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.

Mixed spice, dry and yeasty. No particular flavor to write home about. A weird beer.

jimhilt (2414) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Pours with a one-finger bubbly white head that fades quickly leaving hardly any lace. Clear light amber color. Light-medium bodied. Nose is not skunky like the majors. Medium carbonation. Starts crisp and finishes hoppy, no a bad lager. $1.55 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 In the bottle only 3 weeks. Pours light gold dead clear, light head. Smell is modest, I get mainly green tea. Taste is full, lots of malt, balanced bitterness, modest hopping. Supposedly OG 1048 with 26 IBUs. I get a trace of dimethylsulfide in the nose.

sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Batch #1505, bottled 3/18/2004. Well, I gotta say this is pretty sad stuff. I detect some nondescript fruitiness and just barely a caramel hint in the nose. It has a thin, white head and just a slightly darker urine color than, say, a Budweiser. In fact, it only tastes marginally better than Bud, too. It's fizzy like soda. There are some hops at the end but nothing to rave about whatsoever. I will try a few more OCs soon, but from what I recall of the ones I've had, this is the worst.

Lubiere (10160) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2004
Clear yellow beer with white head. Nice biscuity aroma, which comes in the mouth too, with very balanced sgharp german hops. Good body fro a lager.

CapFlu (4549) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2004
(Draught) Lactic and hoppy nose. Pours a large white head and a golden body. Slight malt comes out in the flavour though it was on the thin and lifeless side of things.

raymow (821) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Decent. Has a malty aroma and a pale golden coloring. Tastes like an average lager type. Refreshing and drinkable, but nothing all that remarkable.

surfmurf (85) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Nice overall aroma and appearance. A bit weak in flavor reminded me of a lighter beer but without the aftertaste. A nice bite at the finish.

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - JAN 10, 2004
Light foul, farty nose; gold-yellow color; low head. Medium bodied malt base and not very hoppy but an OK balance.

TheBeerGod (5287) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Pours a browned yellow with a tall white head. Nose is odd. Not straight hops or malt dominated but some off aromas. The taste wasn't much better. Some weakened malt and hops along with a molded grain tongue. Finished with some of the same off flavors, albeit weakened during the aftertaste. OK at best.
