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.

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

kyzr (1152) - 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.

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 (3892) - 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.

Poured goldsih yellow, with a good white head. Floraly aroma with some yeast notes. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. This would make a great summer brew, ball game, hammock, and some of these, fresh cut grass...

scoobyluv (504) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2004
thin head but overall, a very impressive lager. nice florally aroma although the same golden color as most lagers but it has a nice hop palate. this beer is very smooth and quite enjoyable. it’s a nice subtle beer that i can enjoy on an evening of relaxing

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Appearance: slightly hazy, dull orange/ high yella color, with a fine collar of froth atop. Aroma: sweet, almost corny, light, smooth, soft, vegetal, and slowly discernable hop content. Taste: hops play lightly and nicely on the palate for a time before fading fast, but return with each subsequent sip. Light in body, slightly buttery in the flavor, but overall good in taste, good in drinkability, quite an acquittable lager, indeed.

00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Pours a golden yellow color with a decent white head. Taste like just about every lager ive had only slightly better. Not something i care to drink again though.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is lightly malty malty and grassy. Taste has notes of grass and grain. Moderate use of hops. Lightly malty and sweet with a hint of lemon. Medium body. Eh.
