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.

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

Batch 7726 of "Bell’s Lager of the Lakes" Lager Beer made with Pils and Munich malts (5% ABV according to the Bell’s web site)... Light golden yellow color with a small foamy white head. Moderate amount of visible carbonation. Aroma is pale malt, light grassy hops, and a certain tanginess that I can’t put my finger on (most likely a characteristic imparted by the particular strain of yeast used). Great pils flavor is accompanied by a well constructed grassy and slightly spicy hop bitterness (mild to moderate bitterness overall). More and more great European-like Pilsner flavor seems to surface with each drink, so the overall flavor also gets better and better! Light and crisp on the palate. A good, easy drinkin’ Pilsner offering from a great brewery! 12 oz bottle, $1.50+tax (sale) from Jungle Jim’s.
