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
