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.

Bottle. Pours a golden pale body with a rocky white head. Sweet malty body, grassy hoppiness with a light lemon and metallic flavor. Not so good.

slighty hazy gold under a fluffy white head. nice crisp lemony hoppy aroma. the lemony hops carry through into the flavor. light, crisp, refreshing. everything a good lager should be. very impressed!

It has a faint hoppy smell to it and your average golden color. Has a little hoppyness in the flavor but also a bitterness to go with it. After taste leaves a bitter, almost like a lead flavor, in the mouth. Overall it’s not a bad beer but I don’t think that I’ll end up buying this one again.

From bottle. Disappointing offering. Watery, uninteresting, slightly sour. No finish. Not one to repeat.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2008
Objectively speaking: A simplistic and inoffensive pale lager
I like: Clean flavour profile. Soft herbal hoppiness.
I dislike: Rather dull grainy malt lineage. The key to this type of beer is to expose the taster to a trove of freshness and this is not quite managed here although no signs of age are noticeable either. Quick-finished.

Not much better than a BMC lager here. Poured to a golden yellow with medium-thick white head that dissipated quickly and left little lacing. Aroma was grainy with little else to offer, and the flavor was no better. Not even a good session beer. Not much good to say about this one.

Had an Altbier from Otter before this and I was pleased with it. Unfortunately, I cant say the same thing about this one. Offensive and the hops are a bit off. This is not properly classified/

A premium lager???? No way. This beer had a small aroma (maybe some hops). The body was clear orange-yellow. The taste was ’nasty ass.’

My least favorite of the Otter Creek beers. Great for getting drunk though.

Not a tremendously distinctive experience. Medium yellow/brown in color; average taste.
