COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summertime requires a crisp, refreshing brew to beat the heat. If you canít 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.

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 wouldnít pick this over others out there. More malty than hoppy but the flavor isnít that strong. By the end of the bottle, I couldnít taste it that well. Of course, thatís better than the American junk macros that have no flavor even in the first sip.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - 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 (6300) - 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!

(12 oz bottle: Obtained 05-Jan-06 in trade with hopscotch, thanks Eric!) Sweet, very grainy and husky, and mildly bitter, this isnít all that pleasant a beer. While the nose shows that same sweet husky character, itís also very oddly fruity for a lager, kind of a like grapes actually. Light-medium body is decent, without much carbonation or hops, it shows no verve or vitality on the palate. Medium-dark straw in color and slightly hazy, there are precious few carbonation bubbles rising through the beer. Plus, the medium-size off-white head settles to a film and then small ring fairly quickly, so this beer isnít even visually attractive. Sampled for rating purposes, but after tasting this, I wonít be sampling it again.
