look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pours a pleasing golden color with a nice white two finger head. Active carbonation floats upward - a nice looking lager.

Nice grassy hops aroma with a hint of spicyness and a little pine resin. A little bit of malt sweetness comes through as well.

Taste is assertively hoppy with a sweet grainy malt in the background. The malt is pilseneresque, the hops have a nice, crisp pine resin bitterness with a little spice.

Mouth feel is lively and crisp. This is one easy drinking brew with enough going on to keep things interesting. It's almost up there with Prima Pils in the hops department, and I'd say it is pretty comparable to that fine lager. I'll be buying it again. Nice to find a top shelf lager from my home state.

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.
