Had at Mothlight Asheville. Poured into a pint glass. Bottle says PKGD 12/13

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/1 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Sweet Bready malt with just a tinge of hops.

T- The sweetness continues as the Bready malt makes for a light easygoing flavor with a trace amount of hop bitterness just like in the aroma.

M- A bit on the thin side with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Nothing thrilling but it's not as bad as the score would leave you to believe.

The light golden color is nice in this pale ale. Very pleasant citrus notes with a yeasty bite to it. Minimal hoppiness is pleasant. Overall the flavors of this beer work well together to create one of the lesser known Bells Brews. I highly reccomend.
