Maroon Bells, an American Pale Ale by 14er Brewing Company

Share This Review

Maroon Bells is an American Pale Ale brewed by 14er Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a can.


The Pale pours a slightly cloudy golden hue and is topped by a finger-thick cap of loose white froth that dissipates rapidly. The reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue. Fine sediment is visibly afloat in the glass.


The aroma is musty with a scent of yeast, grain, and a hint of guava.

The palate is led by cracker malt that transitions to a light citrus bite of grapefruit. A mellow note of sweet guava balances the finish.


Its feel is crisp with a body that’s just under medium. Moderate carbonation.


Maroon Bells presents very nicely. But falls short in its aroma and palate. The presence of hops is very understated as cracker dominates early and fruit flavors take over from there. Perhaps this brew should be categorized as a Fruit Beer.
