American Pale Lager |  6.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This lager harmoniously combines lager yeast fermentation and west coast IPA hops. Our India style Pale Lager is like a traditional IPA but with a twist - it’s fermented cold and aged for extended periods. A blend of classic American hops creates a huge tropical fruit and citrusy hop aroma. A dry finish accentuates the pleasant bitterness and hop profile. Hoponius Union uses locally grown dehulled spelt from MA.

Bottle as an extra in trade. Thanks! Pours hazy golden colored with a one finger white head. Aroma is grassy hops, tropical fruit, lager yeast sweet aromas. Flavor is sweet tropical fruits, pineapples, grapefruits, mango, some honey sweetness, lightly crisp grassy pine, but not particularly bitter. Smooth body, medium plus heaviness especially for the style, with medium plus carbonation. Crisp finish and easy drinking. Very nice.

Very heavy on herbal, grassy hops, and less on citrus and pine. Also a touch of mineral dryness at the
end. Not my favorite, but not bad.

Pours a slightly hazy burnt straw color with a 1 finger white head. Low carb and nice lacing on the edges.

FIrst smell is lemon, a hint of grass, a little subdued but still pleasant.

Lemon is main flavor. It's pleasantly hoppy but not a blast in the face. A touch of grass on the finish.

The finish is spot on. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. A little puckering lemon on the sides of the tongue though which I could do without.

Very enjoyable and easily crushed. I'm a fan and believer in Jack's Abby.
