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%.

Pours a hazy straw from a bottle. Wheaty nose, chamomile flavor, I don’t really pick up on anything else, maybe a slight honey-character in the back of the throat at the finish. Good beer.

CacheManyHose (391) - HONG KONG - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo, drank outside in TST. Smells of grapefruit, coriander, a little bit of wheat, spice, woody hop. Definitely tastes like a wheat lager - crisp lager bitterness that is a bit empty but with phenolic wheat spices (very light clove/pepper) and coriander. Body is thin-to-medium, rough carbonation. Definitely interesting - taste is somewhat lacking in depth but aroma is fresh and crisp.

HKdIPA (457) - HONG KONG - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo outside. Aroma is definitely spiced - coriander and cloves. Taste too. A lot of things I don't like in beer - cloves, wheat, etc. - but it does a good job of hitting all those notes, even if they're ones I don't enjoy. Leaves a wheaty aftertaste with some lingering spice. Wouldn't get again but a good example of this style.

boxofrane (2416) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle from wegmans. Pours hazy yellow with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a bit of lemon, a bit of a tart note,light grain. The taste has a bit of a sweet, citrusy flavor. Very light, very crisp, very summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamesewelch (205) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 23, 2015
From 12oz bottle, 12 bottle variety pack $16, poured into 16oz tulip glass

Aroma: spices, lemongrass, flowery almost lavender

Appearance: soft hazy, straw yellow, nice white head with good retention

Taste: medium sweet, light sour\tart

Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter and dry/crisp finish

Overall: Somewhat like a Belgian Witbier, but missing the Belgian yeast. The spices are nice and not overpowering. A nice very clean and well made lager. the chamomile and other spices lend a very nice and subtle taste which is balanced nicely with a hint of bitterness. Very easy to drink, especially on hot or humid days.
