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.

The hopping is perfect, giving just the right amount of refreshing aroma in the aftertaste. It finishes beautifully. A crisp clean lager that Iíd drink any day. Iím perplexed by the existing ratings, donít believe them. Try this beer or you will never know what youíre missing. Even among other craft brewed all malt beers, this stands out for its enjoyability, and isnít that what beer is all about?

Comes in the obligatory 12 oz brown bottle..simple label. Nice appearance for this lager golden yellow with a small but persistant pure white head..nice lacing. I loved the aroma of this lager..one of the best of its class..nice spicy hoppiness..more than balanced by a a yummy toffee malt aroma..beautiful . this is a full flavoured malty style lager..no pilsner here..and i love it the full sweetness of the malt is replaced eventually by a nice residual hop bitterness. Very nice creamy smooth feeling on the tongue.

For a US brewed lager, this is pretty decent. Medium gold color - slightly amber. Nice white, foamy head - good carbonation in the glass. Nice malty body with a good dose of hops. Nice lager flavor - no off flavors detectable. Not an exciting style of beer, but this is an above average american lager.

Pours a lightly cloudy golden in color, with a medium sized white head, mostly diminishes, leaving a fine film of lace. Aroma is loaded with biscuit malt, backed up with a good herbal hop presence. Flavor is pretty much the same, with a bit more of the hops noticed on the tongue. Medium body, very crisp and clean, semi-dry finish. A very nice lager.

This ainít your typical lager beer. This Vermont lager has such a clean finish. The water quality shines through this craft beer. Water is the most important component and this lager taps the Brita Filter! Kiss a beaver! 100th rating!

Draft. Hazy pale yellow color, fluffy white head, spider web lacing. Aroma of rising sourdough bread, white pepper, straw. Taste is peppery bitter lemon and straw. Nice.

Pale muted orange. Creamy white head. Light lavender sweet honey and corn nose. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitter orange peel, sweet pie crust and astringent bitter finish. I still like it quite a bit. A less juicy humulus lager

Leighton (13826) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle at home in CT - picked up in VT. Pours crystal clear yellow with a foamy white head. Clean cereal on the nose with hints of corn, grass and lemon rind. Light-medium sweet flavor with biscuity malts, further cereal, some bitter hay and grass, faint lemon zest, crackers. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with nice balance, further crackers and biscuits, slight dry and grassy bitterness. Very drinkable lager,

Poured a nice golden yellow, with a white foamy head. The first few sips I had a hard time getting past - it tended toward the bitter taste I associated with beers I drank in college or high school. But over time it did develop some complexity of taste, and was a very enjoyable beer which I enjoyed. A definite step up from the big three - more body, more flavor, nicely hopped. Definitely detected some fruit.
