Pours a clear orange with a thick off white lacing. Somewhat fruity with notes of bread and cereal. Sweet, but not overly so.

Bottle. Dark rustic breads. Touch of dark fruit. Toast. Nuts. Seems like I’m doing a giant jacks Abby tasting every night.

From the tap. Pours light gold with a thin creamy head. Light toasty malt aroma. Tastes like sweet bready malts mixed with mild herbal flavors. Good body, light alcohol taste and spot-on carbonation. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle purchased from Leary’s for $3.80. To undersized snifter, it pours a clear Citrine/golden yellow; light orange when held up to the eye. It sustains a trim whitish head barely a fingernail in length. Smells and tastes of breadcrumbs/sourdough, white grapes, sawdust, tin, rolled oats, and lager yeast. Crisp, refreshing, just not all that complex. Would have again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
clear dark golden pour with a filmy white head. Aroma is bready, with light honey, cereals, subtle grass. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying, and grainy. Light nuttiness comes out as it warms, with sweet bread, and more grassiness tickles the tongue on the finish. Moderately drying with a bit of sweetness on the end. A decent beer, and a pretty tasty Helles Bock.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in NYC. Pours clear, muted gold with a small, white cream head. Pale, doughy malts on the nose. Medium sweet flavor with further doughy, bredy malts, light grains and hay, faint herbal notes. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet but not cloying finish with rich bread, hints of alcohol, mild cereal, touhes of bitter straw. Nicely balanced heller bock - which is an accomplishment.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Immensely enjoyable and drinkable. Not malty-sweet like many american heller bocks. This has nice hop underlining and a beautiful hazy unfiltered yellow color. This brewery is to watch.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet malt, grassy hops, and citrus in the aroma. Flavor starts with biscuit and citrus, with a little hop bitterness and alcohol in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Another good lager from Jack and his bros. The hops are very subtle under the more noticable malt sweetness and while not as tasty to me as most of the other JA offerings it is a very drinkable brew overall.
