COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Jack is just about the perfect beer for summer. Grapefruit, tropical fruits and citrus flavours from the Citra and Amarillo hops are apparent in the aroma and taste. But we decided to go one step further and actually make it the perfect summer beer. Beginning this spring (2016), we’re adding grapefruit juice to some of our Lucky Jack tanks. Now you can have all the flavour of Lucky Jack with a twist: a perfect medley of citrus from the addition of grapefruit juice. It’s beautifully refershing on a hot summer day on the deck or at the beach.

Malts: Pilsner and Caramel.
Hops. Perle, Citra, Amarillo, Chinook.

Aroma: grapfruit and citrus.

Food pairings: BBQ chicken and ribs, tortillas and guachamole, fresh fruit salad.Inspirert av iddisen Senior, Stavanger Norway.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Clear deep golden with an off-white head. Very hoppy, fresh citrussy nose with grapefruity accents. Flavor is sweet fruitiness with lots of citrussy, aromatic fresh hops and a very decent medium bitter finish. Light body, and a dry, light metallic finish.

brnandersen (3203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2011
330ml bottle from Irma Østerport. Deep, golden colour with a dense, small, white head. From the aroma I get citric hops, grapefruits, pines and grasses. The taste is refreshing, lightly bittersweet with fruits and caramel malts. Medium body with soft carbonation, nice and lasting finish with the flavor notes. Taking in consideration this is a just a 4,7% abv. beer, this is really nice. Ignore the backside of the bottle where the label says serve at 4 degrees C. Far to cold.

djoeye (3195) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2013
1/3L btl, from Eurospar Langnes Tromsø. Pours a nice white bumpy head on a straw yellow body. Scents of peaches and hops, grass, meadow. Taste of bitter leaves, touch of peach, lots of hops. Mouthfeel with distinct bitterness, balanced alright. Spicy notes to the end. Smoke and barbecue. Recommendable to all who can enjoy an ale with distinct bitterness.

MrTipple (3177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Aroma: flowers, resin, some grass. Appearance: clear amber, medium, creamy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: hops intensify, getting very bitter in the long finish. Overall: OK APA, but nothing too exciting. Pint at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green.

330ml bottle @Cimmeria. Some citrusy and herbal aromas. Pours dark gold, clear, with nice white head, persistent. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly crispy texture. Taste is bitter, hoppy, some herbal and subtle citrusy, with a dry aftertaste. Nice and enjoyable.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle from a trade with Palme. Amber with a rather small head. American hops full-on: citrus, peach, floral, grassy and earthy, some resin. Also some toasted malt detectable. Very pleasant aroma. Sharp and dry taste, refreshing and made for fast drinking. Strong, grassy-earthy bitterness, intense on the palate because of the light maltiness. Somewhat like a US-ale version of a German pils, at least I felt it that way. Unfortunately for this kind of beer the carbonation was rather low. Still a good beer though, bordering on very good.

Defreni (2979) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2010
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et fint skumhoved der dog hurtigt forsvinder. Meget frugtet humle i aromaen, uden antydningen af alpha syre. Smagen er igen lækker afbalanceret med en god del frugtet humle. Ikke så amerikansk som forventet, men stadig en solid lækker APA, der er meget drikbar.

Mitt favoritt butikkøl for tiden. Friskt med god sitrus bitterhet i lukt, smak og ettersmak.
