Lashes Lager balances an assertive Munich Malt character with an infusion of Super Styrian, Columbus, Palisades and Centennial hops. It’s full-bodied and malty with a hop aroma that’s earthy and piney. Definitely enjoyable beer for New England’s cold winter days. OG 16 Plato. October - January Release.

500mL Bottle, purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits - Somerville, MA. Minty resin aroma, nipped with orange and rosemary. On the palate, this is okay. It reminds me of early attempts in the brewing world to make hoppy, bitter lager and it was kind of middling. This has a clean, but strong bitterness, but not a ton of hop flavor. The lagering is clean and crisp, but the malt has a flavor like too much Crystal malt or Special B that turns me off a little bit. Sadly, one of my less favorite Jack’s Abby experiences.

Bottle at home. Pour is hazy brunt amber with a frothy cream-colored head and great lacing. Spicy hoppy, rye bread, caramelly, toffee, grassy, doughy, and cereal in the aroma. Taste is caramel, toasted bread, grassy, honey, spicy hops, and crackers with a crisp finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent bock.

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The nose is pine, resinous, bread crust. The flavor is malt forward, bread crust, rich maltiness, the hops become noticeable in the finish with flavors of citrus and pine. This is a very interesting beer, I love the bready malt quality intermingling with the pine and citrus American hop notes.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is caramel, pine, and herbs. Medium mouthfeel with light caramel malt and wet biscuit. Good.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Spicy hops and mild cereals evolve in a lean and drinkable body for a clean but forgettable pint of Dunkler Bock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear amber.
-This lacks malt character for my tastes in the style. The Andechs we had side-by-side was much better defined for the same abv range and similar body.
-The chosen hops are harmonious with the grain bill, but tend to take it over flavor-wise.
-The mouthfeel is as slender as most Jack’s Abby lagers.

On tap at The Dirty Truth.

tectactoe (1857) - Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle: Large gradient from tinged amber all the way to deeper shades of copper, even with a hint of ruby in places; large, foamed-up & creamy light-beige head lots for a while & leaves great lacing behind. Aroma is packed with wet pine needles, dirty & earth-laden hops, leaves, a hint of bitter, white pepper covered citrus rind & a decent backbone of semi-sweet, toasted & borderline caramel-like malt. Very nice hop bite on the front end of each sip with strong notes of pine tree, earth, & obscure citrus. Lots of brash leaves, giving a strong pungency & really stinging the back-end of the tongue with bitterness. The Munich malt introduces a nice toasted cracker, biscuit-like sweetness & flavor, just shy of toffee, without growing too sweet. Clean finish, pine resin aftertaste with a lasting bitter bite. Definitely a different ("American") take on this style, very enjoyable overall.
