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.

eruizgarcia (195) - - AUG 25, 2013
Pretty decent summer lager, on tap at the Happy Gnome. Just a little better than a run of the mill lager but nothing special. Small white head, typical light amber color and a bitter finish. Decent carbonation.
