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 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!

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 don’t get in the way for my taste.

750ml bottle, number 135/313, many thanks to Ken for bringing this one. Clear gold with excellent condition. Excellent hops throughout. Mouthfeel maybe a touch soft but otherwise top of the class.

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.

Draft. Pours blonde with a white head, nice retention/lacing. Aroma of citrus/floral hops, fresh bread, lager yeast. Taste is citrus hops, bread, yeast. Palate is light, soft, with a crisp bitter finish. What all lagers should aspire to be.

Clear yellow pour with a nice white head. Epic fruit floral notes with citrus and nectar lead to clean malt toastiness and rose water. Amazing.

brokensail (13669) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Pours a clear golden straw color with a tall white head. A touch of adjunct on the nose along with plenty of bread and biscuit malt. Some floral hops and a bit of lager yeast. The flavor is lightly sweet with some biscuit and bready malt. Faint bitterness and floral hop flavors.

Draft at Rich Os. Clear, light gold body with a frothy, white head, slowly diminishing. Malty aroma with hints of spice and pepper. Notes of fresh, raw hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Flavorful beer for a premium lager — leafy hops with a clean, malt backbone. But then this is a 6.5% beer and above the guideline for a premium lager, strictly speaking. If Bells could make something this flavorful in a sessionable 4% beer ...
