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.

fishonmyplane (488) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Light yellow color, medium white head. Medium to high carbonation. Nice bitterness with some spruce & grassy hops. Tastes like a real Czech pils. Malts are bready. A nice session beer.

jrodooo5 (1081) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Decent pale golden pour w/ a thin white head & good lacing. The aroma is mild & kind of soapy. The taste is fairly harsh w/out much flavoring. I can get it down but this isn’t something I would want to have again!

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, yellow with a nice size head, and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain and hops. Taste is semi sweet, grain some malts combined with a very nice bitterness from hops. Quite refreshing, very drinkable.

Cloudy straw yellow color with white head. Aroma of lemon and grass. Grain, hint of pepper with lemon. Pretty decent pilsner.

guzzler67 (1529) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Bright gold appearance with an average size white head and a fair amount of lacing. Grain field aroma dotted with citrusy hops. Bitter, dry, acidic taste modestly balanced by biscuit-like malts with a crisp, peppery, herbal aftertaste. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel leads to a short lived finish.

Leighton (11900) - 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,

BeerFanDan17 (1019) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - AUG 15, 2014
A very bitter lager with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Hints of grapefruit and citrus zest. Not particularly malty for a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madnorwegian (63) - FRANCE - AUG 12, 2014
Definitely more pilsner than lager, lots (too much?) of refreshing bitterness but I find it a bit too much for summer beer.

AdamJackson (2885) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
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

shrubber85 (7970) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Light barley malt and herbal quinine aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet barley malt and mildly bitter herbal flavor. Okay.

Beerathon (1287) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2014
They nailed the style, definitely tastes like a German Pils. Bit skunky, crisp malt bill, slight hoppiness. It’s alright, considering it’s a lager.
