Otter Creek “Vermont Lager”

Otter Creek Vermont-Lager-20235-1Based out of Vermont, and recovering from their brewery burning down, I decided to give them a shot. It’s a medium bodied lager but will be serving as the “lighter” beer option opposite Smutty’s “Robust Porter”.

It’s also worth noting that in last month (Dec. ’09) they were purchased by Long Trail Brewery, who is owned by Anheuser-Busch (or was it Coors?).

The beer has a decent rating of “B” on Beer Advocate with 65 reviews. I haven’t had their beer in ages but I remember them being pretty good.

5.0% ABV

Here’s what Otter Creek writes about it;

A classic European style lager. We take the time to brew this beer as a true lager should be brewed. And it’s well worth the wait!
You can enjoy the drinkability of this light-gold, refreshing beer with friends at the pub or at home after a long day.
OG: 1048, IBU 26

Kicked sometime mid-March after approximately 2.5 months.  Needless to say, it was not a popular beer.
