COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As refreshingly crisp as a morning swim in a Great Lake, this brew is crafted with Pils and Munich malts. The pronounced hop character of this golden lager sparks thoughts of sandy beaches and rocky islands.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Pale straw color with quickly fading white head. Nose is grassy and slightly fruity, with some faint light malt sugar coming through. Flavor is clean light malt with a touch of some funky grassy hops and a bit of lemon citrus here and there. Nice and crisp overall, and perfect carbonation. Nothing to gush over, but certainly an easy drinker.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pale in color and head. Aroma is grassy with a yeasty bready taste. Slight bitter finish. Not on par with bells heavier offerings but drinkable on a light summer day. I could drink this and mow the lawn.

demitriustown (1188) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2007
12 oz bottle: Aroma is nice malty, grainy texture with a nice slightly pungent hop aroma with some twang to it. Pours a medium sized head with a oragnish/straw color. Taste is nice for this kind of lager. "Like an old pilsener used to taste like before they got all watered down in the state" as my father stated. Palate is ever so slightly bitter with a bit of the malt bringing up the rear. Overall, I thought this was a really good pilsener. Bell’s seem to never disappoint with me.

Dogbrick (12633) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2007
This brew is a hazy honey color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Floral hops, grass and light malt in the nose. Light body with moderate carbonation. Saaz hops character alongside malt, straw and yeast flavors. The finish is bitter hops and bready malt with lingering bitterness. Above average all around.

Beaver (1763) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass.

The aroma is doughy, slightly sweet malts, with some grassy hops (Saaz?).

The flavor is mostly noble hops (Saaz) that are slightly metallic, but provide more bitterness than expected. A little sweetness from the malt comes out as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium and kind of watery.

Overall, a pretty good, albeit one-dimensional pilsener (not my favorite style).

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2007
wheat colored pour w/ a small thick white head. Light bread some honey touch of pepper tiny hint of an odd hop. Palate is avg. Flavor is some basic grain a light grassy hop touch of sweet almost like honey. Not to bad.. pretty good pils, very drinkable.

obguthr (6184) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Weak grass aroma. Gold color, thin head. Grassy and bitter. Slight black pepper aftertaste. Clearly not on par with Bell’s stouts.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Pours a hazy dark gold with fizzy head that disappates quickly. Nose is a little bitter, not much else. Flavor is quite bland. Not a bad beer, but very forgettable. Probably a good session beer, as it lacks much of anything, but it’s easy to drink. Clean finish.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 4, 2007
Golden clear brass body, with lots of rising bubbles into a thin cotton head. Smells of lager hops, strong piss, wet horse blanket, not aromatic in the slightest. Creamy texture. Lots of biscuity yeast, bready, and dank. Just way too unbalanced. This is the first Bell’s beer I haven’t liked, it was really terrible.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Pours yellow, clear, with a moderate, fine head. Aroma is pleasantly grassy and mildly sweet. Moderate mouth feel. Flavor is grassy with some mildly sweet undertones.
