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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Alex. Swampy, slightly red tinted copper, opaque & murky with little bits of sediment. Thin, gray, bubbly collar. Aroma has light caramel candies, red apple, toffee, light Candi sugar, a hint of staleness. Flavor is very, very lightly tart with some apple, grape, & faint prune. Notes of caramel malt, toffee, & lightly toasted rye bread earthy must in the periphery. Slightly bland, a touch of stickiness in the body. Decent.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle... Clear dirty-orange ale with a tiny, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is nutty and bready with spicy hops and bold grains. Medium-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is nutty, boasting sweetbread, husky grains and a hint of acidity. Finishes crisp and tangy. Many thanks go out to biggsbowler for hooking it up!

kramer (5763) - 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.

jredmond (7241) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
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.

GT (9933) - Oceanside, 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.

jbeatty (1240) - 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.
