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.

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.

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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2004
Pale gold with decent white fully-diminishing head. Mild hops in the aroma and flavour and some light bitterness. An unexciting thisrt-quencher.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Poured a nice golden yellow, with a white foamy head. The first few sips I had a hard time getting past - it tended toward the bitter taste I associated with beers I drank in college or high school. But over time it did develop some complexity of taste, and was a very enjoyable beer which I enjoyed. A definite step up from the big three - more body, more flavor, nicely hopped. Definitely detected some fruit.

I remember a recent RB poll asking if you knew a beer sucked, would you drink it anyway, just to rate it. Thats the thought that went through my mind as I opened this puppy up. Looks like budweiser, smells like dough. Head settled a bit too quick for my liking. Can ya tell I’m stalling till this warms up a bit? Not bad as lagers go but this isn’t far off from the Big 3 either. Otter Creek ought to be ashamed of themselves. Thats all I’ve got to say about this stuff.

Bottle, from Julio’s. Bottled 7/12/04. Good nose, biscuity,yeasty,toffee,fruity maybe apple or pear. Clear pale yellow gold color. Small head that faded quickly. Sweet flavors, same as aroma, but with a little bitterness. Thin body, kinda creamy. Clean drier finish. Some linguring fruity maltiness. Not bad. Easy drinking. A definate lawnmower.Give to someone who is ready to try more than the big three.
