Bell's Lager Of The Lakes - Bell's Brewery, Inc. Poured from the bottle into a mug, this brew's got a finger thick, mildly porous frothy head, nice lacing, and a clear, pale golden body.

I smell faintly roasted malts and JUST a dash of hop bitterness.

Tastes like light biscuit malts. A slightly metallic bite hit the tongue, but I like it.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp.

Overall 3.25 is given to Bell's Lager Of The Lakes - Bell's Brewery, Inc. A very refreshing brew, I may pick this up again.

Bell's Lager of the lakes brewed by Bell's Brewery Inc. with an ABV of 5.0% This brew pours out a cloudy amber with a small white head. This is an unfiltered brew you can not see thought it. The smell is rich with sweetness and grains. So far this brew is nice now for the taste. The taste is sweet and smooth, but there is a little bit of a bite at the end. There is nothing over powering in this brew. Lager of the the lakes has a nice balance to it. Bell's did a nice job with this one. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5.
I would buy this brew again.

The beer pours a white bubbly head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a clear and pale gold color. The beer smell has a strong sweet malt smell. The smell also has yeast notes and a bit of a light hop profile that create a bitter banana smell. The beer taste is similar to the smell but that the notes are stronger and that hops are more noticeable than in the smell. The beer is very refreshing but a little sticky. The beer has a very light body and very smooth. It also has very little carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer worth getting.
