Bottle (500 ml) at home. Bought at Parker Pie. Clear bright amber with a medium off-white head, medium retention leaving some lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, bread, mild spiciness grassy notes and raisins. Taste is slightly sweet with toasted malts, breadied malts, grassy notes, caramel/toffee and mild spiciness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Grassy finish. Another amazing lager from Jack’s Abby. Good malt depth, but also great drinkability. Loved it!

JulienHuxley (5210) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle split 2 ways. Amber brown pour, clear but a bit dull with smallish white foam. Aroma is nice and roasty, toasted malt, nice and fresh rye bread, light peppery notes, light grassy notes, quite hoppy for the style. Taste is malty, light sweetness, good balance of character and drinkability. Palate is light bodied, smooth carbonation. Good stuff.

Bottle from Drum Hill Reddish amber color with a huge frothy beige head that persists forever. Nutty and toasty maltiness with bits of sweet almost raisiny sugary flavors. Tasty lager, but I was hoping for a bit more crusty toasty flavors.
