If you have not, please, read them to get to know this midwest craft brewery. Let us get into this beer from Bell’s Brewery.
It has a copper color with a white head that fades over time. The smell has a citrus notes with a slight lemon notes. The taste has a carbonated citrus notes with a dry hop finish. It is pretty drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.bellsbeer.com):
Brewed with barley from our farm in central Michigan, Midwestern Pale Ale stands apart from the model of completely hop-dominated pale ales, offering a noticeable degree of malt body to counter the hop bitterness. A blend of floral & herbal hop notes provide the aromatic & flavor highlights, alongside the distinctive contribution of our house ale yeast. A crisp bitterness finishes the experience without being harsh.

In the end, this is a great pale ale. It is not the greatest but it is not below average. It is very hard finding this beer in date. I know I went to several stores and I have been finding it out of code. It is a newer brand to their every day line up. I do not think many people have try it yet. If they did, they did not like it and sales have slow way down for pull through at retail. It is not too hoppy but hoppy enough to make the hopheads happy. I will be looking for a fresh six-pack of beer. I recommend you trying this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
