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 Bellís imagination, the beer he remembered drinking there is now quite real. Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness youíd 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.

malvrich (218) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2016
5 week old can into a chalice. A: Pale straw yellow with a big frothy white head and a few visible bubbles. Very good retention but little lacing left. S: Lemons, grass and crackers. A little alcohol later. T: Lemony hop note hits first immediately followed by a stiff, dry white toast or woody smack. Ends bitter with bread and a bit of alcohol hotness. M: Soft frothy carbonation washes over the tongue at first sip. Light/medium body with an almost dry finish. O: Good easy to recommend lager on all counts except way too strong.

12 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co., displaying a clear, golden color, with a frothy layer of white head foam, and wavy spray as lacing. The nose was lightly floral, with touches of grass & resin, lemon & wheat, and a hint of sweetness. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added a modest, earthy bitterness, with a somewhat crisp & dry finish. Very drinkable, but didnít really project noticeable Imperial, much less lager traits, imo.

mambossa (273) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Bright sunny straw with a surrendering illumination. Floral nose with a bit of pastel lemon, banana, pepper, young fruity spruce tip. Flavor is amped up with lemon and banana, lager pepperiness, sweet flowers. Crisp, forgiving, elegant, simple. Best lager Iíve had in ages. I absolutely adore the dream-based inspiration, and can entirely relate to that. Refined, humbly vivid, a beer that does not speak beyond your depth, but brings you to a contemplative, content, and calm state of mind. And itís not just the alcohol ;)

JDBaker11058 (1819) - Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2016
appearance: clear, bright straw with frothy, soapy white head and good lacing. aroma: bright and clean, full of pilsnery malt, white pepper, floral hops, and drying hay. taste: fresh-tasting, full of floral and lightly piney hops, some lemongrass, pepper, and white toast. finish: dry, pretty hoppy, with a lingering bitterness. notes: Thatís a very good lager. I like mine with just a tad more of a malt sweetness, but this was bright, clean, crisp, and refreshing. Can from Normís in Vienna, Virginia.

vyvvy (5528) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Pours clear golden yellow with a white head. The aroma had pine, woodiness, spice and some floral notes which are lightly offset with pale bready malt. It has a medium/fill body that is velvety with gentle causation. Carbonation. The taste has smooth lager with minor toast and the hoppiness is on the earthy and woody side along with some floral notes to make it more gentle. Very nice.
