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.

Hey, what can I say except you get what you pay for. Saw this for $12 change per 12-pack. Figured it was Jack's and how could you go wrong. But don't be fooled by the Abby's ratings because this offering is not on par with their other fine brews.

I guess if you like thin 4.5% ABV beers you'll be okay. Many others brew it worse. Since I'm an Imperial drinker I'm probably way too harsh. Try it, you won't dump it, just lower your expectations if you're used to their better brews.

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.

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.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 15, 2014.

Pale yellow pour leading up to a modest white fizzy head. Decent clarity.

Grains and malts take over the aroma with a mildly clean hop note.

Light to medium body.

Like the aroma the taste leans more to the grainy side with a mild hop finish. It was not bad all in all.
