COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Born in a dream, Quinannan Falls Special Lager Beer refers to a mythical place in the boreal north. While the waterfall may exist solely in Larry Bellís imagination, the beer he remembered drinking there is now quite real. Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness youíd expect from a German pilsner, but the use of highly aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest in both the kettle & dry-hop evokes the fragrant pine forests that inspired this beer.

Draft. Pours a golden color. Aroma and taste are grassy, fruity, and some bitterness.

NikkTwist (2048) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear yellow straw pour with a thin top of foam. Lasting ring. Very unusual powdery citrus flavors. Dried lemon peels dusted with honey corn starch. Tangerine pips. Snowflake bread rolls. Hints of dried pinecones. Vanilla ice cream. Lemon verbena. Plantains. Notes of sand tarts, oyster shells, buttered croissants, dream whip and toasted coconut. Standard base. Not huge or grand, but the flavors are just ... bizarre. And surprising. Which makes it quite noteworthy!

Pours a pale gold with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma is pine hops, citrus, and sweet resin. Flavor is sweet citrus and pine. Has a smooth body. This is very impressive. Delicious.

A pretty dang good hoppy lager. Itís a lot like Prima Pils, Iíd say, but a bit heavier.

I found this on the menu and tried it on a whim, knowing Bells Brewery puts out good products. What a nice surprise! It doesnít look like much, in truth, and the appearance is the weakest part of this beer, as itís not much darker than your typical BMC type beer. But itís got a nice crisp nose, moderately hopped, floral bite to the flavor. A very nice beer.

Tap...nice golden Lager color with a fragrant hop nose. Taste is of earthy, grassy grain and floral hops. Very easy drinking and delish.

APPEARANCE ? straw color. Light head, gone in a flash. NOSE ? clearly hop scent, but I don?t live it. Citra? FLAVOR ? same taste as nose. Not so good, ma.

shigadeyo (3296) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2015
7/16/2015: Draught at Arnoldís in Cincinnati, Ohio... Pale, cloudy gold color with a white head; this lager seems to be hopped up with citra... itís grassy and tangy with some mellon and lychee flavors. Average body and mouthfeel. Seems to drink larger than 6.5%. Okay overall, but a pint was more than enough for me.

Pale lemony hue, perfect clarity. Small, silky head of white. Aroma is earthy, with soil and a splash of orange balanced by grass and grain husks. Flavor is clean and crisp, with hops adding a citrusy snap to the otherwise featureless brew. Maybe a little herbal mint in there too. Very dry.

Pint on tap at Yard House in Kansas City, MO. Aroma has some mango and passionfruit. Some bubble gum hints are also there. This smells like it may be hopped with El Dorado. Transparent yellow body with a medium, fizzy white head. Starts really fruity with raspberry flavors. Some herbal bitter hops to finish. My guess is that this place had a raspberry beer on before this and didnít clean the lines, which is why I get an overwhelming raspberry flavor to this. Larry Bell should be smarter than to sell his beer to a chain like Yard House.
