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.

OmegaX (1156) - Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
On tap at Oblivion. Nose is lemon and orange/citrus with some slight grain and malty notes. Quite hoppy and aromatic for a lager. Poured a nice golden yellow with a bubbly white head. Taste was a good amount of hop bringing bright lemony flavors and some tasty cereal and bran like notes. The grain and hops really work well together making a balanced brew that is very crisp and refreshing. A great drinker.

On tap @ Oblivion Taproom
Appearance -Typical yellow, frothy head, bubbly :-)
Aromas - Fruity, hops, dry
Taste - Citrus, hops, malts, smooth

This one surprised me, but Bells is known for itís good beers. This lager was great, lots of fruity aromas and flavor - while being perfectly balanced in flavor. The hop flavor was a little high for a light beer - and was well on itís way to an American Pale before the malts set in.

phaleslu (5863) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft at The Bridge, from notes. Pours a clear, pale gold color with a small, soft bone white head that laces the glass evenly. Aroma of pale malts, apple, grass, bread, crackers, and sugar. Flavor of sweet and pale malts, crackers, straw, grass, mild spices, and cereal. Light-bodied, with a malty, sweet mouthfeel and medium crisp carbonation. Surprisingly sweet. Not bad, but glad I didnít trade for it, especially when I heard how expensive bottles were.

Hair6a11 (1268) - Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2012
On tap; pour is slightly murky light golden with a modest, fine bubbled white head in this glass. The nose is light fruity notes, cereal, piney hops, and lager yeast. I have to say, this is a fantastic lager. Light bitterness, peach skins, cereal, lager notes, and American hops. Pine, and florals. Nice!

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Courtesy of dcschiller at the Black Friday Tasting. It pours up clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is sweet with malts and some creamed corn as well as floral and spicy yeast notes. The taste is smooth spicy hop infused yeastiness followed by some floral and corn like notes. This is a smooth easy drinking brew with pleasing spicy hops where the floral hops and sugary malt sweetness donít get in the way for my taste.

Draught at Churchkey. Hazy yellow pour with a bubbly head. Nose holds HUGE mango, pineapple, guava, orange, and banana; just insanely tropical aroma. The flavor brings more straight grass bitterness, some dank herbal and crisp floral notes, and a touch of pink grapefruit. Incredibly crisp palate. If this were 10 bucks a six pack I could drink this stuff all summer long.
