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.

hotstuff (4840) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Rated on 7-22-2010 at Ratebeer Summer Gathering in Grand Rapids, MI at Hopcat. This draft beer pours a small white head with a long retention, transparent body, no visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, yeast, pine, crisp hops. The taste is malt, crisp, pine hops, and has a short dry finish. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. The flavors just did not come together very well and it left me not wanting this beer again. It is not a bad beer, it just did not suit my palate. To each his/her own.

Aroma of earthy hops and malts... The taste is fantastic with malt upfront and a hop finish. Nice

The aroma is earth, flowers, spicy. The appearance is clear god/orange, white head. The caramel, citrus hops, floral, nice. The finish is citrus, pine, lingering caramel sweetness. Medium in body. Very nice.

Pours light like a bud with big white head. Aroma of grass, light fruit, and wheat. Taste is bitter and crisp hops. Very dry finish.

DialSquare (4203) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
On tap at Proof. Not much of a note: grass, herbal, bread, pine, wheat. Rating: 3.4. Ok, but I guess I wasn’t a huge fan - don’t honestly remember this one too well.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Draft at Proof. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head. Very hoppy aroma, piney, spicy with touches a sweet pale malt. Flavor is similar with a clean lager finish. Not really a fan of this IPL thing that going on, but this one was pretty good.

jbruner (3852) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head and good lace. Aroma of spicy hops, lager yeast, and slight grain. Taste follows, zesty yet clean. Pretty solid, no hint of the booze.

drsordr (2239) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Draft pours light golden. Nose citrus hop, wheat, and an odd vegetal smell resembling celery. Taste citrus bite, bitter finish. Not much flavor in between.

SpongeRuiner (1108) - Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2016 On tap at the Michigan Summer Beer Fest. A fantastic lager. Has to be my favorite of the style. Still has that hoppiness though. Would love to get some of this.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Tap: Straw-yellow body, bright and sunny with a hazy core and a stark white, chunky & cloudy foam that lasts much longer than expected; nice webbing left behind. Aroma is great; herbal hops, grapefruit, tangerine, heavy grass, pines, leaves, some faint mango and even papaya (generic tropical fruit). Lightly sweet pale malts, biscuits, crackers, and a fresh, clean note from the crispy yeast on the back-end. The taste is just as great... Pines, leaves, citrus fruits, tropical fruits, aggressive & herbal hops, all dancing on top of a light but sturdy pale malt backbone. Faint biscuits and bread with a chunky and crispy yeast-filled finish that shines once the hops fade in the aftertaste. One of the best "hopped up lagers" I’ve had, mainly because you can still identify it as such. Goddamn, bring this stuff to six packs, Bells.
