COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As refreshingly crisp as a morning swim in a Great Lake, this brew is crafted with Pils and Munich malts. The pronounced hop character of this golden lager sparks thoughts of sandy beaches and rocky islands.

12oz beer, labeled lager of the lakes, a great looking label. pours clear straw color with small white head. nose is toasted cereal grains and sorta skunky. flavor is simple, crisp, biscuit, and refreshing. i’m no expert on this style but i actually think this is sorta tasty.

12 oz bottled as Lager of the Lakes. Pours light gold. Sweet cereal grain maltiness on the nose. Has that euro-skunky pilsner flavor but not to the extreme. Decent for what it is... a session beer by Bells. Nothing fancy here.

12 oz Lager of the Lakes. Very yellow color with a good loose foamy head. Natural/earthy tasting with the slight grass flavor with the malt and spice. A desent pilsener for once, instead of the Pale Lager those macros try to pawn off as as pilsener. Refreshing

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Bought a six pack of bottles under the name "Lager of the Lakes". Slightly above average pilsener, quite drinkable.

Lager of the lakes,a feeble attempt to duplicate a czech pils.Turn on the foglights as visibility in this brew is minimal.Icebergs are there with a highly citrus taste.Another 800 years and Bells will have pils to an art.Bells has too many fine brews to bother with this one.

I had this under the "Lager of the Lakes" label. It’s a richer orange/yellow than most such beers, and there were some things I rather liked--the palate seemed creamy yet awake, and there was a moderately pleasant floral note, like heather or clove. It was drinkable with only a bit of a metallic note in the early-going. It was reasonably buttery, sweet, herbal. Not bad at all. The aroma was the weakest element.

edfitz (118) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Golden with virtually no head. Yeasty aroma. Bitter, sour. Poor by Bells standard. Tastes like skunky Budweiser.

GoBlue (104) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Rich and toasty in both flavor and aroma. Many spicy flavors. Medium bodied. Too heavy to be an easy drinker, too light on flavor to be special
