Beer Review: Bell's Lager of the Lakes

Still sipping on my bounty that I brought back from my trip to the Midwest. This lager has been sitting in my fridge for a few weeks and I pulled it out on a hot 95 degree day. Perfect for a golden lager. 

As refreshingly crisp as a morning swim
in a Great Lake, this brew is crafted with
Pils and Munich malts. The pronounced
hop character of this golden lager
sparks thoughts of sandy beaches
and rocky islands.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear golden straw color with a thin white head that settles right on the top with not much lacing.  

Aroma: Crisp noble hops and a very light touch of pilsner malt.

Flavor: Very light and crisp. Smooth maltiness throughout with a touch of noble hop flavor. Some straw and grass undertones. Bitterness is smooth throughout and finishes dry.

Mouthfeel: Low to medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: This would be the perfect beer to sit all day at the beach with. Very light but the flavor stands up. No corn or fruity esters from the yeast which I like very much with this beer. Another winner put out by Bell's.
