4/5 rDev +5.8%
16.9oz bottle purchased as a single from Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" beige head over the slightly cloudy golden amber brew. Frothy head lasts and lasts, with sporadic chunky lacing. Aroma is citrus and light pale malts.
Taste starts with a peek of sweetness, citrus in the middle, and bitterness and more lemony goodness through the close. Smooth mouthfeel, and drinkability is way easy. Sessional thirst-quencher, check.

a real nice lager from jacks abby, but they all are from these guys, totally reinventing the word lager for most craft beer people, a noble and so far highly successful mission. this session rye lager is under 4% abv, clear light copper in color, and carbonated well enough to be supremely refreshing. a classic but robust American hopping makes it about as hop forward as a good ipa, but the low alcohol and the clean finish of the lager yeast make it that much more of a perfect summer day drinker for those seeking such a thing. the rye is really mild in this, probably well under 20% of the grain bill, and quite pale, influencing the overall flavor profile of this beer fairly minimally, which is my only real critique. a little more rye would be awesome, but in the theme of a lighter brew, I think it just accents the hops without being too much. really snappy finish and overall a fun session brew. jacks abby has done nothing but impress me.

A - A light off-white head sits on top of a amber body, Not much lacing remains, just specks here and there on the pint glass.
S - Nice, deep malt aroma off the top, doesn't overwhelm. There's almost a nuttiness in there.
T - It took me a few sips to wrap my head around this one. There's an immediate bitterness with floral notes for sure, but they hang in the background. What you come away with is something very subdued.
M - Medium to light mouthfeel here. I was expecting something a bit heavier and was surprised on the lightness, almost wateriness, of this beer.
O - Not sure if I was wrong in expecting something a bit more full here, but the taste just doesn't seem to blossom in this Rye IPL.
