Named after what in Michigan thinks of Lake Huron as being its third coast of the Great Lakes, first and second are Lk.Superior and Lk.Michigan.
Nice looking lager, soft hazy yellow, more orange at the top with a big luscious, pillowy head of stark whiteness that faded somewhat fast but always leaves a solid thin skim of foam the whole glass through, lacing is in stringy patches. Aroma is all malts, very biscuity, and bread doughish, with a slight soft touch of apple and citrus. Taste is darn nice, layered and fairly complex malts, soft and appealing, slight breadish quality with subdued yeast and hops that lend a bit earthy, nice mellowing bitterness and dryness follows through and lingers longly into the back of the throat and tongue. Very well balanced. Feel is a lighter medium body, pretty full too, with a bizaar light creamyness in the middle and giving way to a slight tingly dryness into the finish. This was a surprise to say the least, wasn't expecting it to be this good after reading so many mixed reviews. I figured its a Bell's it can't be all bad. And its not. One heck of a easy, well balanced little brew.
