I had this beer a few years ago at a cool little cafe in ohiopyle after a day of rafting and/or hiking. it hit the spot on a hot day. it is refreshing and light but with subtle hoppiness that lets you know its a bell's beer. thats all i remember about this brew but will revisit it this summer. i like pretty much all bell's beers.
