COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nicely balanced, Bell’s Lager Beer focuses on the flavors developed in the brew house, matching a crisp bitterness & distinctive herbal hop aromas to a simple yet firm malt backbone. Following in the tradition of Bohemian-style pilsners, this beer spends a full six weeks maturing in the fermentation vessels. This extended conditioning period refines the overall flavor, highlighting the contributions of the malts & hops.

Clear bright golden with a thin foamy white head. Crisp and blonde grainy nose with just a hint of biscuit. Crisp and quaffable body with the same tones from the aroma--light biscuit, a clean golden malt body, light breadiness and just a whisper of grassy hops. Very clean but a bit basic.

Bell’s Lager has a thick, white head, a hazy, straw appearance, some lazy bubble streams, and splotches of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of subdued sweet & light malt, and the flavor is of sweet, white bread, pale malts, and low-to-moderate, somewhat grassy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bell’s Lager finishes crisp and easy drinking. RJT

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2016 This is a very easy to drink beer. It’s a good light beer for circumstances where you just want to pound a few, but you want them to taste yummy.

MetalNHopHead (1344) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Bell’s Lager (of the Lakes) drinks like an Americanized German Pils but with more hop bitterness... if that makes any goddamn sense? Yeah, I’ll stick with that. Pale color and white suds. Starchy cereal grain aromatics and starting impression on the tongue. Bitter grassy hops in the finish. Definitely refreshing and easygoing.
