COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden in color, this low ABV lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with an aromatic American hop aroma. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavorful and drinkable for the lightest beer we brew. We dub this beer a "Session Lager," as we once again brew a lager in a beer style of its own.

A rather boring beer, but still much better than the commercial alternatives.

Clear yellow to orange body with a medium white head. Aroma is malt, hops, citrus, some caramel. Taste is sweet with mild bitterness. Soft carbonation, light to medium body, long sweet finish.

mathieuc (1513) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Pours an ultra clear light golden with a thin white head that won’t stay or leave lacing. Nose is of citrusy hops, light nuts or at least husk and generally a mix between fruits and grains. Taste is moderately bitter and not really sweet while still being malty. Fresh cereals, citrus, tasty! Body is light and carbonat moderate, sessionable for sure! Pretty sure I haven’t had a better premium lager lately or even this year, these Jack’s Abby guys know their stuff!

I’m not experienced in session lagers, but this seems like a good one. Pours nicely with a fine head that lasts. Seems well balanced. Mild and light. Hint of citrus with something else creamy inside. Moderately carbonated.

A nice offering from Jack’s Abby. I am trying more of their beer, but guess I’m just not a lager person. I appreciate the work that went into this brew, and it is well crafted. Great balance between the bready malt and hops.

McNeillR (1328) - SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Pale golden, slight haze and a slight head. Light lemon, corkboard. Scratchy enough malt, fairly disruptive carbonation and low density bitterness. Passable enough, not overly offensive.

Bottle, ScoIrl tasting
