Bell's Harvest AleBell's Harvest Ale

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Once a year we scour the climbing vines of the local hopyards for the perfect hops to brew our Harvest Ale. Using only Michigan-grown hops, this amber-colored brew finds the delicate balance between hops and malt. It offers a full and robust flavor, yet still manages to be light on the tongue.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: a deep orange/reddish color. a small off white head that faded to just about nothing. pretty good clarity

Smell: fruity, lemons mostly, floral hops, sweet but not over sweet malts.

Taste: the floral hops come in very weakly, leaving room for strong michigan malts that are mostly sweet and intermingle nicely with light citrusy hops and fruity yeast

Mouthfeel: from the taste i'd expect something very refreshing. this came in quite bitter. other than that a good drinkable feel

Overall: this was a good and tasty beer. i expected a little bit more hops but i enjoyed the balance
