COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Summer of Love was fun they say, but now we’re living in the SUMMER OF LAGER! "Lager" means "to wait a wicked long time until it’s ready." We brewed it in the fall, aged it all winter, then sampled it in the spring. Then again, and again, until finally we decided to share. Hope you like it.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a decent size fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, yeast, and sweet malts. The flavor is sweet, citrus, carbonated, mild hops in presence. Good brew.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Winter Vintage. Poured a very hazy yellow with minimal head. Almost notes of dill pickle. Floral and malty aroma. The flavor was pretty much the same malty, tart and a hint of dill. Not sure if this really should be under the same rating as the summer. The bottle says it is an aged lager not just a new batch brewed for the winter.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2006
big 750 ml bottle. Pours a nice ligth gold with a pretty good head and some lacing. Aroma is bready malts, very light herbal hops and a light lemony tartness indicating a slight infection which I get in many of thier beers. Flavor is also a bit tart among the malty characteristics and light hops- tart lemony and zesty with a weak mouthfeel. Watered down and bland finish. I wish I could find a cisco bottle of beer that wasnt infected. Im sure I would like this beer fresh- if someone can tell me where to buy a fresh bottle I’d greatly appreciate it.

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 12, 2006
750ml bottle: Hops up front in the aroma with a yeasty malty background. Tasted initially dry and crisp but as it warmed the fruitiness of the dense malt backbone gave a nice balance and finish. A dense golden color with a good clean white head. Good creamy bready mouth feel. Nice and fruity on the finish. Good summer offering from Cisco.

eaglefan538 (3019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Poured a murky golden color with a nice fluffy head. Aroma was citrus, spicey, somewhat wheat-like, a little musty. I was surprised it wasn’t a wheat beer, based on aroma alone. Flavor was citrus and crisp. Refreshing. Mouthfeel was moderately bodied, heavy for a lager.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2006
From 750mL Bottle. Pours a brilliant golden color with a tinge of lime and topped with a medium, soapy white head. Fruity aromas of watermelon rind, cantelope and organic lemon soap. Some wild nerbs and clover leaf garnishes well, giving it a near saison-like bouquet. Light to medium bodied texture with a wash of tarragon and rose petals. Some lavender stem gives it a firm gardeny tart balance. Slightly sweet corn husk with very minimal hops presence. Quite tasty overall, with a bit of lemony herbs complimenting the crisp, refreshing palate. Final smack of pepper and parsley. Thanks for sharing, Tom!

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2006
750 mL Bottle. Rich aroma as lemons and watermelons. Nice slightly tinged metallic floral hops. Tart and sweet aromaticity. Pour of elysian gold, with a rim of white. Flavor is heavily herbed, sweet golden malts, with sweet phenolics on the rested grains. Deliciate and lightly floral. Having trouble digging out the characters, but this is rich and nicely bodied for a generally lighter styled beer. Nice and clean, and exemplary for the style. Hints of lemon juice. White pepper cracked over. Wafts of epazote. Some light dryness, but hops really don’t play too much. Great body. Light tinge of indiscriminate hops and a good fresh malt sweetness in the end. Corn syrup smack. Great.

ABUSEDGOAT (2554) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2006 Hazy golden body, usual massive frothy head. Aroma is bread, grass, and their funky yeast. Well balanced, extremely flavorful for the style.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 21, 2006
750ml bottle shared by ClarkVV. Pours a dark golden color with a white foamy head. Nose is sweet honey with some light crisp grass notes. Palate is thick and syrupy. Flavors of honey, lots of sugar, some light grass and hay notes.
