COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Summer of Love was fun they say, but now we’re living in the SUMMER OF LAGER! "Lager" means "to wait a wicked long time until it’s ready." We brewed it in the fall, aged it all winter, then sampled it in the spring. Then again, and again, until finally we decided to share. Hope you like it.

A great refreshing beer. For a lager this beer is full of hops. Not too much but just the right balance. Love the label, nice summer theme. Grab a 750ml and share it with a buddy or do it alone. Another great beer from Nantucket island!

Pours a beautiful golden with almost no head. Slight floral hoppiness. This beer is extremely crisp and refreshing. Probably one of the best summer seasonals I have tried yet this season.

Golden yellow/straw appearance with a slight chill haze. Bubbly white head. Moderate hop aroma that is akin to taking a deep breath in field of tall grass and wild flowers. The hop flavor blankets your entire palate. Not as carbed as I was led to believe (but then I made sure I chilled this puppy real good), it was, in fact pleasingly subtle. A very full bodied malt profile as well. You guys make great beers, so how about getting them off that sand bar and down to Jersey!

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2005 This was such a pain in the neck to track down, but it was definitely worth finding as it’s by far one of this brewer’s best offerings. Pours gold and cloudy with a lazy but persistent white head. Tastes and smells of lemons, lime, grapefruit and just about every tisane or citrus fruit you can think of. Extremely complex with a very nice albeit on the tarte end finish.

shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2006
Clear golden pour with a huge chunky, frothy head. Extensive lacing. Aroma is lemony and grassy. Very fresh smelling. Flavor is fresh, wheaty, citrusy. Delicious and fresh. A wonderfuly beautiful beer.

4.2
TAR (2802) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Golden straw. Fat, one-inch layer of pasty white foam. Sharp grassy hop aroma with notes of lemon cake, white pepper, and minerals. Perfectly airy with perfume, glaze, and toasted pale malt whispers. Pillowy carbonation. Soft and slippery on the palate. Explosive flavors of lemon pulp balanced by immense hop spice. Thoroughly soft and floral, yet with a firm snap of leather and crackery malt nuances, midway. Extremely delicate toasted malt underlay with surfacing chardonnay grape acidity, lemon balm, and some brushing floral hop coarseness. Finishes with less hop poignancy than expected, along with a waning dryness and pale malt flavor, but everlastingly flowery and melonlike, which provides more than enough to hold your attention throughout the glass. Overall, an elegantly crafted, bottle conditioned lager, with an appearance and aroma to die for. Just needs a bolder malt structure to help mask the slight acidity, along with more dryness and assertive hop bitterness. Otherwise, this is perfect. Thanks, PsychProf!!
