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.

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.

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.

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.

Aromas of bread crust and a slight nuttiness. Clear orange-gold with a mostly lingering, small white head. Dry, bready, and grassy. Light bodied, crisp, and with a clean, hoppy finish.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of herbal and citrus hops with some toasted grain. The taste is grain, citrus, tea, herbal hops. Medium bodied. Solid.

oldcrankee (52) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Nice low hop aroma. Tasted like a flat domestic lager (Budweiser), although much smother. Easy to drink.

harrisoni (14992) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle bought at GBBF and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. It’s a half decent lemony citrusy lager. Good aroma, good mouthfeel, good lemon. Very drinkable. Good beer.
