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 / IBUís 15 / ABV 4.8%. May - August Release.

Pours pale yellow with some cloudiness and a white head that quickly dissipates. Smell- Wheat and a hint of citrus Taste- Wheaty and citrusy but not too strong. There is a hint of spices but very faint. Mouthfeel-Slight carbonation and very smooth. Overall- Iím not sure How I feel about this beer. It was really light on flavor but also kind of refreshing. A mediocre beer overall that could use some more flavor.

tom10101 (3017) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). Slightly hazy pale golden with a small persistent white head and little lacing. Aroma is mostly of chamomile along lemony notes, coriander and citrus/oranges notes. Taste is mild with lemongrass, chamomile/floral, coriander and light orange notes. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Short floral aftertaste. Not the most memorable beer from Jackís Abby, but itís still quite drinkable. Spices and floral presence are soft enough to not hinder the drinkability, but at the end of the bottle it almost start to be mildly cloying.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, pale golden in color and with a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma is grassy and hayish, with some citrus and pale malts. Not much spices. Itís medium bodied and quite dry on the palate, with a bit hard carbonation. Not much spices in the flavor either, mostly pale malts and citrusy, grassy hops. Some bitterness all the way. A rather boring one, giving me nothing. 141025

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Lager malt aroma with some fresh noble hops too. Cereal aroma. It then has some esters and then some spice. Itís a landbier weizen spiced beer. Which is a shame because split up they would be good but as an amalgam I am not so sure. Not overly spiced but if they had left that element out it would have been quite a good lager. With it I find itís trying to be 3 styles in one and it just doesnít make it harmonious for me. Good aroma good base lager elements not sure the spice is needed. Some hop bitterness on the finish.
