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.

Light citrusy aroma. Nice golden colour with a small white head. Good citrus and fruity taste with a sharp fresh bitterness. Not as long aftertaste, but overall a really good and fresh beer.

Can from Booths in Windermere. Pours hazy golden with a frothy off white head. Nice grapefruit aroma. The taste has moderate spice along with more grapefruit and pineapple. The finish is pleasantly bitter and refreshing. Good.

Hanoi (833) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Can. Nose is tropical, hint of grapefruit; but very faint. Taste is light grapefruit, lime, hint of pith, malt, lightly bitter finish. It’s fine, and like a lot the widely available Lervig beers a bit bland.

Refreshing and and clean APA. Malty with a soft hop profile. Wanted a bit more but it still is an enjoyable drop and very sessionable

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of citrus, tropical fruit, biscuit, and grass. Light hazy gold color. Bitter citrus, grapefruit, with a dry finish. Thin body, a touch watery. Decent APA, without much character.

piwnepodroze (206) - POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Wita mnie pięknie złota, lekko opalizująca barwa i czapka bielutkiej piany. Zapach nie jest mocną stroną piwa, jest lekki i tylko delikatnie przebijają się cytrusy. Szokiem jest duża gorycz, pierwsze łyki zaskakują jej poziomem, ale po chwili wszystko zgrywa się nieźle działającą całość. W smaku pojawiają się wytrawny grejpfrut i cierpka skórka cytrynowa, które dobrze pasują do sporej goryczy. Piwo jest gładkie i koniec końców przyjemne w odbiorze.
