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), were 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. Its 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.

Echon (413) - rhus, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2015
Clear pale golden body with a white head.
Very hoppy aroma with pine and fruit.
Rather dry and bitter taste, with a fair amount of hoppy flavours. The malt is somewhere in the background. Bitter and hoppy finish.
Light body with average carbonation.

This is all about the hops, and Lervig have done well on that account. I do prefer my pale ales less dry/more malty than this, but it is still very tasty.

StoutWolf (3) - Troms, California, USA - DEC 10, 2015 does not count
Aroma of tropical fruits, raisins, limesorbet, cloroform and olive oil. Taste like citrus, soap, caramel, cereal and grapefruit. Great refreashing hoppyness, and a good drinkable beer that tastes great on the top of any mountain.

KeefOz (1610) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2015
Poured a cloudy honey brown colour with a one- to two-finger white frothy head that retained very well and laced poorly. Carbonation high and fine. Quite a few small yeast particles settling out. Aroma is light and subtle with passionfruit and hints of citrus (grapefruit). Taste initially of malt sweetness then pine with a nice moderate bitterness; not as good as the aroma. Light body. Crisp with a tangy bitter finish. OK.
