On tap at World of Beer Raleigh. Served in a pint glass.

A - transparent gold with no head

S - lemon, faint cereal grains

T - lemon, cereal grains, grassy, noble hop notes

M - light bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a decent, light, easily drinkable beer. It is brewed to style so there is nothing that jumps out at you. It's just a refreshing, lighter offering that is rather enjoyable on a hot day.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
