Clean, easy drinking lager with a nice fruity hop quality to it. I am not certain of the freshness of my bottle but I imagine this beer is even more special when on draft. Also, amazing value at 3 dollars for a pint bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Pours an amber from the tap, good lacing, kind of a blandish, malty lager. Crisp. Good beer.
