This is an ok beer...nothing to rave about. Probably would be better as a mid summer beer than mid winter. It poured clear gold with thin white head and not much lace. The scent was more grainy with tinge of citrus. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. Overall...ok

Tasty little number. Quite refreshing. But, alas, it also has Bell's signature lingering bitterness. This over-rated brewery is getting tiresome.

Pours a nice golden color, semi-cloudy. Nice head and very nice lacing all around. Aroma is slightly piney and citrus, with a touch of malt. Taste is well balanced between the hop bitterness and citrus and the malt takes a background position as you drink. Carbonation is good and mouthfeel is pleasant and crisp. A touch of grapefruit with this one, nice !!

Would have liked this to be *just* a little bit hoppier/ more bitter.

Cool label

Only leaving a review because of BA's onerous and unnecessary outlier requirements.
