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.

tommy8768 (120) - Litlle Compton, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Very pale amber color with not much head. More malty than most lagers, does have a strange tea like taste as previously mentioned. Most Otter Creek products seem to have this taste. Better than macro swill but still just average.

I swear this beer had a weird tea flavor and smell - very strange in a bad way. Not a rebuy for me - but who am I. cereal, golden, clear, sparkling, frothy, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, thin feel, lively,

HighlanderOne (1237) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Poured from bottle. Fresh malt smell. Looks like your average lager. OK, but kinda light on the flavor, good hop/malt blend, extremely drinkable. Finished OK. Nothing fantastic here, but a decent drinking beer.

Another lager. Drinkable but I wouldn’t pick this over others out there. More malty than hoppy but the flavor isn’t that strong. By the end of the bottle, I couldn’t taste it that well. Of course, that’s better than the American junk macros that have no flavor even in the first sip.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Pours a light amber color. Aromas of roast malts, hops. Flavor is head and shoulders above most lagers. Nice hop and malt flavors.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle: Dull golden, hazy, minor white sudsy head, sparce lacing, very light carbonation.   Sour nose, slightly lactic and grainy.   Immediate sourness on the tongue, mash tun & graininess as well.   There is a sligth sweetness too.   Body and mouthfeel are average, at best.   Finishes with a bit of overcooked vegetable.   Not bad, but nothing spectacular.   Wished Otter Creek could put out brews more to the caliber of their Stove Pipe Porter.   Thanks danem for sharing!
