COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the French farmhouse style as a warm fermented lager. The grist contains 30% Rye Malt local sourced and malted in MA as well as Belgian candy sugar. We leave this beer slightly hazy to accentuate the mild fruity yeasty character. Copper in color, a spicy Rye flavor emerges in a dry yet malty finish. OG 14.5 Plato / IBUs 30 ABV 6.0% / January - May Release

kramer (4681) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is softly malty with a bit of bready malt, light spicy rye, and some Belgian yeast influence. The flavor is soft and earthy as well with some rye spiciness and some crackery malt. A lingering yeast influence. Still fairly dry given the fact that they added candi sugar to this. Lighter bodied with a fair amount of fizzy carbonation. Pretty interesting beer, not as big of a fan of this one as most of their other beers though. I tend to prefer their super clean and crisp traditional lagers.

Bottle courtesy of Jay at Paul’s Housewarming 2013 tasting. Pours an amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is grainy and spicy with some light fruity floral character coming through. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of citrus fruits, spice, grain, light bready malt and flowers.

500ml bottle pours hazy orange gold with a finger of head. Nose is cereal, light fruit, grain, sweet. Taste is bready, fruity yeast, cereal, sweet malty notes. Finish is cereal, malt, no real bitterness. Probably the least impressive Jack’s Abby I’ve tried yet.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
500mL thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours a full haze orange, thicker, rocky off white foam with good formation and retention. Nice lacing. Nose is orange potpourri, soap, sanitizer, metallic penny. Taste is bitter orange, somewhat anesthetic in mouthfeel, camphor, metallic finish. Wasn’t a big fan.

500ml bottle at my place. Pours copper, slightly cloudy, light lacing small. Aroma is huge rye, mild yeast, fruity yeast, light malt. Taste is dry rye malt, slight fruitiness. Cleanish finish with a dry rye note that lingers. Mouthfeel is fizzy and light to medium.

jbeatty (942) - New York, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle, 08/16/2013. Pours dark amber, clear, thin fizzy white head fades within a minute or so to leave a thin ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is toasted wheat, mild fruity yeast with thin caramel overtone, lightly spicy grass notes to finish. Taste is bread, moderately sweet, slight lemon and orange fruitiness with spicy rye tickling the tongue, dark bitter grassy finish. Medium light body, good carbonation and easy drinking, could definitely knock back a few of these. Pretty decent.

Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sour white grape, lemon, biscuit, hints of oak, caramel, toffee, some slight spice, interesting, pretty true to style. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, red fruits, nice oak, slight craker, hints of grass, spicy hops, hints of white grape, finishing sweet, dry, slightly bitter. Pretty well done, just not a fan on the style.

Bottle that I took to Paul’s housewarming tasting. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft grain and a touch of spicy rye on the nose. Medium-bodied with some spicy rye and a touch of citrus. Long grain and toast on the finish. Faintly spicy, gentle rye. Tasty.
