look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

This brew pours a bright, light golden straw yellow. The head is white, thin and disappears quickly and the carbonation is moderate, not too fizzy at all. The smell is cereal, hay, and just a bit of honey like sweetness to the malt profile.

Glug glug glug

The flavor is sweet malt with a thin, but satisfying grassy hop edge balancing out the end. Not too complex, for a lager it has a great mouth feel and body. Over all a good easy summer time drinker, or any time really. Unpretentious, humble, and worthy.

I am generally a fan of Bell's, so I picked up a six pack of this when I was in Chicago (the Great Lakes area, if not actually Michigan.) Just off the bat, I love the elegant label and the name. The beer is not bad at all either. It tastes crisp and clean, with a clear hop element that is refreshing, not overpowering. Not a ton of flavor but pretty tasty for a lager. Easy to drink.

The Lager of the Lakes speaks to me. It's a lager that drive flavor and texture of lager to memorable levels. I am always impressed by the Bell's touch, which includes a hoppy finish with a dry mouthfeel.
This lager is memorable and light enough to warrant a second try.

Had this on 2014-02-15 in Columbia, PA

A - Somewhat hazy straw-orange with a 1-finger pillowy white head that sticks around and leaves some lace.

S - Rising bread, lemon, floral. Not powerful but nice.

T - Yeasty bread, herbal tea, lemon. Almost a Pils-like bitterness. Finishes dry with a some lingering sour dough, lemon and grassy bitterness. Pretty nice.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Smooth. Not watery.

O - Not a standout but an enjoyable brew with enough going on to hold my interest.
