COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created exclusively for RS Lipman Company.

Great Friends, Great Beer.
Hap Motlow, of the legendary Jack Daniel family from Lynchburg, TN used to tell his friend Harry Lipman "just alike Jack Daniels, a great beer starts with the best ingredients. good water, choice grains, and high grade yeast...brewed with integrity" As the first distributor of Jack Daniels after the repeal of prohibition, Harry passed this lesson down through generations of Lipmans, who remain in the industry to this day. Hap & Harry’s honors the friendship these two men shared over a half a century ago. Cheers to great friends and great beer!

Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a note of sweet stale corn as well as musty bread and no hop character. Flavor was similar with a stale corn note and musty sweet bread. Thin.

Bottle. Not very good. Gold color, with some head. Taste like any other American made lager, not very original. Aroma, also not very original. Definitely not the Jack Daniels of beers.

Bottle. Pours pale gold with a very small white head. No lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, grain, grassy hops. Flavor is grain and grass. Slightly maltier macro lager with a cool label and fashionable tie-in.

Tasted from 11.2oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. It poured a boring clear straw color with short-lived white foam. Aromas and flavors typical of crappy adjunct lager. Harsh, bad. This was a very obvious marketing tie-in with Jack Daniels whiskey. I really can’t understand why they would want to cheapen their image this way. Guh!

Clear yellow. Fizzy. Tastes like fermented corn....tastes very cheap. This is awful.

This is a review of the 6.5% "Original Gravity" 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. Odd size for an American microbrewery. Pours a clear straw yellow with a tiny fizzy head that quickly fades to nothing. Absolutely no lacing at all. Aromas is full of cereal grain with a little bit of toasted caramel. No hops are detectable. Taste is toasted malt and cereal grain Not much in the way of hop flavor with some light bitterness coming in towards the finish. Also some alcohol detectable in the finish. Mouthfeel is very watery. Overall this beer just doesn’t do it for me. Some nice elements are their but none of it really comes together. Flavors are too bland and honestly, this beer doesn’t really need to be 6.5%. The higher strength really detracts because the alcohol is not hidden at all. Not something I will pick up again.

edgallow (2001) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2012
12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt and nothing else. Taste is hard for me to describe, really odd. I will have to try it on tap somewhere.

Listed as Hap & Harry’s Lynchburg Lager at the Bound’ry in Nashville, TN. Some sort of spice in the aroma: Christmas-like. A bit dry and almost chalky. This is just odd. Doesn’t quite taste right but hard for to identify why.

12 oz. bottle from jbrana- thanks, Justin! Pours a clear gold color with a surprisingly small head and a surprisingly deep hue to the gold. Way more color than a typical pale lager. The aroma is corny, grainy, and grassy, with some crackers and sugar sweetness. The flavor is basically the same. Nothing offensive or interesting here. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. A little more body, less carbonation than most in the style. Fine. I’d reach for it over Budweiser or any similar alternatives. Also, great label.
