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.

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 (323) - 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.

Cornfield (5512) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Uncomplicated and quite quaffable. It has a yellow/gold body with a steady stream of small bubbles that support a tall, sustained foamy head. Gobs of lace. The aroma and taste were much the same, grainy with a light sweetness and a soft grassy hopping. Nice warm weather drink.

Almost clear gold beer with a small white head. Minerally crisp palate. Thin malt and horrible soapy floralness. Dry finish. God awful rubbish.

Rune (8346) - Tromsř, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2013
ľ pint bottle bought from the foreign bottle bar (BSF) at the Great British Beer festival in August this year. Dense, frothy white head with a lasting layer. Spotty lacing. Grassy hops on the nose. Modest flavours of oily hops, lemon and earthy malts. Subdued, dry fruit bitter tail. Refreshing (at home, Tromsř 26.10.2013).

PorterPounder (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Bull Run - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with a fluffy snow white head that leaves a thick film of lacing. Aroma has some light grainy accents, some mown hay. Flavor is smooth and balanced with some grainy notes, some buttery accents, some sunflower seeds. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. All around excellent - just not in any one single aspect.

BVery (6829) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Light orange pour with a slight haze to it, and a small wispy white head. Light and clean, bread, crust, touch of hop on the nose. Kind of a laid back beer and a laid back style, but it seems to be pretty well made. I wouldn’t be buying 6-packs, but I wouldn’t turn one down hanging out on the lake either.

portableparty (1943) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2013
On tap at Bricks. Pours gold with a wispy white film. Aroma has some malt grain and hidden lemongrass. Tastes of lemongrass grainy malt and just a slight bit of bitterness. Palate is thin clean and dry.
