A-Pours a crystal clear, bright golden color. Fizzy, white head that simmers down to a thin skin of suds. Nearly no lacing.

S-A more robust, enhanced American Lager aroma. No frills. Grains and biscuits with a slight skunk and some more noble, grassy hops. Rather pleasant.

T-Crisp and well balanced between dry and sweet. Hops offer just enough backing for the super-easy going overall flavor. Dry grain with a sweet biscuit finish. Pleasant lingering Lager yeastiness. Lacks the perturbing, excessive sweetness of many macro Lagers.

M-Crushable to the max. Spritzy, plentiful carbonation. Very low bitterness. Light as it gets. Maintains enough body to narrowly avoid the 'watery' moniker.

O-Pretty well done. A high quality American Lager that is well made but goes nowhere the pushing any boundaries. Pretty neat through and through.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pale yellow with a bit of haze and a short-lived cap of bright white, soapy bubbles. Malt and cereal aroma, notes of herbal and slightly sulfury hops. Moderate bitterness that lingered, slight citrus up front followed by malt and grassy character -- pretty nice. Light-to-medium bodied, carbonation a little on the low side, some dryness. Overall, refreshing and nicely balanced. I liked it and am happy to have the rest of a 12-pack to go through.

3.71/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: 1 finger white head quickly fades. Pours a very clear, very pale yellow

S: Heaps of crackery, biscuity malt

T: Again with the sweet biscuity malt with a slightly drying finish. A very mild bitterness keeps the beer relatively balanced

M: Extremely refreshing and easy to drink

O: Not a super complex brew by any measure, but very well done for what it is. I'd be curious to try this side by side with Jabby Brau, as this seems very similar but with a reduced hop presence.

4/5  rDev +12%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, gold in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: straw and toasted malt

Taste: straw, grass, toasted malt, light hops at the end

Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, sweet with light bitterness

Overall: Typical Jack's Abbey. Another solid and clean lager. Even though it is a light beer, it is still a bit heavier than most in the style. I will be getting more of this.

12 oz bottle dated 6-20-14 poured into a SA Perfect Pint glass.

A -- Pale straw color with a thin white head. Lots of bubbles from the nucleation points. Head has good retention.

N -- Grassy. Light malts. A little bit of hops as well.

T -- Follows the nose.

M -- Really light and crisp. They set out to make a great American lager with real ingredients, and it shows. I like this.

O -- Again, I like it a lot.
