BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Otter Creek Brewing
Vermont, United States

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.

Reviewed from notes. Shared by Andrew - thanks.

A: Pours a hazed pale yellow under a 1/2-inch thick white head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Fruity and floral, tropicals (passion fruit) is noted.

T: Citrusy and yeasty, well balanced, clean.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry and citrusy.

O: Refreshingly nice and easy drinking. Well done.

A very pale yellow body, with a touch of haze. Steady carbonation streams. Topped by five billowing snow white fingers of loose bubbles of all sizes. Good dense lace.

Aroma of bright fresh citrus fruit, backed by some classic pils-ish fresh hay/grass.

Nice sweet beginning, a good sweet with some depth, not pixie stickish. Fruity middle. Nice bitter snap.

Light smooth with just the right prickliness.

The taste doesn't quite match the aroma, it's a bit short on the fruit side, but that is probably a style point in the relatively new IPL category. Easy drinking without the sense of "something's missing" that comes with session IPAs. Definitely worth trying.
