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.

Rating for "Lager of the Lakes"

Pours pale golden and clear with a white head lacking in longevity. Dusty herbals and Saaz aroma, grasses and bready yeast. Smooth with a tingle. Mild flavor... an easy-drinker with moderate bitterness and no adversities. If the price was right, Iíd buy this by the keg as an "every day" beer. Alas, no availability in Illinois.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Bottle: This one pours a light golden in color, with a quickly diminishing white head. It smells like baking bread. Taste is a little yeasty with a hint of hops. This is ok, but I canít get into it.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 Pours golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of bready lager yeast, firm maltiness, a bit of mustiness. Taste has a firm malty backbone with a fragrant balance of Saaz. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly resinous hoppiness. Well made lager, quite delicious.

Pours a clear yellow with a fluffy withe head. Moderate carbonation. Nice clean mouthfeel. Refreshing. Slight bitterness onthe backside. Finish is crisp and long. Good summer beer.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 28, 2007
A very nice Pilsner. Not nearly as hoppy as many American pilsners, not as malty as many European. A great mix of the two. Very well done and enjoyable.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2007
12oz Lager of the Lakes batch 7726 - Aroma is full of lager funk, grasssy hops and pale malts. Pours transparent yellow with a small head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is creamy and smooth. A pretty tasty session brew.

jefcon (1690) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Light golden, cleassy and clear with a foamy white head that says "this is not a macro." Clean and pretty smooth. Grassy aromas and a hint of ginger along with some caramel malt give the aroma depth and complexity. Just as interesting on the palate, with a fading cereal finish, Saaz-y hops and a full, bread-and-buttery mouthfeel. A good pils.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle. Clear dull lemon-straw body with a sudsy white head. Modest aroma with lime and hay notes. Flavor is crisp, clean and semi-dry with nice doughy pils malt character. Light quenching tartness and mild bitterness. A solid lager (didnít strike me much like a pils).

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle. Not sure how this one has elluded me this long. Anyway, here goes. Sweet lager aroma with hints of allspice. Hazy yellow. Really, more yellow that gold. Thin, slightly off-white head. No lace. Nice color. Sparse vis carb. Dry. Has character. Ale qualities. Iím drinking this brew out of a Steam Whistle glass, and perhaps this is more power of suggestion than anything else, but reminds me a bit of Steam Whistle....actually, not really. Deserves its place at the higher end of the style percentile range, but a little too dry for me. A very solid pils nevertheless.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Golden/ straw colored beer with big fastly diminishing head. Aroma is... interesting...(sorry), apple, sweet malt, with a little noble hop aroma. Thin carbonated body. Slight sweetness with nice bitterness. Easy to drink and better than most of the macros.
