Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Light and hoppy is the perfect way to describe Uncle Jesse. This West Coast Session Ale is perfect for the person looking for the hoptasticness of an IPA, but not all the alcohol. Dank and citrus notes from the hops outweigh the balance with the subtle honey malt flavor and aroma.

The beer and foam came flying out of the bottle and all over me and the floor. A little later trying to pour it into the glass it quickly foamed up half of the glass. The body is a hazy straw color though.
The aroma is grain and apricot.
The taste is fairly well balanced and light tasting. There's a touch of metallic, but it's mostly lemon flavored.
The texture is crisp with high carbonation.
A poor beginning and the rest is okay.

Pours a clear amber color with a thin, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of big pine hops with some tropical fruits.

Tastes of the big hops with a small malt backbone. Hops lead off with pine and floral notes backed by tropical fruits and citrus. Herbal bitterness comes through. Malts lean in and add a touch of toasted bread and some sweetness. Finishes up with some earthy hops leaving a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, I really like this. It is hop heavy with low alcohol, and I wish it was sold in 6 packs.

I had this because the place I go to has a rotating tap. This is a new beer that they are showcasing. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a local beer and it has an outstanding aroma and almost a reddish appearance. I went back to the pub just for this beer and will do so again.

This pours a light, golden amber color with a brisk, bright hoppy aroma to it. The flavor is pleasingly bitter with some pine and resin mixed with a grapefruit-citrus note to it. Nice finish. Overall not a bad brew, and definitely one that’s easy to drink. I’d have it again.

this is a great session ale that will appeal to hop heads... it does not disappoint.

the pour is really surprising and frothy -- nice 1.5" head of foam forms nice big bubbles and sticks to the side of the glass... impressive.

the aroma is really fresh and beckons with up front hop aroma.... mild grassy malt background and a good enticing waft of slightly spicey slightly citrusy hops.

the taste follows suit and is supremely sessionable. this a very well made, crafted beer... the malts provide a really rich drink and a little sweetness and the hops are up front and fresh tasting... the finish is superb, very dry and clean.

of all the new wave of session beers out there, this one goes right to the top.

EXCELLENT BEER!

Pours a light amber color, about a medium/light wood stain. Quite clear. The off-white head puffs up nicely at first, and there's good lacing and retention. The aroma has a fair dose of hops, though a bit less than expected from the label description. That said, it's a nice blend of tangerine, marijuana and spruce, in that order of strength. There's a fair bit of crystal malt character, as well. Wish they'd pulled back on that more. It just gives a bit too much of a caramel, brown sugar tone to the aroma. Possibly, a touch of diacetyl but not so much as to be a major concern - sort of like some British ales. The taste starts with light caramel-ish malt sweetness but dries out and the hop flavor picks up. Nice mix of citrus and floral hoppiness. Lightly bitter finish. Carbonation is average for the style. Otherwise, mouthfeel is fairly light and a bit oily. It's easy to drink, and I quite like the style, but the darker malt doesn't sit quite right with me, and the beer doesn't otherwise offer enough to make me want to come back for more. Still, it's a nice attempt, and I think they had a good thought with this beer. It just could use some tweaking for my palate.
