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.

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 6, 2016
12 oz. can from Old Town; pgkd 6/16/16. Aroma: Moderate lemon curd, light pale cereal, lighter pine. Appearance: Rich yellow with soft carbonation holding up a foamy white head that settles into a patchy ring. Flavor: Pine and cereals lightly up front with a growing lemon curd hop presence; the finish is bitter and lemony. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A nicely done strong pale lager that showcases just how tasty this style can be when obtained fresh and not from the old Soviet Bloc.

On tap. Pours a clear pale golden color with a nice head that lingers a bit. Aroma of citrus, grain and malt sweetness. Taste on citrus, bit of malt sweetness and grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Enjoyable beer.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a clear yellow color with a small white head. Someone at the bar talked about how much hype this beer has. Whatever hype this might have, I’d say it’s real. Delicious beer. One of the better lagers I have ever had. Nice crisp notes, sweet grain, light biscuit malt. Tasty.

Can from TODD! Thanks!

A: Pale gold with an enormous white head.

N: Cracker, pine, and grass. Sulfur and minerality. Very floral with some coriander and herbs.Toast and a hint of green apple. Lots of spent grains and toast.

T: Quite bitter, sweet underneath.

M: Medium body, quite dry, crisp carbonation, significant alcohol burn.

O: Decent. I wish they would have toned this down so that the alcohol didn’t overwhelm the rest of the flavors.

Maybe someday the words "American Lager" will come to mean a hoppier version of the traditional Lager. I can dream, can’t I? That’s basically what Quinannan Falls provides. It’s bready, smooth, and easy to throw back. The hops add just enough crispness to be noticeable yet won’t entirely cause this beer to be confused for one of the IPL’s on the market. Satisfying in a big way.

Quinannan Fall’s Special Lager has a very thick, spongy, white head, a hazy, straw-gold, bubbly appearance, and some fairly heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of strong citrus/pine hops, with sweet, white bread. Taste is the same, and it comes across like an IPL. Mouthfeel is between light and medium, and Quinannan Falls finishes crisp and not so strong. RJT

Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2016
28 July 2016, can. Pale yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is nice lemon juice and some lager bitterness. Thin body, faintly creamy, mildly fizzy. Lemon, bitter dried grass, mildly bitter, a tad sweet. Very nice.

3.6
J_man (1023) - Tustin, California, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Clear light yellow color with a medium foamy white head. Light, clean malt and spicy hop aromas. These aromas follow right into the flavor with a nice spicy hop bitterness and cracker malt flavor. Drinks smooth with just enough flavor to keep it interesting. Finishes with a lasting spice bitterness and lingering malt flavor. Great summer beer.
