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.

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from ABC. Pours a wonderful hazy gold with a decent head and really nice lacing. Aromas of citrus and bread. Sweet taste throughout with a pretty dry finish; medium body with a lingering, light bitterness. Quite refreshing overall. Acquire.

Clear gold with a white foamy head, a shade darker than I would have expected from a pilsner. Aroma grainy, herbal, with a bit of a veggie note. Taste grainy and light, hints of biscuit, touch of buttery feeling. Nicely drinkable.

EithCubes (5461) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Can. Nose pils malt, lightly sweet with lemony, sunny citrus and grassy hops with a touch of sugar - very inviting. Pours transparent yellow with avg carb and a large rocky white head. Watery light body is sweet with very low bitterness (drier and bitterer in the finish), lemony citrus extremely juicy throughout, touch of bread by the end. Has a very little bit of maltiness for balance, everything’s fresh and clean. Soft, delicate, enormously attractive.

12 ounce can. Bright honey gold color. Big rocky white head. Grassy cereal malt nose with hints of lemon citrus hops. Flavor is dry and crisp with more grassy hops and bready malt. Tart lemon peel notes in mid taste. Some cardboard funkiness in finish.

Drank it straight out if the can. Light and very approachable. Tasted good after mowing the lawn, that’s for sure.

355ml can. Was expecting a "pale lager". Definitely mroe along the lines of a czech pils especially with the honey like malt character.

ContemplateBeer (1946) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 28, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Aroma: Lightly honeyed malts with cereal; hops are more herbal and lightly lemony. Appearance: Royal gold, mostly transparent pour with a foamy white head that settles into a slightly sticky skin; visible carbonation is very minimal. Flavor: Herbal/ lemon character is most apparent with malts coming in a bit more midway; dries out thoroughly with some lingering semi-sweet malts. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, very soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Thought this was pretty good; in the top 1% of Czech Pils? I have my doubts.

Frank (3901) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2014
This is sort of pale ale-ish I guess. It does not really strike me as a traditional lager style at all. It is cloudy orange golden w/ a huge head and lots of sticky lace. It smells of nutty malts and fruity hops. This is a rather thick and full bodied beer w/ creamy carbonation, definitely heavy for the proclaimed style but pleasant enough. The hop character here is sort of dusty and earthy w/ a bit of resinous pine. This is not outright terrible but not at all what I was expecting.
