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

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.

P- Als of hampden

A- a hazy dark wheat color with yeast suspended throughout. No head and no lacing so I was leary.

S- honey and caramel malts but it has the smell of a lager rather than a pale ale. I though I bought a pale ale.

F- a skunk like flavor in the mouth. the malts taste overbearing and sour. I don't get the caramel or any other flavor that comes through.

M- light bodied and carbonated as well as gassy. It bubbles all the way down like champagne with sour apple malt.

D-Eh....I could do worse but could be much better. less than average beer and I wont buy it again. I love Bells but I think they missed the mark with this one unless they were going for a Budweiser like brew.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with appealing label art and branded pry-off pressure cap acquired at Zipp's Liquor in Minneapolis, MN for $1.79 and served into a stem-tulip. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given the brewery. 5.2% ABV confirmed. Packaged 07/29/13. Reviewed as a pale ale because of the name, though the label description calls it a blond ale.

Served cold - straight from the fridge - and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a one finger wide head of white colour. Disappointingly thin. Lacks creaminess and frothiness. Consistency is smooth. Complexion is decent; not particularly soft or supple. Head retention is average - about 2 minutes. Little lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a hazy nontransparent translucent mango colour. Sort of a reddish orange - kind of hard to pin down. Average vibrance. No floating yeast particles are visible.

Overall, it looks a bit off for a pale ale. Not as light or clear as I'd expect.

Sm: Honey, caramel, pale malts, fruity tones (mainly mango and vague tropical character), a hint of graham cracker, clean yeast, sweet bready malts, and some doughiness from the yeast. Not as hop-forward as you'd expect (and want) in a pale ale.

I'm looking forward to trying it, but it's far from unique or special. I'm a bit concerned at this point.

No alcohol or spices are detectable. A clean inoffensive aroma of average strength.

T: Mango fruit, light pine, and some biting grapefruit citrus notes comprise the bulk of the hop profile. Pale malts, some caramalt, and a light doughy character provide the simple foundation. Lightly resinous. Hints of lime. Decently balanced, with a cohesive but not gestalt build.senses at different points in the structure. The bitterness/sweetness is off, but in different Very simple, lacking complexity, subtlety, nuance, and intricacy.

The doughy yeast character doesn't fit the clean feel you'd want in a good pale. There's even some (admittedly light) alcohol presence here too.

Below average depth and duration of flavour. Average intensity of flavour.

Decently put together, but ultimately quite underwhelming. I'm not a big fan and I'm not sure what they're going for with this one.

Mf: Fairly clean. Crisp, smooth, and wet. Too filling for a pale ale. A bit too heavy on the palate, with too full a body. Doesn't suit the flavour profile or the style all that well. Unrefreshing. Overcarbonated.

Not oily, astringent, harsh, gushed, hot, rough, or boozy.

Dr: Nowhere near as drinkable as a pale ought to be, but fairly downable. I'm glad I just got a single; I wouldn't want another and wouldn't recommend this to friends. A simple swing and a miss from Bell's. Very average.

A- Light orange body with a fair amount of unfiltered particles. Poured a thick 2 finger head. Nice lacing.
S- Mainly bready. Super slight touch of citrus and malts.
T- Taste threw me a little. Much sweeter than the nose. Bread, lemony citrus, light orange, and a touch of caramel. Almost sour at times.
M- Medium body. On the creamy side. Dry finish with a strange lightly sour bitterness.
O- This was ok to me. BMC drinkers would probably love it. In fact, it would probably be a good bridge into craft beer.

Bought 1/2bbl for $69 with a two week old kegging date, served in Imperial pint glasses.

Had some trouble with my opinion on this beer so I held back an extra day with a fresh palate and reread the other reviews. Some quotes from them: "mild, bland, watery, leaning toward English Ale style, not enough hops, metallic, strong grain taste, odd yeast/malt tones from> lager? wheat?". All these are valid I think, but not necessarily negative. Some said it was in inoffensive session beer and that is I think its strongest point, IMHO. I looked at other Pale Ales and find that the ones I like best are either hop forward versions or real British style milds, so this one really misses all the points I look for in my Pale ales. But I like it anyway.

I bet I would not like this at all in the bottle, I can tell it is too mild for this IPA guy. What I will do later today is run some through my "Randall" glass after I pick up a few pouches of fresh hops from the store to see where that takes this beer. At @42IBU's (accd to one source), but I bet a bump to 55 or so would really rock this beer into my flavor zone.

