is a pleasant bread flavor without feeling you feeling over stuffed. Overall a great "light beer."

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.

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.
