COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Born in a dream, Quinannan Falls Special Lager Beer refers to a mythical place in the boreal north. While the waterfall may exist solely in Larry Bell’s imagination, the beer he remembered drinking there is now quite real. Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness you’d expect from a German pilsner, but the use of highly aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest in both the kettle & dry-hop evokes the fragrant pine forests that inspired this beer.

Very light and clean pour with one finger of white head. Nice aroma, resinous and funky/dank with hops. Citrus and floral notes. Nice and lean/dry in the mouth. Touch of a grainy balance with a very clean and bright hoppy finish.

On tap at the Eccentric Café. The pour is a nice clearish golden color with minimal head and a spotty lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice hoppiness and a gorgeous piney resin that really makes this stand out like an IPA rather than a pilsner. The flavor is just as good. The hoppiness and the resin are very profound with a light fruitiness and this is great. Very smooth and lightly bitter. The mouth feel is light, but decently carbonated. The aftertaste is nice and crisp with a lingering bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BLADT (576) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Draft pour. See-through yellow. Aroma is lemon grass, biscuit malts, and lager yeast. A real nice amalgam of pale ale and lager notes. Taste is crisp citrus notes, bready malts, and a general earthiness. Finishes just a little bitter.

on tap @ Arnold’s / Cincinnati OH --- Clear light amber with a slow to drop white head, splotches of lace. Taste is simple light malt with an immediate overbalance of citrus hops early in the palate. The hops, though dominant, aren’t very strong (since the malt is light to begin with, they don’t need to be). The total effect for me is of a watered down IPA. Drinkable, especially in hot weather, but not at all memorable.

Sampled at the W&C Beer Fest 2014. It poured a blonde color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, some floral hops, bread and yeast. The taste was of citrus hops, bread and yeast with a light palate and a crisp bitter finish. Very nice.

Dr_MedievAle (164) - Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Aroma: pine, rose petal, and grapefruit on nose. Taste: bitter grapefruit and pine, bitter finish, some sweet caramel up front. Palate: Silky mouth feel. Appearance: Cloudy yellow body and creamy ivory head. Unique and almost game-changing, this beer will have you reevaluate what a lager can be.
