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.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is transparent, appearing a pale yellow color with a white cap. Nice aroma of citrus, hops, fruit, biscuits, subtle malt. Nice refreshing flavor. Hop forward with abundant citrus notes, exhibiting a lot of pale ale characteristics. Lingering bitter finish. Pretty dry. Overall, a really solid beer. It would be easy to have a few of these in a session. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-08-2011

Bottle. It’s Bells...so you can’t go wrong. A nice citrus and hop flavor. A dry pine finish. What’s not to love?

Draft to pint (from notes). Looks like a good lager; golden with white lacing. Smells pretty good; hoppy. Tastes nice! Crisp and hoppy with a pleasant mouthfeel. This is a great hopped-up lager that’s a wonderful warm-weather brew (or any weather, for that matter).

Poured clear with a champagne color a nice small head adn great lacing. Aroma of pears and elderflower and a bit of floural hops. Tastes of a clean crisp nicely hopped pilsner with a bit of fruit essence. Palate is dry and crisp carbonation is perfect, overall it is a wonderful pilsner.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle 189 of 313:   Straw in color, slight haze, large pillowy white head, nice lacing.   Hoppy straw like like aroma.   Smooth straw/hay like flavor, a little grassy, slightly dry, not too sweet, with a soft hop presense.   More bitterness comes out as it warms, but its still remains soft.   Lingering straw, hay, and grassiness.   Wished it were a bit more in body, heavier, and at 6.5% an IMperial Pils it seems a bit light.   However, its very well crafted and enjoyable.   Just not as big as I was hoping it would be.   A softer cleaner example of the style.   Thanks Kevin for the bottle!

Pre GTMW party at Maduro. Filtered yellow-orange. Straightforward beer-beer in a way. Sort of a boho feel.Fruity tropical undercurrents bring to mind summit hops. Very mellow and delicate, flowery. Doughy, interesting tangy finish. Different, well done, adds a delicate saison-ish feel to a lager.

Light Golden clear. Hoppy for a lager. Surprising that it has lacing. Thin white head.

On tap at a Bell’s taptackover. This is no lawnmower lager. Pours a light hazy yellow. Taste is very malty. Full bodied with the bready taste. A hoppy finish in the form of a sweet piney taste. Absolutely no hint of fruit. And the alchol hits you after the pint!
