3.09/5 rDev -7.8%
A: A cloudy gold color when you pour almost brown like caramel, has almost no head at the top and very minimal lacing.
S: Slight hints of corn, and the malts come through.
T: Nothing special at all with this beer, smells like a normal pilsner and taste like one too, was not impressed with the taste on this one. The taste is bland with corn and malts throughout slight hop notes.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Overall I would have to say this was the worst beer I have had from Bell's, there was nothing good about it.

3.81/5 rDev +13.7%
Pours a slightly hazy, golden/copper color. 5/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hops, hop oils, slight floral hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of earthy malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of citrus (grapefruit?), hint of nuts, hint of roasted malt, and a hint of floral hops. Overall, not complex, but good appearance and session-able.

3.35/5 rDev 0%
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.
A- pours a caramel color with a 2 finger off-white head. Big bubbles and blotches of lacing remain.
S- light caramel, lemon, light spice and pine.
T- pale malts, caramel, lemon, light citrus rind/pine bitterness.
M- medium body and carbonation. Syrupy surprisingly with crisp finish.
O- just a ok beer. A little to golden ale/pilsner ish for me. Maltier than a pilsner but just not like most pales.

3.03/5 rDev -9.6%
A - Pours a dark murky gold with a slowly dissipating head standing two fingers in height. Left a small amount of lacing.
S - Creamed corn and pilsner malt.
T - Creamed corn and pilsner malt followed by a small about of bitter hops that I can't quite put my finger on. A bit of citrus comes through as it sits.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O - Overall, this is probably the worst beer that I have ever had from Bell's. It's a decent beer overall, But definitely Bell's worst.

3.25/5 rDev -3%
12oz bottle, bottling date 1/16/13 poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy orange color with a one-finger head that lingers
S: Aromatic, with strong malt, florals and just a hint of hops
T: Lots of grain, florals up front then an absolutely empty midpalate and a slight hop note on the finish
M: Medium-bodied, again empty midpalate, otherwise decidedly average
O: In general I'm a fan of Bell's but unfortunately this is probably my least favorite beer I've had from them. There's just not a lot of complexity or anything intriguing on the palate.

(Served in a tulip glass)
11/26/12 on bottle
A- The hazy deep orange body supports a beige sticky film and a carbonation of big bubbles pop of the base of the glass.
S- The pale malt has a hint of hair perm with some pine hops in the finish and a light raw silage aroma grows as the beer opens.
T- The pungent bitterness has a sulfur hint and a pils male with a dry hop spice that starts to come through as the beer opens. The pine hint is a bit stronger in the dry finish and has an astringent quality to it.
M- The light mouthfeel is finished with a tight little fizz
O- This beer is light on hops and is a bit too dry in the pale malt flavor. It is kind of blah tasting and a bit boring to drink.
