COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The lager is the lightest, most refreshing of our beers. It's a classic Bavarian style lager with a delicious bready malt palate and an assertive noble hop finish. It just makes your mouth beg for more...
Called Winter Vintage when released during the winter.

Bottle thanks to trade with phatdog1! Pours a clear golden color with quickly dissipating white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of clean bready grains and malt, taste follows, clean and crisp. A solid lager, but nothing special.

Enjoyed on tap while waiting for my delayed flight at the Cisco Brew Pub location at Logan Airport in Boston, MA. I didn’t take notes while having this, but I remember this was an exceptionally good lager with a nice dry finish and light hay notes. Hope to have this again.

Overall a clean crisp drinkable lager. Bought this for non craft drinkers so I wouldn’t get stuck with a bunch of Miller/Bud lying around. It worked for them as well as me, nice easy drinking summer beer

12oz bottle pours a clear golden/yellow with a small white head. Aroma of bready caramel malts, some grains, with slight earthy grassy hops. Grains and malts dominate with an off putting metallic/mineral bitterness followed by some grassy hops on the finish. Drinkable.

VoodooBear (42) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 12 oz. green can, served in a Samuel Adams pint glass. Appearance: Two finger white colored head. Cloudy yellow color. Smell: It has a complex, earthy and musky smell. Malts and hops are the dominant scents. There are grain and herbal notes in there too. Taste: There’s a good balance between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness (which are the main flavors), with a herbal touch in the background. Mouthfeel: Creamy, light, and easy to drink. There’s not a lot of carbonation and it finishes dry. Overall: It’s a very flavorful and complex beer. While it is refreshing and easy to drink, this lager is way more complicated than the horde of ales that define the summer season. This is either good or bad, depending on what you’re expecting from the brew. If you’re tired of the typical summer ale and thirst for something different, it’s a good thing. If you just want something simple, quenching and refreshing for the summer months, it’s bad. Either way, no one who appreciates beer would have a hard time enjoying it all the same.
