COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our wet hopped lager is made from 100% handpicked (thanks team!) organically grown local hops from our family farm in Vermont. Mild earthy hop aroma mix well with maltly cereal notes from use of locally grown grain from Four Star Farm. Not to be confused as an extra hoppy beer, this is a nicely balanced pleasantly hopped lager. OG 13 / September release.

Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours clear gold, moderately effervescent with a large, frothy white cap. The bose has lots of doughy bread, cereal, faint lemon and grass. Medium sweet flavor with lots of sugary white bread, Cool Whip, cereal, mild tangerine and straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with further doughy white bread, creamy citrus meringue, straw, faint lemon rind. Very drinkable if a bit simple.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle shared by lushawn- thanks again, LoShonn! Pours a clear gold with a small white head that lasts a long time. Aroma of grass, vegetables, wet dough, dust, and straw. Flavor of grass, dry grains, dough, apples, sawdust, and vegetables. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a doughy, vegetal mouthfeel that dries up at the end. Not bad but too vegetal for my liking.

Glouglouburp (6078) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2013
In short: A clean golden lager with mild wet-grassy hop profile. Ok.
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed fresh a few days after it was picked-up at the brewery. A few dozen of bottles graciously offered by the brewery to someone who was coming up to the HF Harvest 2012 Festival. The bottles were then spread around, big thanks to the brewery and the gentleman who acted as the middle-man.
The look: Partly cloudy pale golden body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose has some wet grass, fresh cereals, wet basement. Taste is fresh chewy/doughy cereals, wet grass. vegetal notes, light citrusy notes. Not much bitterness here. Full body with plenty of soft bubbles, very pleasant mouthfeel. Very clean and easy to drink, nourishing and refreshing but also unexciting. A pleasant beer that I got for free at the HF Harvest Festival by someone who was giving away Jack’s Abby bottles, and it amazes me how most people always seem to forget that it is totally alright to give me beer, lots of it.

thornecb (4460) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Pours pale gold into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet caramel aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning to earthy resin before the lasting sweet doughy finish
