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.

tfontana (597) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is mild cereal from the Munich and Pilsner malts. Appearance is hazy light yellow with nice sparkle, quickly-dissipating 1/2 finger width white head with nice lacing. Taste is light malt, German yeast. The hops seem to contribute more to the bitterness than flavor. Palate is light bodied with average texture, lively carbonation and dry finish. Overall, true to style as very drinkable but not very flavorful or memorable.

Bulk_Carrier (3539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 14, 2015
This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a slight hazy bronzed yellow color with a fast rising carbonation rising to fill a two finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Lacing was mainly speckled in a messy sort of way. The smell started off with sweet freshly cut grass running into slight sweet citrusy notes. The taste was moderately grassy sweet. A dry sweet semi-grassy aftertaste slides into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs really light for this one. I’m not minding that. A sweet sticky dryness clings to my tongue nicely. Overall, this was a pretty nice American Pale lager that I would have again and definitely would be nice with its respected food.

davidezdonz (267) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 6, 2015
A 12 fl oz bottle with no bottled on date and poured into a pint glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a light one finger white head that dissipates to a foamy layer with only very light lacing. Aromas are bready malts, pine and some light citrus orange peel, lemon and lime. Tastes grassy, honey and brown sugar sweetness, caramel and bready malts, corn and light hop bitterness. Creamy, light bodied with medium carbonation. I’m not normally a lager person, but Jack’s Abby are definitely changing my views and showing me what can actually be done with lagers. In this case, Jack’s Abby has produced another lager that would better most, but still falls a little flat.
