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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille. Paris Saint Bière. Robe dorée surplombée d’une belle mousse blanche. Nez de malt blond aux notes noisettés avec une pointe de houblon. Bouche courte, légere et fluide au profile largement malté. La finale est légerement acide et florale. Une bière sans surprise mais une jolie lager.

Clear golden orange color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is toast, pale malt, light bread, light hop. Drinkable but compared to some of their other offerings I wasn’t a fan.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a golden color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has sweet lager malt, nice bright hops, fruity touches, and some grains. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation average. Flavor has a lager malt base, overlaid hops, some sweetness at the edges, and bits of grain. This is a well done lager with a great hop addition to kick it up.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild pine and citrus aroma. Pale amber color with some haziness. Head doesn’t last long. Has an initial bitter bite but fades to a bland finish. Faint sweetness in background after awhile. Although not bad just not exciting for my taste buds.
