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.

Draft at Mellow - strong hoppy aroma for a lager with a basic straw yellow pour, balanced and smooth taste with a mildly warming mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the can. Glad they canned this one. It will come in handy this summer. Nice clean crisp taste. Light like most othe popular lagers but has a nice little hop bitterness that sets this one apart. Another good job by Bells.

Pours a clear pale gold color with a frothy two finger white foam head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Very nice retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Visible carbonation bubbling up. Grassy floral hop aroma with ale malt and a slight adjunct presence. Some grass, straw and light fruit with slightly earthy, grassy, saaz like hops. There’s also some pilsner malts apple and pear. Decent but nothing special about the nose. Medium bodied wih a crisp hop bite that lingers over the pale malt and sweet fruit notes into a dry finish. Bitter and dry with grass, straw and subtle pine needle followed by bread, biscuit, apple and pear. There’s also a weird adjunct like metallic graininess that I can’t put my finger on which lingers after the finish. Crisp and refreshing with nice dryness but a weird and unpleasant aftertaste.

NikkTwist (2549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear yellow straw pour with a thin top of foam. Lasting ring. Very unusual powdery citrus flavors. Dried lemon peels dusted with honey corn starch. Tangerine pips. Snowflake bread rolls. Hints of dried pinecones. Vanilla ice cream. Lemon verbena. Plantains. Notes of sand tarts, oyster shells, buttered croissants, dream whip and toasted coconut. Standard base. Not huge or grand, but the flavors are just ... bizarre. And surprising. Which makes it quite noteworthy!

chucklemation (1247) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Pours a pale gold with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma is pine hops, citrus, and sweet resin. Flavor is sweet citrus and pine. Has a smooth body. This is very impressive. Delicious.

A pretty dang good hoppy lager. It’s a lot like Prima Pils, I’d say, but a bit heavier.

I found this on the menu and tried it on a whim, knowing Bells Brewery puts out good products. What a nice surprise! It doesn’t look like much, in truth, and the appearance is the weakest part of this beer, as it’s not much darker than your typical BMC type beer. But it’s got a nice crisp nose, moderately hopped, floral bite to the flavor. A very nice beer.

Tap...nice golden Lager color with a fragrant hop nose. Taste is of earthy, grassy grain and floral hops. Very easy drinking and delish.

7/16/2015: Draught at Arnold’s in Cincinnati, Ohio... Pale, cloudy gold color with a white head; this lager seems to be hopped up with citra... it’s grassy and tangy with some mellon and lychee flavors. Average body and mouthfeel. Seems to drink larger than 6.5%. Okay overall, but a pint was more than enough for me.
