Style | ABV
American Pale Lager |  4.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Deep golden in color, this low ABV lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with an aromatic American hop aroma. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavorful and drinkable for the lightest beer we brew. We dub this beer a "Session Lager," as we once again brew a lager in a beer style of its own. Uses local Soft Red Winter Wheat from Four Star Farms.

20 IBU

4.29/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours pale straw with a generous white patchy head. Excellent retention and a solid coat of lacing down the glass.

Typical grainy pilsner aroma with some floral hops.

Follows the nose closely. A little sweet bread up front along with grainy pilsner malt and finishes floral and crisp on the back end.

Light bodied with prickly carbonation finishing crisp and dry. Spot on.

Jack's Abby is rapidly becoming one of my favorite out there breweries. They have lagers dialed in. This one is flavorful, yet incredibly light and sessionable. Before I knew it my 16 oz was gone. Really digging something under 5% that has actual flavor.

3.81/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Slightly cloudy brass with rocky steady white froth.
Fresh grassy noble nose with some toasted grain.
Doughy, a bit of golden syrup, some granola, and mild herbal hops.
Honey graham comeback and clean linger.
Crisp, light, slight cling.

Easy, but you can taste the quality. A lager, not a pils, so only 20 IBUs, no matter what I want it to be. Yet also thin and underdeveloped. I've had this idea done better (i.e. Session Lager).
