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.

bottle courtesy of rayl101, thank you so much! this is indeed a special lager, very good stuff. pours very crisp and clear light gold with a small white spongey head. the aroma is very crisp with a good bit of piny notes and some slightwer floral as well. the flavor is just gret, with a great progression on the palate. the adjunsts and hops play very nicely off each other here. its got a moderately oily mouthfeel, but is still very light, crisp and refreshing. the hops surge up in the aftertaste beautifully here. really enjoyed this one.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2011
On draught at Fourth Street Bar & Grill during the Bells Tap Takeover on 10/12/2011: Pours a clear golden color with a medium lasting white head. Short strings of lace. Aroma of biscuity malt and hops. Medium, crisp body with flavors of grainy malt, herbal hops and citrus. The finish is fruity at first and leaves a grassy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

Pint at the Bell’s tap takeover at 4th Street Patio on 10/12/11. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grainy malt and lager yeast. Piney and grapefruity flavor with some maltiness before a bright and crisp hoppy finish. Pretty solid for a lighter-bodied lager.
