Bell’s Smitten is a Rye Beer, 6% ABV. Bottled on 01/05/16, opened on 02/27/16.
This Pale Ale pours with a beautiful golden color with a darn near perfect white head. The aroma is a touch sweet with some caramel malt, a little rye spice a hint of pine hops. On the palate is some spicy rye, softly sweet caramel malt, and a bit of citrus hop zip. The finish is slightly dry and rye spicy with a mild hop bitterness.
This is a pretty refreshing and easy to drink seasonal Rye Pale Ale, it is unfortunate it won’t be fresh when Spring actually comes to most the country. Seasonal creep attacks again.
