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.

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

25 oz bottle ink stamped on bottom 174 19:44 1122-pours a foamy, four finger+ reducing to rocky with patches clinging to the side of the glass offwhite head. Color is hazy yellow with effervescence. Aroma is musty, grain. Taste is sweet, fruity, musty, a muted tanginess. Different than the standard for a lager style. A mellow, fruity Duvel.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2004
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Bottle... Lightly hazy, deep golden lager with a large, creamy, white head. Citrusy nose with notes of honey and lemon. Fruity and malty flavor, but well-balanced. Light-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Medium-length, dry, lightly bitter finish. I’m a fan of this one. Not my style, but well made.
