COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nicely balanced, Bellís Lager Beer focuses on the flavors developed in the brew house, matching a crisp bitterness & distinctive herbal hop aromas to a simple yet firm malt backbone. Following in the tradition of Bohemian-style pilsners, this beer spends a full six weeks maturing in the fermentation vessels. This extended conditioning period refines the overall flavor, highlighting the contributions of the malts & hops.

A very fine lager to be sure, the kind of thing that gives me an appreciation for well done examples of a style I usually overlook. Pale, refreshing, with a good malty heft to it, it suffers only from the high price point.

Pale yellow with some head and good lacing. Bitterness without a strong hop flavor, good earthy undertones in this beer. Another good one from Bells!

Iím not sure how this "Lager of the Lakes" escaped a tasting, until now, but it has. I enjoy so many of Bellsí beers, but sometimes you just want a pilsner, and they tend to specialize in ales and stouts. This, however, is a good pils. Nice medium gold color, and an almost white head, which dissipates in about two minutes, start off the brew. Nose is lightly bitter and clean. Flavor is nice. Hoppy, for a pilsner, but not overly so. Good mouthfeel. This would be a very nice session beer, I think, and Iím likely to make it so during tonightís NFL opener. Another good offering from Bells.

Clear gold with white holey head. Light beer aroma of bitterness and fruit. Clean, refreshing, smooth. A good lager.

jcr (2636) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Clear light golden pour with white head. Sweet aroma with notes of bread, citrus (orange and lemon) and grass. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Crisp mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. This is an excellent summer refresher ó a clean lager with nice aroma and flavor.

Itís pretty hoppy for a pilsner. The aroma is earthy, kind of musty. It is very nice on a summer day if your in to hoppy beers.

Lager of the Lakes 12oz Batch 8008. Purchased today @ Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors in Washington DC. Pours yellowy with a pinky width bright white head. Nice pilsner nose. Taste is fresh with slight bitterness. Overall pretty tasty for the style, another good beer from Bells.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2007
(Labeled as Lager of the Lakes): from a bottle: Smells and tastes like a macrobrew, only slightly better. This was my fourth in a series of Bells beers one night after Batch 8000, Two-Hearted Ale and Kalamazoo Stout. I am certain that this rating suffered because of that, but I donít see this beer being all that good to start with.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 25, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear gold with a small white head. Grass and floral nose, a bit of bread. Body on the light side. Grassy, floral and grainy bread flavors. Not bad.

Very light, straw yellow color. Small head. Floral aroma, light but inviting. Highly carbinated, goes down smooth. This is a freshing pils.
