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.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2010
On tap at a dive bar in Brattleboro, VT. Golden body with large head. Nose is quite sweet. Taste is malty and somewhat metallic. Wasn’t too impressed at all. Turned me off.

dogfish120love (1020) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2010
The aroma is very faint yet consists of cereal, hay, and leaves. The appearance is a golden with hints of orange. The flavor is light in sweetness, lightly bitter, and somewhat strange.

mansquito (3758) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2009
So basically, this beer does not look like much. It pours a pretty boring color, with a rather mediocre head. Then the aroma ain’t much either. But the taste, I thought was rather good. Yeasty all up the front, with a few hoppy bites along the way. Overall, it is really damn refreshing after skiing for a while. Frankly, I think the 19th percentile rating is a severe under-rating (premium lager is of course not the best style out there, but this is one of the style’s better points).

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Basic gold color and a sweet malty aroma (like corn flakes). Decent flavor with a little bit of a harshness that swims upstream compared with the rest of the beer. Not as drinkable as some of the cheaper ones out there and not as complex as the higher end ones either. This is sort of all over the board.

ChainGangGuy (4448) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2009
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, deep hued golden body with a foamy, lasting, white head. Smell: Simple, sweetish malted barley with some spicy, lemony hops. There’s a caustic, pungent note present that, like a crusty scab, I can’t help but pick at. It’s kind of vomitesque. I asked for the Vermont Lager, not the Vomit Lager. Good grief. Taste: Light pale maltiness with a minimal amount of sweetness. Hints of lemon and spice from the hops as well as a modest amount of bitterness. Curious acidity and some unpleasant off-tastes plow through the taste and lasts into the "where’s my glass of water" finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Gack!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of sweet malt and perfumy. Taste yields some sweet malt, some fruity hints and a crisp, grassy finish.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
Pale golden beer with a thin white head. Aroma is light. Just a touch of soft pale malt. Fairly clean, but terribly underhopped. Sort of a non-descript pale lager... nothing really worth mentioning here.

Tasted at 4th annual St. Bridget’s beer fest. Light grain aroma with hints of hops. Clear dark golden color with a small white head. Mild sweet beginning with a hop taste finish and not much bitterness.
