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.

On tap at El Bait Shop. Great Beer! Rich gold with a medium white head. Amazing lacing. Pours crisp and clear with medium carbonation. Has a honey and candy aroma. Has an awesome rich thick flavor. Berries, sweetness, and lots of flavor hop bursts of citrus fruit rinds. Perhaps cherries even? WOW! Brief lemon aroma and maltiness. Seems like it has heavy amounts of honey, but I know better. Speaks volumes about this brewer when this is the standard-bearer beer.

From a 12 oz. bottle purchased at John’s in Iowa City. Labelled as Lager of the Lakes. A medium gold body is topped with a fluffy egg shell colored head. The aroma is boiled potatoes with some carrots and a little bit of grass. The taste has some light notes of spicy parsnips and potatoes. Nice and light. This is a decent light lager. The mouthfeel is soft and surprisingly full.

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.
