This was a "throw in," but Raul wishes that it was a throw out. See what Raul did there? I'm tellin' ya, growin' up in tha hood does no harm! This thang had no redeeming qualities. None. Nasty nasty and ghetto ghetto.

Two words: drain pour.

Goodnight.

Just wasted $9.99 on a sixer of this filth. Pours a hazy golden with nice white head. Smells like Oberon - macro hybrid with a hint of wonderbread and grass. No hops present at all. This is NOT a pale ale of any sort. It's a bland, blonde lager. Decent mouthfeel and carbonation. Offensively dry bitterness upfront and aftertaste. Tastes like I just chewed a Tylenol. Come on Bells. You can do much better than this. Scrap this brew and get back to work making the goods. I'd never buy this one again. The remaining 5 beers in my fridge will probably be consumed by unfavorable house guests.

Too much hop in this one for me, but then again, this is a style I'm not a huge fan of; this is Bell's first loser in my book after three marvelous offerings (Oberon, Two Hearted Ale, and Mercury, respectively).
