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.

czar (4362) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
on tap at blackback, waterbury. hazy light golden pour with a decent off-white cap showing some retention and nice lacing. lightly toasted wheat and malts, subtle fruitiness - shy lagering related fruity notes, miscellaneous herbs and spices, fragrant yet never overdone, grassy nobleness, pepper, citrus. average carbonation, light body, dry, crisp spicy-herbal-grassy finish. fragrant, spicy/herbal yet subtle. nicely crafed. oomph missing perhaps.

blklab2007 (1962) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle dated one month ago poured a deep wheat golden color with a covering of white head. Aroma has wheat, light yeasty spice, faint orange peel, and some light dry hops. Mouth feel is light but coats well and there is average carbonation. Flavor is definitely a wheat beer at the core, light tea, mild spices, mild orange rind, and again the faint dry hops at the end. This is mellow and very sessional with the interesting dry hop kicker at the end. Super fresh this is excellent and you get the subtle hints that make this a bit special although I can see where those parts are delicate and likely to fall out quickly.

davey101 (692) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 18, 2014
12 oz into a tulip. Pours a hazy amber with no head. Nose is wheat, spices, and some wet grass. Taste is wheat and grass. Lightly hoppy but kind of muted and boring. Clean and crisp. Overall a nice beer, but kind of lacking in flavor.

_angst_ (2772) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle bought @ Ølbutikken. Pours hazy pale golden with a rather thin frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny sour, tiny herbal and spicy with wheat crackers, moist grass, ginger, lemon grass, basil, cilantro and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter, very tiny sour, herbal and spicy with crackers, cookie dough, ginger, lemon grass, orange zest, lemon zest, Thai basil, hay, sassafras, coriander and hints of pepper corns. Mouthfeel is tiny crisp, round, tiny cloying and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, tiny bitter, herbal and spicy with wheat crackers, hay, lemon grass, Thai basil, lemon zest and hints of sassafras. too spicy for me…
