Following in the tradition of Czech Pilsners by offering a combination of firm malt and herbal hop bitterness, Bell’s Lager of the Lakes is as refreshing and crisp as a swim in the Great Lakes.

On Tap. Pours deep golden with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of grassy, herbal hops and biscuit malt. Finish is long and dry. Delicious brew.

Golden with a white head. Zesty earth hops. Finish is sharp and bitter. Mostly clean. Medium bodied. Enjoyable.

Chugged a 12oz can poured into a glass. It was crisp, like the description suggested, but also smelled like the Great Lakes (fish, stale pussy). I know because I live near Lake Ontario. This beer wasn't great. RICHARD CAMPBELL FROM BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND IS ON WELFARE AND RIDES A TAXPAYER FUNDED MOBILITY SCOOTER TO THE SOUP KITCHEN.

Honey and a grassy aroma. Clear light amber color; white fluffy foam head. Tastes of the grassy hops and a solid malt base Light body with a touch of oiliness to it.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2018 Can pours a clear light golden color with a big fluffy, creamy white head that lingers leaving rings of lace on glass. Smells of crackers,a hint of grass, with some faint herbal-floral and spicy aromas. Tastes of semi sweet biscuits, with some herbs and a faint peppery spiciness. Light body, perfect carbonation, slick mouthfeel and a mellow bitter/spicy finish. It’s very crisp and clean. It’s balanced well yet the hops seem to shine through. This Pilsner is growing on me. Superb!!

Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from Meijer in Michigan Consumed: from a pilsner glass Aroma: Smells slight hoppy with a bit of sweetness. Appearance : slightly filtered pale gold with decent head that sticks around for a few sips. Lacing is the same. Taste: well balanced with a touch of hops. Palate : light body. Slight bitter aftertaste. Great carbonation. Overall: Just about a perfect Lager. Aftertaste was a little bitter then it should be, but overall this is about the best Lager besides Muskoka. I was glad to try and seek out again and again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

BOD 6/29/17. Clear golden pour. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing. The nose is very good. It provides a light lemon aspect that is airy over a subtly sweet malt base that has both bread and biscuit aspects. Light body with a touch of oiliness to it. The carbonation / body balance is world class. Effervescence is noted in the nose several minutes post opening. The middle is a tingly burst of finely bubbled effervescence that trails off towards the finish. The finish forms the final effervescent release crescendo and is quite prickly. The flavor profile is also very good. Intensity is world class, quite flavorful. Complexity is average - a bit of lemon over a sweet biscuit (mostly) base. Bitterness is surprisingly aggressive for the style and is herbal in nature but lacks real associated flavor. It's more of a bitterness for bitterness' sake approach rather than targeted such as with PU and Saaz. The finish is a bit crisp and fades with a light lemon sweet bitterness.

Rated on 9-11-2017. This draft beer's appearance when served is a small white head that is mostly lasting, lightly hazy medium yellow body, no carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is grass and malt. The flavor presents light bitterness, malt, crisp, and dry. The mouthfeel is clean and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer that has a light bitter finish. This is a so-so beer and not one of my favorite Bell's beers.

As with other Bell's styles I have tasted, this one poured with a nice head -- rocky, nearly creamy which stuck around for a good while. . . .aroma was of lightly sweet malt and then hops. . .taste again had light sweetness, followed by hops bitterness and very dry finish which I did not personally care for. This is not the type of "Lager" that I am used to and, if choosing a Lager, I would prefer Yuengling.

I would drink this beer if handed to me, but I will never buy it again. With "lager" in the name I expected this to be a very smooth (maybe even bland) beer. But I found it very hoppy and I’m not a fan of hoppy beers.
