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.

Bottle. It pours a clear yellow color with a disappearing white head. The aroma is grainy without much else going on. The flavor is lightly grainy and a little floral/spicy noble type hops. Hints of soap. It has a grainy/floral finish. Pretty nice as a premium lager. Mostly clean, but the soapy notes keep me from rating it higher.

Pours a crystal clear golden color. About one finger white foamy head. Good retention, good lacing. Pretty good carbonation.

Aroma is biscuuty malt, light lemon, light butter, and old closet. Smells pretty good, it has some character.

Taste is hop forward, but not bitter. The hops reall y domstand out. It’s grassy hops, pepper, light toasted malts. It’s very clean.

Mouthfeel is medium light bodied. It’s very clean, very crisp and dry. It’s leans bitter.

Overall, it’s pretty good. My glass here has all kinds of lacing on it. The hops are the star, maybe slightly overdone. But it’s a fine beer. I recommend it, I would probably buy it again.

Bottle - Pours pale straw..white head. Smell is buttery, like butterscotch or a buttery biscuit. Flavors of hay, cereal, and mild herbal presence. Smooth bitter in the after. For the style.... best premium lager I’ve had.

onceblind (7302) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2016
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.

ronaldtheriot (1782) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 12, 2016
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.