In any case, I do recommend you try this beer on draft when you can, and steer clear of any stronger hop flavored beers before you do as it will poison your opinion on it.

12oz Bottle from Wegmans Dewitt NY for $2

Appearance - Hazy gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, grass, lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and hops. There is also some lemon, grass, and some hay/straw.

Overall - Not really a APA, more of a helles or some type of oktoberfest beer. Not what I was expecting. It's an okay beer, just a little boring.

Looking into the short history of American Pale Ale, it seems that we have come a long way. What was once balanced is now malty; as our palates are shifting acutely toward the hops.But this beer ignores all that and stays true to those original American Pale Ales.

As the Midwestern Pale Ale pours it does so with a frothy intertwine of its malty body and its airy head that soon separates. Light in its hazy golden color, the beer trails with lasting retention and broken laces as the beer fades.

Its aromatics align with malty notes of fresh baking bread, light honey and thin caramel. As a skirt of hops slowly overtakes the sweeter notes, it casts a net of citrus and pine. Light yeasty notes of bread dough waft about and bleed into the beer's hoppy and malty scent.

To taste, the beer is malty, but only semi-sweet. Somewhat like the starchiness of pasta and bread- only the thin honey and caramel taste supports the strong malt structure. But the middle palate brings about the hops! Bright in its citrusy tone, grapefruit, orange zest and lime peels rise to not only balance the sweetness but ushers in a quick and crisp finish of pine shavings and light resinous bitterness.

Its medium-light body is due to its semi-dry body being lifted by carbonation and being equalized by protien-starch richness that has little taste. But its starchy middle reduces to a crisp and clean finish of mild warmth and peppery bite.

The beer's enjoyable qualities are high as its comfortable sweetness is excited by earthy and citrusy hops. Working in tandem in its balance, the beer proves to be low in offense and subtle in its appreciation. I say: "Free Midwestern Pale Ale!"

Pours hazy yellowish orange with strong fluffy white head. Smell seems off, with some citrus, sweet honey, funkyness. Very little hop influence in the flavor and aroma. A bit sweet, some honey, wheaty flavors, seems slight off, a little yeast, hay. Low to medium carbonation, light to medium mouthfeel. A bit of a miss here by Bell's.

This pours golden with an orange blush on it. It has quite a bit of sediment and it's very cloudy. The head is fat and off white and fell slowly to a ring and film on top. Left soapy lace. Nose is citrus and a sweet malt. The citrus is faded a bit but it's orange peel and stone fruits. The malt is biscuit and honey on the nose. The taste is muddled. It's got a body that is a bit thick and it travels the palate slowly because of that. It's not crisp or light. The carbonation is prickly and that's a good thing and adds to the drinkability. The fruits combine for an all over citric taste that has a bit of pith and hop floral . The cracker malt starts out strong but then that taste flattens out in the drink and there's hardly any finish. Spice doesn't come forward until mid glass and by then there is a bit of hop oil to add to the slow body. Has a some herbal in the finish. It's just ok.

Poured a hazy copper hue with a two finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light piney hop and soft sweetness.

The taste consisted of a moderate hop spice, offering notes of pine and grass, atop a light grainy pale malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a decent pale ale. Certainly easy enough to drink.

Bell's Midwestern Pale Ale is indeed "reminiscent of the golden fields at harvest" (who knew these guys were poets as well as brewers?!). Its clear, dazzling complexion is sullied only slightly by bottle sediment, the dotting of which is so tiny as to look like nothing more than dust particles. Not much head remains in the glass - most of it looks like it stuck to the glass.

You'd probably expect a Pale Ale from Bell's to be bursting with hoppiness but while this aroma is slightly tinged 'green' it's actually the wholesome, heavenly scent of malted barley that prevails. The beer has a 'bakery-fresh' smell that reminds one of the comforts of warm, fresh bread.

Some styles have flavours that change more often than people do their socks - not Pale Ales. Beers like this are as steady as a beating drum. From aroma to flavour, from the first sip to the last, cold to warm, nothing changes. There's no surprises. This has a hearty maltiness that tastes of grain and bread. Nothing less, nothing more.

Hops are not, however, without any influence. The finish is not sweet, and certainly not bitter either, but cut short by something more than just stiff water minerals. The aftertaste has a trace of herbal leafiness that is very faint and reminiscent of a weakly steeped chamomile tea.

When treading water you lift yourself up by pushing the water down; whereas many microbreweries promote themselves by conceitedly contrasting their products to those of commercial breweries - typically centering on extreme offerings aimed exclusively at the beer geek fringes - Bells is confident to also let their simple, workaday beers speak for themselves.

