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.

Draft at Eccentric Cafe. Poured a light golden. Medium white head. Good lacing. Hoppy aroma as it warmed up. Bitter hoppiness similar to what I’d expect in a pale ale. Very crisp and clean finish. Nothing that really jumps out at you on this one. Overall very solid. Nice sessionable beer.

I don’t remember writing this, but do remember trying to drink myself to death with beer. From my notes: "Super hoppy, super dry, beautifully clean lager yeast and crispy/snappy malts... This beer is a pimp!" And we all know pimpin’ ain’t easy. The scores for this beer are criminally low.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Draft… RBSG 2010… Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is very earthy, piney and cat pissy. Medium to full-bodied and pretty creamy with jazzy carbonation. The flavor mirrors the nose with lots of earthy, piney notes. Balance is good. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish. I could drink a boatload of this one.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Draft at Hopcat during RBSG. Pours a pale gold with a sticky white head. Hoppier nose than the IIPA I had at the same time, got lots of citrus and some light pine as well. On taste, a bit metallic at first with some clean honey and citrus coupled bitterness. Very easy drinking and refreshing. Nice fresh hop taste. Good stuff.

Ughsmash (7003) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2010
On tap at Hopcat. Poured crystal-clear lighter golden with a sticky white head. The aroma was fresh and bright with lemon zest over honeyed malts.. spicy fruit, earth, and pine joined in.. perfect balance with warm undertones. The flavor had a sweet honey and lesser bready base with lively hop bitterness around (pine, lemon, and dusty, dry, peppery earth).. tangy bitter and lemony finish. Crisp and refreshing on the palate, despite some warmth.. spicy, bitter, and engaging. Excellent stuff!
