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.
2011 vintage - 5.0% abv

Pailhead (5093) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Bottle: Aroma is very grassy with some light grain, bread, and a touch of honey. Pours a bright crystal clear gold with a small soapy head that quickly fades to a ring. Starts lightly sweet with a hint of honey and sugar. Moderate grassy finish. A solid pilsner. Very easy drinking, but once again, not my style.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2006
12 oz bottle labeled Bells Lager Beer - Poured golden with a short white head that stayed pretty well and laced the glass. Aromas of grassy hops, and crisp grains. Flavor is grains, pale malts, and a crisp clean hop finish. Light bodied with fair carbonation. Not bad at all for the style..

Crystal clear yellow body with little head. Slight hops, but not much else going on. Interesting for the style but nothing Iíll re-visit.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Good example. No corn just mellow hops and pale malts. Crisp, clean, slightly bitter and mildly sweet. Finish slightly dry.
Earlier Rating: 3/28/2003 Total Score: 3.3
Light gold color with a large rocky white head. Hop aroma with a dry hop taste. A very drinkable beer that I would like to try on draft.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 Ha! Eat it Hoster, Iím the first to rate this! Pours golden with a pure white head. Smells like a beer pong table on the morning after a party. Tastes grassy and finishes with a pronounced corn-like aftertaste. This is what I think something like a Miller Lite or a PBR would be if it didnít taste watered down or have any odd chemical flavors. Itís refreshing and certainly much better than too many other beers in this category (by volume), but itís not my thing.

Draft at brewpub Cafe. Poured clear amber with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt and sour citrus aroma. Medium body with lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2006
On tap at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Poured a clear, lighter golden with almost no head. Sweet pale malts and corn syrup on the nose with hints of herbal hoppage. Sticky pale malts in the flavor with some darker sugars... but lacked a good driving force... mild herbal bitterness at the edges. This really didnít do it for me.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Draught @ Bells Eccentric Cafe 7/13/06. Pours a dark, clear yellow/golden color with a big white fluffy head. Nose is very corny with some honey and grass notes. Palate was crisp and refreshing. Lots of bubbles quickly floating up to the top of the glass. Head retention is good with the head staying for 3/4 of the glass. Flavor is corn and honey, kinda on the sweet side with a bit of grass notes.
