BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Otter Creek Brewing
Vermont, United States
ottercreekbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.75%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our spring seasonal offering brewed with 100 percent positive vibrations and single-hopped with Citra hops. The presence of the Citra hop is elevated by a clean fermenting lager yeast that allows the subtle Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts to lay a crisp, bready foundation. The citrus and tropical fruit character of the Citra hop comes from kettle additions followed by a huge dose of ‘em again in the fermenter.

Shorty review. Undated bottle. Ginormous head with lots of sticky lace. Uh oh. Pale gold. Take a sniff. Yup, citra hops have faded out and it's all Pils and other malts now. Taste is a little bit better, as the malts predominate but some of the citra remains and you get some grapefruit, mango, and lime. Malts are dead-on for a lager, though; this is better than a malted-over IPA. More medium of a mouthfeel than you might expect, medium carbonation, balance off. Probably is better fresh or on tap.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is sweet bready malts and citrusy/grassy hops. The taste is bursting with crisp flavor, a lot of sweet pale malts up front and citrusy hops (bitter grapefruit and lime zest most notably) in the finish.
