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.

Ontape (469) - Valley Village, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2015 Can. Really nice summer lager, a great day drinker (hope they say the same about me one day...)

Pours clear amber with substantial white head. Bready malt comes through foremost on the nose while the subtle hop kick comes through on the back end. Smooth and relatively full-bodied. Quite nice.

transparent gold, thin white head, wispy white head good lacing. Grainy nose, tons of toast, strong bitterness. Flavor is buttered crust, tons of toasty grass bitterness mid before lightly milky finish, thin and sticky with a bone dry finish, lightly papery.

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Draft pour @ Cisco. Clean, rich gold in glass. Limited head. No lacing. Lager nose with hints of floral hops. Some orange and crackers. Dry, medium body. Apricots offset the simple dough flavors on taste. Mild bitterness on finish.

essjay (18) - California, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Poured from can. Good carbonation and impressive head. Excellent interpretation of a real lager with a broad malt backbone, slightly sweet and pleasant hop back bite. New go to staple.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Clear pale gold pour with a two finger whispy white head that fades slowly to a ring. The nose is of honeyed doughy pale malt, floral noble hops and a hint of Pilsner malt sulfur. The aroma is rounded and enticing, hinting at the maturity if this fine brew. The flavour is simple and mild, though in no way insipid. Spicy hops balance the appropriately bready, lightly cracker-like malts. Very little sulfur in the flavour. The palate is crisp and dry, allowing the drinker to enjoy with minimal time between sips. The finish is medium long and spicy. Cisco is killing it lately

ScipioA (392) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours out a golden pissy yellow with a moderate off-white head. The head is quite pillowy and leaves bubbles all the way down the glass. Aroma better than many in the style, herbal and grassy German hops on top of a general beery aroma. Pleasing citrus flavor, specifically lemon. Great lager, at least around Boston you can find it pretty much everywhere. I’d put this above Sam Adams but below the German classics.
