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.

Bells is my favorite brewery. Larry Bell is a god. If you tell me that Larry Bell drank a beer in his dreams and then realized it. I will seek this beer out. I will travel to the ends of the earth and back for a chance to try this beer, and I do this because I know it will be worth it. And it is. Bells is one of those breweries that can do whatever they want however they want and it will always be amazing and this beer is no different. This is hands down the best lager I have ever drank. It Pours a fizzy murky lemonade color, with a thick white head and some lacing. Not much of a nose, a little hops and a lot of citrus and grass. The taste is hoppy too. A citrusy ipa flavor, with a pop-like lager body. If you ever come to a place where you can get a bells one off, do it. I?ll come right out and say it, I HATE lagers and I find this beer amazing. This is how all beers should be, delicious, alcoholic, and highly original. Leave it to Larry Bell.....

Can courtesy of my friend Lance. Thanks! Straw yellow with a tall, frothy white head. Citrusy and piney hops with soft biscuity malt. Taste is white bread, biscuit, lemon, citrus oils and pine. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more citrus notes, pine, floral hops, doughy malts and biscuit notes.

thegreenrooster (3979) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pour is a light straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a very surprising pine hop. It comes out of the glass and hits you when you did not expect it. Flavor is a lager malt body with the hop profile of an American pale ale. This has to be the hoppiest lagers I’ve had. Highly recommend.

obguthr (5591) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Can: Fecal pine, pencil shavings, and bean nose. Clear yellow, thick sticky head. Pine, coriander and bean. Light body, easy carbonation. I’d like the piney hops a lot better if this lager was cleaner. This was somewhere between a pilsner and a farmhouse ale, undoubtedly not what was intended.

jcnielsen (3180) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Can. Pours a light yellow color with white head. Straw, herbal, slight grassy, corn, very slight pine aromas. Grassy, straw, pils, slight piney flavors. Refreshing, yet slightly hopped up version of a lager. Good stuff!

Darwenus (869) - Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2016
A very light, crisp, refreshing lager that still has enough hop presence to worth drinking. You can actually taste it. This beer pours very bright, clear yellow with a lot of head. The aroma is hoppy and bright. The flavor is mild malt on the front of the tongue, and the finish is all about bitter dry hops. Light, but with a bite. This would make an idea lawnmower beer.

Slipstream (2444) - USA - AUG 20, 2016
Nice can and a fluffy white head. Light but peppy lager-pilsener, like an unexpectedly sweet pilsener maybe. Aroma has a little sawdust, citrus tang, yeast, and flowers. Another good one from Bell’s.

HourGlass13 (596) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours up piss yellow, with a steady bubbling white head. Aroma is all hops. Thin body, mildly fizzy. Taste is mainly a very hoppy, thin, watery IPA. Barely lager like. Definitely not my thing, and definitely not lager like at all.

freekyp (1911) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2016
This beer is basically an amped Pilsner with big west coast hops. Pours pale straw yellow with a small white ring of froth that leaves some scant lacing. Clean and hoppy with resinous citric components. Lots of sharp lemon and grapefruit. Lightly bitter tart long fade.
