COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We honor our Pops with this beer. His vision built the Leisure Time ice brand decades ago and inspired us to build Jack’s Abby as a family business. Leisure Time Lager is brewed with wheat and a blend of spices including lemongrass, coriander, orange peel and chamomile. A subtle spiciness balances the citrusy and floral hops added to the whirl and hopback. Relax and enjoy! Leisure Time Lager uses locally grown wheat from MA. OG 11.8 Plato / IBU’s 15 / ABV 4.8%. May - August Release.

Bulk_Carrier (3470) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Treated as a pale lager as that’s what it looks, smells and tastes like, this was poured into a pilsner glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy well built burnt yellow color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated nicely. Somewhat messy spider web lacing. The smell started off with the sweet orange peel and then lightens up into a subtle bitterness. Subtle floral chamomile components - somewhat crisp and eventful round it out. The taste was mainly the same - sweet first, subtle bitterness - floral and then grassy. Light wheat bite trying to make a presence in the aftertaste but doesn’t amount to much. Quick dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body. Seems like the wheat gives it a bit more - no worries, I like that. Subtle crisp sweet to bitter feels bumping over my tongue. Overall, hot damn, this stuff is really good. I want more cans to pound all Summer. Pass the brats and a baseball game!

tfontana (566) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle pour into pint glass from Redstone’s Liquors, Stoneham, MA. Aroma is yeasty dough, slightly sour and citrus. Appearance is cloudy greenish yellow with quickly dissipating white head to ring, with mild lacing and mild sparkle. Taste is balance of sweet citrus and sour with coriander. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and lively carbonation and citrusy sour finish. Overall, this stays on the sweet side of the sweet/sour balance with some spiciness. Highly drinkable.
