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.

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.

Bready malt aromas ans some slight nutty grassy aromas. White foamy light head and golden very slight orange body. Dry malts, some hop bitterness and bready metallic taste. Crisp and dry on the palate.

Emeister84 (1410) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2013
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.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2013
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 (14626) - 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.

Aurelius (4572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Malty eurolager aroma, lightly sweet. Clear, very pale. Ok label, standard US longneck. Crisp bittering, a bit of citrus pith, dry, slightly tangy. Long bitter finish, biscuity mouthfeel, though generally crisp. Just OK. ABC Liquors, Betton.

nuplastikk (4908) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2013
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan. Foamy, steady, glass lacing head. Bready, medium body. Spicy noble hop finish. A little more of an American feel than a German..bigger malts, bigger hop bills, and a less sublime lagering tones. Earthy, fruity character brings to mind English Ale as much as German Lager...maybe my palate is off. Either way, a nice enough session beer.

mkgrenwel (598) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Somewhere between straw and copper. Bone white head. Aroma of pear, malt and a bit of corn. Not too far off a pale lager. Light noble hop spice. Flavor is slightly sweet malt, and that's about it. No hops or any complexity really. Maybe a touch of noble spice in the back. Crisp and spotless. He more I drink the more I feel the bitterness lingering on my palate. I would love the malt to be a bit dryer. Not bad for the style though.
