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 Bellís imagination, the beer he remembered drinking there is now quite real. Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness youíd 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.

TheBeerGod (6126) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Can courtesy of my friend Lance. Thanks! Straw yellow with a tall, frothy white head. Citrusy and piney hops with soft biscuity malt. Taste is white bread, biscuit, lemon, citrus oils and pine. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more citrus notes, pine, floral hops, doughy malts and biscuit notes.

thegreenrooster (4191) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pour is a light straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a very surprising pine hop. It comes out of the glass and hits you when you did not expect it. Flavor is a lager malt body with the hop profile of an American pale ale. This has to be the hoppiest lagers Iíve had. Highly recommend.

obguthr (6020) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Can: Fecal pine, pencil shavings, and bean nose. Clear yellow, thick sticky head. Pine, coriander and bean. Light body, easy carbonation. Iíd like the piney hops a lot better if this lager was cleaner. This was somewhere between a pilsner and a farmhouse ale, undoubtedly not what was intended.

jcnielsen (3342) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Can. Pours a light yellow color with white head. Straw, herbal, slight grassy, corn, very slight pine aromas. Grassy, straw, pils, slight piney flavors. Refreshing, yet slightly hopped up version of a lager. Good stuff!

Darwenus (1009) - Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2016
A very light, crisp, refreshing lager that still has enough hop presence to worth drinking. You can actually taste it. This beer pours very bright, clear yellow with a lot of head. The aroma is hoppy and bright. The flavor is mild malt on the front of the tongue, and the finish is all about bitter dry hops. Light, but with a bite. This would make an idea lawnmower beer.

Slipstream (2546) - USA - AUG 20, 2016
Nice can and a fluffy white head. Light but peppy lager-pilsener, like an unexpectedly sweet pilsener maybe. Aroma has a little sawdust, citrus tang, yeast, and flowers. Another good one from Bellís.

HourGlass13 (735) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours up piss yellow, with a steady bubbling white head. Aroma is all hops. Thin body, mildly fizzy. Taste is mainly a very hoppy, thin, watery IPA. Barely lager like. Definitely not my thing, and definitely not lager like at all.

freekyp (2041) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2016
This beer is basically an amped Pilsner with big west coast hops. Pours pale straw yellow with a small white ring of froth that leaves some scant lacing. Clean and hoppy with resinous citric components. Lots of sharp lemon and grapefruit. Lightly bitter tart long fade.

TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Canned on June 9, 2016. Light golden. Puffy collar of nonuniform foam. Decent aroma of lemon, orange pith, resin, spruce, and a hint of pepper and herbs. Soft, but foamy and loose, carbonation. Hops are immediately overshadowed by a forceful surge of stinging alcohol and viscid residual sugars. Hoppiness steers toward nuance-pummeling resin and orange pith, with minimal floral and lemon notes poking through. Negligible pepper and herbaceous notes are mostly absorbed by the ongoing alcoholic glow, although do help to sharpen the mouthfeel. Malt is fairly refined and fluffy and helps negate the alcohol. Body lacks firmness, and thereís very little dryness or minerals to cleanse the palate and offset the persistent resin and citrus. The finish is predominated by orange pith, yet contains salvaging haylike malt and a coarse herbal twinge which gives the impression of clean attenuation. While this lacks some of the nuance I look for the in the style, itís better than expected from this average brewery. Too bad that itís citrusy and resinous. A decoction would help give this some personality, and more lagering time coupled with a boost in minerals to firm up the mouthfeel would be welcome. Dry-hopping a lager is an unnecessary gimmick (especially with high-alpha PNW hops), but so it goes. No flaws or anything, just could use some fine-tuning. Serviceable.

Scipio (909) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Pours a clear yellow with a full, foamy white head that settles slowly. The aroma is softer, with lemon, grass, honey, floral hops, and some mild spice. The flavor has an interesting array of flavors. I find pine, lemon, biscuit, honey, a little bit of orange, and cereal, with the pine and lemon being the main themes. Short lemon and grassy aftertaste. Light in body, with a thinner texture, and some softer carbonation. This one is very easy to drink. A good buy for something different.