Although certainly one of the first breweries to re-write the rules, Bells has also won out, as their Midwestern Pale Ale proudly demonstrates, by beating the big guys at their own game. The fact that some brewers overlook is that craft beer doesn't have to be big, different, or rare - lowest-common-denominator beer should be good too. And this is definitely that.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Packaged on 10/03/13.

A: Pours a hazy golden allowing just a bit of visibility. A white head sits on top of the brew. Lots of tiny bubbles can be seen rising to the surface. Leaves some spots of lacing.

S: Malt forward aroma from the barley in this one. A good amount of grain with a emanating sweetness. Hops are difficult to find.

T: Quite a malty pale ale. Starts with a heavy dose of malt that transitions into a sweetness. A splurge of hops hits you once you swallow bittering the back end.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Leaves a touch of stickiness after you swallow.

Overall not a very impressive beer but it would be a good transition from macro brews. Glad I got a single bottle.

My local, in-person trader, tone77, dropped this off for me and I could not be happier! It gives me a chance to riff on a number of subjects, not the least of which being the American Midwest.

First, let's see what his eminence, Larry Bell, has to say - From the Bottle: "A blond ale reminiscent of the golden fields at harvest - made with Michigan-grown barley and a delicious blend of pale malts with a distinctive spicy, floral aroma and taste. We invite you to reap what we've sown." The label depicts a "Painting of Bell's Brewery Farm [in] Shepherd, MI.

I love the midwest! It is my last bastion of hope in a dying country which I defended until retirement from the U.S. Navy. We (surprisingly) do not have much of a naval presence in the midwest, hence my infrequent visitation, but every time that I have been, I wanted to stay. I enjoy the down-to-earth attitudes which convey a simple, no-frills mentality. The people are polite, but blunt in that if they do not like you or disagree, they will tell you so without beating around the bush. Back east, we tend to be blunt and impolite, leading to fisticuffs, while out west, I am not sure that people have opinions, just random thoughts in generalities. Some of my best bumper has come from the midwest, including The Hoosiette, The Old Lady, Doll Face, and Cowgirl. I am planning a joint 21st/50th birthday party with Val Midwest to be held in her hometown of Lincoln, NE on 28 Feb 2015 and people are welcome to join us. When I finally untether the blimp of PA, I am on a beeline to the midwest, never to be heard from again. Onward!

I initially netted just over a finger of dense, tawny head with good retention, but as I noodled around in my usual inimitable fashion, it slowly fell, leaving dense, sticky lacing in its wake. Color was a slightly hazy honey-yellow (SRM = > 7 < 9). Nose had a distinctive spiciness, almost like pepper, definitely from the hops. Mouthfeel was silky smooth, notable in the style when so many try to emulate a hoppy AIPA. The taste was evocative of midwestern ladies' hips, lips and fingertips - tangy with an earthiness that can only be developed on the farm. Yum. Ah, languorous nights in coupling like freight cars ... Big, corn-fed gals who would purr like cats and give off heat like human generators. Thankfully, no corn was evident in this beer, but the hops were definitely there in force. The finish was minty, almost tea-like in its mellowness, very much peppermint and spearmint and I was suddenly rendered very sleepy. May I wake up in a barn or atop a haystack reprising Cowgirl's action.

Poured from a bottle (bottled on 8/01/2013) into a pint glass.

A rather thin, yet stable white foam head sat on top of a hazy, dark gold body.

The aroma was dominated by the malts with a front of a floral-herbal blend.

The grains stood out in the taste. A good hit of citrus in the aftertaste.

Overall: Not bad. Interesting flavor balance. The relatively light body makes this a great APA to throw back on a sunny afternoon.

Bottom Line: Good brew, nothing to write home about though.

S-weeds and herbal hops. Smells aged, though it isn't. Good strength

T-grains with a slight hint of aged hops, almost weedy. Slight bitterness. Matching after-taste. The flavors are strong but not really good. This tastes almost amateur.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a semi dry finish

O-tastes like a microbrew pale ale. Doesn't taste like what Bells should be making. Very boring. Won't get again.

A: Dense orange with a strong show of effervesce. Whipped, frothy light tan head remains strong throughout. Lacing is generous.

S: Midwest pale shows an almost midwest flair of fresh barley, dried corn, green corn ears, and pilsner malting.

T: Flavor was bready, nobel hop flowers, faint citrus-straw, light floral lacing on the tongue. Semi-dry citrus flower, hint of stemmy briary, earthy grapes, sweet flashes of grains.

