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.

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.

jredmond (5298) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft at prohibition pig with Vinny and Keith. Pours a bright hazy prom. Body with white lacing. Aroma is light with soft notes of lemon, malt, lemonade and light grain. Mouthfeel is medium to soft with notes of lemon, wheat, citrus, soap cleaner and artificial character. The weird off character at the end takes away from the overall impression.

bellco33 (286) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap in a pint glass: Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, and a little funk. Taste is a like a very thin Belgian white, with coriander being the most predominant flavor. Very thin body, not a lot going on, very drinkable, though. Nothing offensive at all about this, just lacking flavor. It’s OK.
