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.

Tap at Sam’s! What a nice surprise to randomly stop in here on a thursday night and find this rarity on tap! Sam’s must be the #1 Bell’s account in the state because they have been getting lots of one-offs and other Bells kegs that you rarely see outside of the Kalamazoo area. I was a little worried that this might be an old keg, but was willing to take the chance. At sam’s you have to get a full pour, or nothing so I got almost a full pint of this magical lager. And super magical it is. I don’t think I have ever had a better lager, and ofcourse this only had a few characteristics I would associate with lagers, but I am by no means an expert on the subject-actually quite the novice. Pours a glowing yellow with light orange tints, a large, succinct and neat two finger white head with a steady sticky white lace throughout. Nose is fantastic. This is an strong pale lager/imperial pils. Almost smells like a funky orval or a super dry Stillwater premium, super doughy, dry hops are in full effect, hardly any sweetness at all, just super fresh, light lemon and grassy tartness. Flavor is equally amazing. Super dry, lightly fruity, minerals, light leather and barnyard. Again, very light sweetness, incredibly crisp and dry. I had to drink this much quicker than I would have liked because of time constraints, but goddamn, it was amazing. Clerk said they hoped to get another keg or maybe even some bottles as Bells has plans to brew this again. I sure hope so. Best Lager I have ever had, hands down.

Aromatic robust lager with an IPA type punch. This beer is very drinkable in a light clean fashion vs. The heavier weight that an IPA is sure to provide. Great taste.

Pours a pale gold with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma is pine hops, citrus, and sweet resin. Flavor is sweet citrus and pine. Has a smooth body. This is very impressive. Delicious.

This beer was featured at the "12 Bell’s of Christmas" at Chatham Tap in Fishers, IN in early December. First off, I have to start this off with wow. It pours a BMC like dark straw yellow with no head at all. It look no different than a Bud or Millter Lite. This deception leads to a greater finish. It smells great. It has this Gumballhead mixed with IPA aroma to it. It is very piny, floral, has hoppy bitterness to go with subtle sweetness. The flavor mirrors this. It has the flavor of Gumballhead mixed with an IPA to feature a perfect mix of the two. This is by far the best lager I’ve ever had. It drinks very light and smooth. The content is very deceptive. It drinks so light and has exceptional flavor that this beer can creep up on you. It is excellent, absolutely phenomenal. Wow. It’s disappointing that this may have been my only time to drink it. What a beer

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.

WOW!! This ppoured a light yellow color with a white head. Aroma was very refreshing light citrus andpine hops and not much else. Flavor was very surprising nice amount of piney hops, some grapefruit too. Great hop flavor but not very bitter. Just so refreshing, this would be the PERFECT lawnmore beer.
