3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great, clean and crisp lager. Slight hop notes in the aroma and flavor. Grainy, clean and simple. Hilarious that some people expect these types of beers to be as flavorful, complex and over-the-top as Two Hearted or Expedition. I’ll drink this beer any time!
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. SONOFWODEN (72) - New York, USA - SEP 3, 2017
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. fsquirrel29 (91) - Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2017
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. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2017
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Beloit, WI, served 10 minutes out of the fridge in a Christoffel glass. Deep, lightly hazy-oily gold, largish very stable creamy-chunky off-white head...beautifully textured aroma of sweet pils malt and light herbal-grassy acerbic notes; a hint of soapiness on opening but this disappears fairly quickly...very light sweetness at the front, and a bit at the end, but overall this is dry, moderately to strongly bitter, grassy and a bit alkaline...bitterness carries through at the finish for a long, dry ending, with a full mouthfeel and somewhat low carbonation. I’m on a totally different vibe with this than most of you guys, this is hugely enjoyable for me, and I’m glad to be really enthused about a Bells product again. ryrpat (387) - Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2017
Typical Czech lager. Nice golden color and a nice malty backbone giving a nice sweet finish

Great, European style pilsner . However it doesn't have IPA aroma or high ABV and has a word "lager" on it . With this combination it's not easy to get great reviews)).

Poured clear amber with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt and sour citrus aroma. Medium body with lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer. Bacchus66 (937) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2017
From tap. Clear yellow with a thin white head. Straightforward nose of cereal and grainy hops. Very smooth citrus texture with a long finish. crispaire (244) - - JUN 8, 2017
One of my favorite pilsners of the year so far. A well done brew! Great balance between clean crisp flavor and subtle spicy hops. Refreshing with short finish. Can only improve as the temps get hotter...

From bottle. Straw yellow pour and a small white head. Grassy aroma and a bit of biscuit in the taste. Nice bitterness true to style. Light to medium mouthfeel. Perfect gentle carbonation.