M: Mouthful was bready, lightly powdery pils malting on the tongue. Frothy textured, good carbonation.

O: Overall there is something earthy and midwest, bready, and unique about the hopping here that gives this a midwest feel. Very soothing, laid back, midwest style. A refreshing breaking from the west coast assualt of hops. solid good.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a conical pint glass

A - It is pale yellow and hazy. It is topped with about two inches of off-white head.

S - I get a lot of malt. I was hoping for a little hops. It is sweet caramel and a little grainy.

T - Again, all malt. No hops to liven it up.

M - Moderate.

O - Boring. I have had some great pale ales this summer and was hoping for another. This was a big swing and a miss. I would much rather drink Oberon all day.

Poured into DFH signature glass; translucent yellow-orange with a thin white head that leaves sticky fine lacing as it fades into a nice ring of foam with lively bubbles feeding it.
Smells of crackery toasted malt, grainy, bit of diacetyl, metallic, slight hint of crisp hops.
Taste is crackery-sweet malt, toasted grain, slight crisp generic hop flavor and a slightly odd flat bitterness.
Mouthfeel is thin and lightly carbonated.
Overall, this is a bit boring. They could have upped the hops considerably without going too bitter, and it would have really expanded the flavor of this one. The simplicity of this beer would make it a good bridge for macro drinkers working their way into craft, though.
It's that type of session beer that you'd drink during a party, when you don't want to have to think about what you're drinking, but still want to drink something palatable.

Purchased today in my ongoing effort to try more beers by Bell's. Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a shaker pint glass. Bottled on "07/08/13."

Pours an amber golden color that's actually pretty hazy, as well as filled with light bubbles overall. A fizzy off-white head about a half finger tall lazily dies down to about nothing but a ring at the top of the glass. The carbonation goes pretty quickly as well. Not much lacing or viscosity on this. A simple, golden pale ale. Nothing more, nothing less.

Smells of cracked barley flavors, dirty straw, light malted bitterness, and some floral hops at the finish. Ridiculously simple, almost to the point of feeling empty. Not fruity or sweet, or complex by any means. Only cracked toasted barley and light earthiness. I suppose this is supposed to be as simple as the style gets, but knowing its potential (as well as, *ahem*, Bell's potential), it could use some pruning.

The flavor is awash with bittered cracked grainy flavors, light earthy hops, and slight notes of stale stonefruit. Nothing more comes in, other than a plain, barley predominant flavor that reminds me of stale toast and dry straw. There's a bit of a sweetness at the finish, but it doesn't do much else. Slightly thin in feel, and definitely not creamy or carbonated enough. Definitely simple, but not the most pleasing thing to sip on.

Not much to say about this other than the fact that this is as basic as an APA can get. I do wish it didn't taste so barley forward and faded in terms of providing more complexity to the choppy bitterness, but it is what it is. I passed it over to someone else, but this could hit the spot if I needed something of its type. When, I've no clue, but it shall exist for that special point in time.

12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date 06/10/2013 printed on the label. About as fresh as I could hope for. Scored this during a recent trip to Cedar Rapids at Benz Beverage Depot.

Poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.

A - Slightly aggressive pour only conjures one finger of doughy off-white head that settles down quickly. Body is a light bright orange color when held to the light with tons of tiny specks of yeast sediment floating around. I happen to enjoy the appearance of yeast sediment, so I think it looks rather nice.

S - Smell is more subdued. A bit of fresh juicy peach, apricot, corn, and some earthy grains and malts.

T - Taste follows suit: lightly bitter citric hop presence, grainy barley & malt backbone, and crisp carbonation.

M - Feel is crisp and light-bodied, with a dry bitterness lingering on the palate. Very ideal.

Overall, a delicious summer beer, easy drinking and highly sessionable with a nice 5.20% abv. The label identifies itself as a blonde ale, but it tastes like the ideal American pale ale to me. Nothing extraordinary or groundbreaking, but a solid, well-made Michigan beer. An offering from Bell's I would gladly drink again and again.

Poured into a tulip for review. Appears a somewhat cloudy yellow. Lacing clings to the glass alright. Smells of wheat crackers, hay, and some citrus hops - maybe Cascade. Tastes sweet upfront with a tinge of bitterness and some citrus hops towards the back end. Feels medium with decent carbonation. Overall, slighty above average for a pale ale these days. This is definitely refreshing, just not a great representative of the style for craft beer.
