Bell’s Smitten Golden Rye Ale

So I’ve noticed this year there seem to be more Spring-y type beers on the market. Each brewery seems to have come up with one or more Spring seasonals. This may have happened before and I just didn’t notice it, but I have been trying as many as I can and when I came across Bell’s, knowing how good their product usually is, I figured I’d give it a try. This one pours a pale orange color with a white head that laces the side of the glass as you drink it. If I didn’t know this was a rye beer, I would swear it was an IPA. It hits you right away with the floral, citrus of west coast style hops. The flavor comes through with a little bit of lemon and orange marmalade. It finishes with a little spiciness from the rye. This is a very refreshing light bodied beer. I would definitely have this one again. I rate it 4 out of 5 proper pints.
