COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Born in a dream, Quinannan Falls Special Lager Beer refers to a mythical place in the boreal north. While the waterfall may exist solely in Larry Bell’s imagination, the beer he remembered drinking there is now quite real. Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness you’d expect from a German pilsner, but the use of highly aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest in both the kettle & dry-hop evokes the fragrant pine forests that inspired this beer.

Goodgrief (2010) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Light golden pour with big frothy head. Grainy aroma with citrus. Flavor was similar, grains, some grassy hops with a distinct citrus sweetness, maybe a little too much. Still, enjoyable and refreshing.

jgb9348 (5823) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Golden coloured body with a thin pure white head, only a centimetre tall. Aroma of metal, light grain, alcohol and some fresh citrus. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavours up front with a very dry finish along with some lightly pungent citrus sweetness that finishes very easy. Aftertaste is slightly dry with fresh cut grass, a touch herbal and some light metallic and minerealy flavours that end nicely. Overall, a very nice mild lager with some smooth flavours with a touch of a funky and bitter finish. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York yesterday on 03-December-2016 for US$2,25 sampled on the train from New York to Washington the day after on 04-December-2016.

12oz can pours a clear golden yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet sweet malt and lager yeast. Taste of clean sweet malt, corn, lager yeast, and light bitter dry hopping. Very drinkable.

Pale straw color with a taller, lasting white head. Slight haze. Pale malt scent along with noble hops, mostly grass and light herbs. Light sweet start, with some floral undertones, which are balanced quite nicely by the herbal hops. Very easy drinking pale lager.

hershiser2 (2336) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2016
$2.10 can from Wine Warehouse. Pours light golden, lots of active carbonation, small soft white head. Aroma is lemon, grains, pine - quite nice for a lager. Awfully flavorful for a lager too! Nice mix of lemon and orange citrus, some grasses and grains, bit of floral hops, and some bready malt. This is a lager I can get behind.
