LOOK: Pale yellow, touched with haze, topped with thick white foam

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.

I had this on a couple occasions, this time in a glass from a bottle chilled.
The color is resplendent golden with great clarity and 3 fingers of white smooth creamy head with avg bead and fast moving carbonation visible with spotty lace collecting. The smell has lots of herbal aroma with light malt with slight toasted grain and dank quality in the hops juxtaposed with the earthy grain scent and mild yeast ester. The feel is light in body with medium bitterness and medium high carbonation with grainy earthy dry finish and low sweetness.
The taste is very good with lager-like malt flavor with slight dank hops which are herbal and the toasted grain supports this combination well with light earthy weed hoppiness and low sweetness in the taste with a dry finish and light resinous aspect that adds a citrus tanginess with gentle yeast in the finish with mild caramel quality from the malt. Overall I consider this well above average for the style -very good hop flavor in a sessionable lager strength with a slight raw hop quality.
