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.

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