4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
In short: A no-style toasted and grassy golden thirst lager of exceptional quality. Wow!
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed fresh two weeks after purchase from the brewery, bottle given to me by lushawn, thanks a lot Shawn.
The look: Crystal clearn golden-blond body topped by a medium white with medium retention.
In long: Nose is has a pleasant sun toasted hay, that fresh “lager smell” that I can never put into words, grassy noble hops. Taste is an exercise in freshness, the true lager character coming through, boiled egg whites (I’m the only one on the planet who gets this from some clean lagers), grainy cereals with a definite freshly picked sun dried hay character, good amount of grassy noble hops, a light touch of caramel. Finish has a mild bitterness and toastiness and dry grass add a dryness that makes you want to go back for another sip right away. Full chewy body with bubbles that are a bit too hard. Except for beers like Heater Allen Coastal and a few others I haven’t had an American bottled thirst lager that was as satisfying this Jabby Brau. I can’t wait for the tickers to start sharing a bottle between 6 of them and thrash the score of this fine fine beer. What a highly drinkable beer, a 500ml bottle just wasn’t enough, but for a good thirst lager like this one I don’t think I’d find any bottle size big enough if it doesn’t require two handles.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle.Clear golden body with a big, creamy and lacing white head. Weak aroma of malt with a light floral touch. Flavor is light, but very smooth malt, low bitterness and a hint of grassy/floral hops. Medium body and short aftertaste. Quite average lager with no faults, very soft and smooth but not particular exiting.

Bottle from SJ. This was a solid lager. Almost Herbal to a point, but not overbearing, Earthy / dirt, grass, lemon bread, grapefruit and salt. Interesting brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
De color anaranjado. Luminosa, con una buena capa de espuma blanca de media retención.
Maltosa en nariz con algún toque cítrico.
Cuerpo medio y bien gasificada.
En boca la malta también toma protagonismo, con su punto dulce.
Refrescante, y para ver diferencias sólo tienes que probarla junto a una lager industrial.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Many bottle and draft samples for as long as they’ve been making it...
Along with the 6 pack cans of CBC’s Remain in Light, this is my current most enjoyed beer. Unbelievably well-balanced between hop flavor, hop bitterness, body and drinkability. It’s got just enough bitterness to clear the palate and just enough body to keep you interested, but by and large this stuff is meant to be enjoyed en masse. Clean, crisp, bright, dry and wonderful. Writing this review makes me want to go drink some....Bravo for making such a high quality take on an oft-maligned "style".

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of grains and some earthy hops. Taste follows, aroma more hop presence here. Pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden color little foam. The smell is earthy and sweetish as is the taste. This is a nice malty lager, but quite lagery and a bit boring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color with small white head. A surprisingly fruity aroma with sweet grains. Taste is sweet and fruity, with a nice malt body. Small-bubbled carbonation. A legitimately fine Lager.
