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.

hopscotch (9843) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Deep, clear, light golden lager. Large, frothy, off-white head. Gone in a flash. The aroma is of toffee and straw; vanilla and pistascios. Lightly malty and balanced with slightly bitter hops. There is some clover in there as well. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish!

Drake (9468) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Had this many years ago at the brewery during a lapse in rating, so it’s cool to see it again. 12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. Decent head retention. Strong skunk and not much else from the brown bottle. Maybe some pale malts. I notice the best by date is back in April, which is funny since this has been on sale here for only about a week. The taste is pale malts, slightly buttery, and grassy hops. Thin bodied, lingering bitterness.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 30/09/2005 Golden coloured and hoppy. Nutty flavoured dry finish.
