COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summertime requires a crisp, refreshing brew to beat the heat. If you can’t be soaking up the lakeside sun or cannonballing into your favorite swimming hole, then pop the top on our Vermont Lager and enjoy the next best thing.

Our Green Mountain homage to the classic European-style lager, we used German Pilsen malt and, in true Vermont fashion, a whole lot of Noble hops to give off a big hop aroma that makes this summer seasonal a real head-turner.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle. Pale golden color with minimal head. Robust wet fruity aroma, mostly malts. Flavor is slightly comparable to Sam Adams lager, with a little less body. Crisp and balanced, a decent summertime lager.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2005
12 oz bottle obtained as a bonus from a trade with Firemoose15. Thanks Mel! Pours golden pale with a fair white head that laces the edge of the glass. Aroma is malty but a touch of skunk in my bottle.. Odd the bottle wasn’t green. Flavor is light malts, a touch of corn and some light honey and a touch of hops. On the palate this is light and carbonated. Refreshing on a summer day but nothing outstanding here

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2005
Blonde pale, peu de mousse de couleur blanche. Arômes et flaveurs rendent le plus intense hommage au diacetyl, monopolisant et gaspillant complètement l’expérience. Beurre en putréfaction, butterscotch…Extrêmement sucré en bouche, ne semble pas atténué correctement. Est-ce que le produit est supposé être comme ça ? ...probablement pas. Une vraie horreur! Lorsqu’une budweiser est meilleure, je me sauve en courant. Mole’s eye cafe, Brattleboro, 22 Mai 2005.

waeltzy (53) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Not a terrible lager. Not quite what I expected for the price. Light amber to yellow color. Quite drinkable. Some basic hop flavor with a standard pour.

A decent lager tho a little watery. No harsh aftertaste, however. Drinkable, but nothing remarkable.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Bright yellow with average bottle pour head. Nose of hops with a touch of yeast. Hoppy flavor with some malt. Finish was a little harsh on the hop end.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - APR 28, 2005
clear yellow gold with lots of fizz. thick foamy white head. aroma is damp dead grass, some white sugar. lots of carbonation, dry/sour malt flavor. faint hop. like a pils.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2005
A very crisp and fresh tasting lager. Generally lagers are nothing to go crazy over, but when compared amongst a group of lagers, this is very good.

ClarkVV (4216) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2005
12/07/2004 bottle, batch 1629, consumed 3/30/2005. Great aroma as I pop the cap. Soft, heathery hops with light tangerine notes, vanilla, honey and just a light trace of corn (not adjuncts, just a byproduct of the malt). Clear, copper-gold body, with a thin white head that recedes to a ring. Flavor is cornmeal, lightly sour yeast, touch of soap and clean mineral water. Not much else going on, though I wanted to like this. The body is ample, though. Medium to medium-light, fluffy. Engaging yet easygoing carbonation. A bit low on the pH with too much sour/acid coming through. I guess I’m getting tougher on lagers though. . .as this stuff really isn’t that bad, IMHO.
