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.

Bells is my favorite brewery. Larry Bell is a god. If you tell me that Larry Bell drank a beer in his dreams and then realized it. I will seek this beer out. I will travel to the ends of the earth and back for a chance to try this beer, and I do this because I know it will be worth it. And it is. Bells is one of those breweries that can do whatever they want however they want and it will always be amazing and this beer is no different. This is hands down the best lager I have ever drank. It Pours a fizzy murky lemonade color, with a thick white head and some lacing. Not much of a nose, a little hops and a lot of citrus and grass. The taste is hoppy too. A citrusy ipa flavor, with a pop-like lager body. If you ever come to a place where you can get a bells one off, do it. I?ll come right out and say it, I HATE lagers and I find this beer amazing. This is how all beers should be, delicious, alcoholic, and highly original. Leave it to Larry Bell.....

Sampled on draft this beer poured a bright yellow-gold color with a large foamy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish and yeasty with a tangy lemon note. The flavor was bitter, tangy and tart with notes of citrus and wheat. Long finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Ok.

tillmac62 (759) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2017
Golden pour with a touch of chill haze. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Borderline quite outstanding aroma with a nice fresh airiness about it. The base is slightly sweet which allows pineapple and light orange/tangerine to shine against the modest amount of zest. Pine is present but not as pronounced as the fruit notes. Light body with a viscosity similar to water resulting in a slightly smooth texture. Outstanding carbonation / body balance. The middle has ample effervescence that just tickles the tongue. The finish is finely bubbled and prickly but falls short of rollicking. The flavor profile is very good. It doesn't present as complex as the nose suggested, unfortunately. Flavors tend to stay blended rather than separate. If you search, you detect slightly sweet fruit and pine with a hint of zest. Bitterness is mild and predominately pine in nature. The finish is a slow fade with pine and zest lingering.

12floz can, COD: 06.08.2017, purchased a six-pack for the sale price $5 (I've had before from bottle and draft). Poured into a pint glass, gold and and off-white head leaves splotches on the glass. The nose has a funky scent. Funky as in mildew and lemon, but not has accentuated as some American hopped "pilsners" I've had. A pretty easy drinking beer that is thin on malts. Moderate bitterness of citrus rinds is most noticeable flavor. I recall this being better when I had it from draft, oh well I'll consider it under certain circumstances in the future.

partchapol (143) - Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Smell of hop dominated, with pine and malt. Come in pale yellow with medium white crown. Taste of refreshing dry hop, bitterness of IPA in lager style. Just right texture. Above average beer. Smell very good.
