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.

THOUGHTS: A trade withe my brother. Probably wouldn’t have bouth this on my own and I probably won’t try it again. If I wast a lager I’ll have a Sam Adams. Not awful, but nothing special. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium yellow with nice carbonation threads and an average to large, sudsy, white head that slowly diminished and kept a thin cap leaving a fair, crytal looking lace.The aroma was lightly malty and light to moderately grassy hops with light yeast. The initial flavor was lighlty sweet and bitter, while the finish was moderately bitter and sour with an average duration. The flavor was lightly malty moving to a more bitter hop finsh with a little more malt coming back in the throat. The light body was a little dry but mostly watery with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

clear dark gold, wispy white head, streaks of lace, sweet candied malt aroma with light floral hops, light bitter malt flavor, just a touch of sweetness, bitterness grows into a long bitter finish, decent example of the style

May 2005 - Poured light golden brown with nice head and lacing. Most notable is that this is probably the hoppiest lager ever. I’d say it’s unbalanced, but I guess that’s a matter of opinion. If you’re a hophead going for a lager with some bite, this might be for you. I wish I could have tasted the malty/fruity/toffee tastes others have mentioned.

Pretty much down the middle. Notes of malt on the nnose and larger greass like notes of malt on the mouthfeel with a bit of a bruned edge. It drinks dry and crisp and the finish has that odd burned aftertaste.

12 oz Bottle-Poured a clear golden/copper color w/a moderate foamy off white head. Slight hopped aroma. Really just not a whole lot here, some hops, grass, a little sweet. Inoffensive but uninspiring. Somewhat dry, short finish. I’d drink it if someone was giving them away, but don’t bother to seek it out.

Pour from bottle with a golden color, and lots of head. Head leaves a little lacing. Nice strong flavor, not the best finish.

Braudog (6719) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2007
From a bottle: This poured a crystal clear golden hue with a thin white and poofy head. The aroma is light, with biscuity, malt-based tones. This drinks smooth and refreshing, with a definite malt-cookie basis. The finishing bitterness is nice, more or less in a Germanic pilsner vein. Good brew if you’re in the mood for a mellow drinker, this would go well with some stronger charactered foods. (#2682, 2/4/2007)

12oz bottle-pours a foamy white head with some lacing and yellow/gold color. Aroma is sweet grain. Taste is sweet grain, secondary hops bite. (medicinal?) OK carbonation.

Dorwart (2590) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Thin head which disappeared when I turned around. Minimal carbonation. Light sweet malty corn aroma. Not very good . Light roastyness. Color is a light dirty brown. Nasty roasty and bitter flavor. Blech. I am really starting to not like Otter Creak brews. Finish is dry and bitter with some harsh roastyness. Don’t waster your time.

Pale amber color, mostly like most other lagers out there. A little spicy, which was not what I expected. Eh, just okay.
