    not a standout as i've grown accustomed to from Bells, but definitely better than some other lackluster pales. a refreshing floral and grapefruit hop aroma and decent malt balance, with a little sweetness. a tad weak, but very approachable.

    June 2010 - Okay, I guess this is Bells target beer for the macro crowd. Pale golden color, little head. It tastes like a lager...with a very mild citrus finish. Ordered while out on business...I’d never pay for it out of mine own pocketses.

    Light honey color with a bright white head. Some sediment floating through the glass. An honest head and head retention. Mostly average in appearance. Nice little floral hop aroma at first with the smell. Some grapefruit with some spice. A bit of orange peel in there also. Well balanced and smells nice. A smidge of biscuit or breadiness shows itself as the beer warms. The taste was of grapefruit and spice. Nice bit of hop bitterness dancing on the taste buds. Dry wheat in the background also. Medium/thin mouthfeel. Crisp and refreshing. Blankets the tongue and throat well. Finishes a bit dryer than I was expecting. I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. It's really pretty good. Easily drinkable and would be real nice on Spring and Summer days. I'll give this a second go round no problem.

    Bottled (from Cracked Kettle). Slightly hazy golden colour with a mediumsized fluffy head that settles into a thin foam. Slight lacing as well. Aroma is fruity and floral hops with some bready malts as well as mild herbal notes. Flavour is quite similar with a rather big dry hoppyness striking in the finish.

    This beer pours a dark yellow almost gold colro with a big white head. Aroma is floral, hoppy, what, and grass. Bitter flavor with hops and fruit towards the end. A pretty good beer.

    Very cloudy. Fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Nice Aroma. The flavor is full and very tasty. First time trying this brewery and will try more of their brews. Will have again.

    Light golden color with a thin white head. Some sediment, like with most Bells beers. Pretty smooth taste and mouthfeel, with a crisp, slightly bitter finish.

    Pale yellow pour with considerable flocculation and a bubbly white head. Earthy, grainy nose. Full, smooth mouthfeel. Reserved malt flavors with light hop-bitterness. An unassuming, mildly-flavored, easy-drinking session beer. MUSIC: 'The Upper Peninsula' by Sufjan Stevens

    Not too bad. Poured a nice golden color with a frothy head and nice lacing. Had a somewhat grassy and floral aroma with a flavor of bread, malt, yeast, and a nice dose of hops. I thought the hops were adequate given the style of beer, contrary to others who rated this. It finished real smooth and the hops lingered around for a little.
