Single purchased at Cable Beverage.
Bold gold body, some haze, topped by two level fingers of just off white micro bubbles. Very little lacing.
Big fresh grass/hay aroma. Hints of lemon.
Sweet beginning, light malt splashing down the tongue. Small clean bitter snap at the swallow. Gentle hoppiness. Clean finish.
Sort of mix of helles, but not as soft, and a pils, but not as crispy hoppy. Lives up to its session lager goal, but I'd prefer something more true to either style I mentioned.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #68 (Spetember 2012):
LOOK: Pale yellow, touched with haze, topped with thick white foam
SMELL: Cereal malts, biscuit, clean
TASTE: Creamy, lively mouthfeel, light-bodied, wheaty, grain, lemony hop bite, lime oil, grassy, herbal, dry, biscuity linger
A “Session Lager” from this all lager brewery, brewed with Pilsner and Munich malt, local soft red winter wheat and American hops. At only 20 IBUs it packs plenty of hop flavor without overpowering the delicate malt balance, and the use of wheat is a distinct twist-—perhaps too distinct—but works overall. A very solid lager.
STYLE: American Pale Lager

On tap at New York Pizza. Pours a translucent dark golden color with an inch of head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is some lightly toasted malts with some citrus and grassy hops. The taste is more of the same. Bready malts mixed with some grassy hop bitterness. Some citrus near the end with floral and grassy hop notes. The finish is more of the malts with some light bitterness. Light mouthfeel and a bit watery. Very easy to drink and refreshing. This would be a solid canned session beer, but there are better options out there. Still good, though. Overall, not the best Jack's Abby has to offer but not a bad beer by any strech of the imagination.
