Summertime requires a crisp, refreshing brew to beat the heat. If you cant 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.

thanks to firemoose15, i would have thought this was a Helles based upon the sweet caramel and grass aroma, which were mirrored in the taste almost with nothing else. there was a little bit of hoppy bitterness at the very end, but i thought this was a nice beer with a very high drinkability value.

120z Bottle: Ugh. Smells like a greasy Greek-style pizza crust, with a little water, and a faint hint of spice. Smell is so putrid I can barely put the glass to my mouth. Cloudy golden color. Quickly diminishing, small, white head. No lacing. Flavor, now that is a hard one. I guess slightly grassy and bitter. Thin and metalic. Watery. Worst Otter Creek beer I have had; Id rather drink a Miller Light.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Bottle. Poured like Budweiser ... check that ... Bud Light. Aroma was off. I guess theres some malts, but I only got a whiff of socks when I lifted this to my mouth. Luckily it didnt taste like feet. Light flavor, some fruit, some malt and some chalk. Overall, not very good.

This aint 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!

I thought this beer was quite tasty. Poured yellow/golden with a creamy white head. The head retention was a bit short. Smell had citrus, lemon and caramel. Same deal with the taste. The citrus and lemon came through nicely at the end. A solid beer for the last days of summer.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Bottle - Poured a pale yellow in color with a fairly thin white head that diminished quickly. Aroma was of sweet malt and fruity hops. Flavor had plenty of malt that nicely balanced the hefty hop hit. Finished with a slightly sweet malt and lastly faint bitterness. OK, but not real distintive. Worth repeating.

Holdwine (1214) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Average lager. Light head with some sweet notes. Hops jumps out, maybe too strongly. Otherwise touches of caramel and roasted malt. Too carbonated. Fruity.

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Bottle. Bottled on 01/26/05 and batch #1664. Small white head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, lacing was very sparse, carbonated, slightly cloudy, and a pale yellow hue. Aroma was malty, hoppy and sweet. Malty and sweet flavor. Tingly palate. Light body.

argo0 (14022) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 31, 2005
(12oz bottle, bottled 3/22/05) Small white head atop a clear apple juice body. Taste is medium sweet, bread, some fruity, light caramel. Taste is medium sweet, bread, some caramel, apricot. Watery light-medium body, some cripsness. No bitterness or aftertaste.

Botte. Clear gold pour. Malty sweet aroma. More sweet malt and caramel and nutty flavors, and clean slightly-bitter finish. No skunky or off flavors in this bottle. Decent drinking lager imo.
