Beaver (1789) - 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.MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2007
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).
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 (6295) - 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.

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. Hammster (187) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. Poured a light golden ale with a white head. Crisp and refreshing aroma that was earthy and somewhat bitter. Very nice flavor was dry yet very quaffable and the hops was just about right and not too intense. Very smooth in the aftertaste. An excellent pils that is on par with, if not better than, locally (to me) brewed Summit Grand. LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2007
12oz bottle label as Lager of the lakes.. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma of floral hops and malty. Taste malty and yeasty with dry finish. LinusStick (3444) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2007
A great pilsener. Aroma of yeast and grain. Pour was a light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was nice and dry....lemon and honey in the front with a somewhat bitter hoppiness in the aftertaste. Nothing big, but enought to balance out this beer. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Lager of the Lakes: Gold honey pour a soapy white head that forms a solid ring. Saaz grassiness and light bready malts in the nose. Easy drinking, the body notes a nice balance of pine/floral hops and doughy malts. Delicate through and through, this is a very good example of the style.
