500ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
A: Pours a brilliantly clear gloden-amber. Rocky white head builds to a height of three inches. Great retention. Small patches of spotty and clumpy lacing cling defiantly to the glass.
S: Pilsner malt, bready wheat, faint and indistinct fruitiness. Citric hop scents provide some snap. Freshly squeezed lemons and freshly cut grass. Smells very fresh and aromatic.
T: Zing of moderately bitter hop oils at the outset. Grapefruit rind, mild pine, and some lighter citrus notes. Freshly cut grass and flowers. Dry grainy tastes give way to a big spike of coarse, bready wheat. Hops pop up again intermittently, but the back end and finish of this beer are primarily malt-driven. Finishes dry with coarse wheat and underlying pilsner malt.
M: On the lighter side in body. Semi-firm malt backbone. Slightly fluffy and foamy. Ample scrubbing carbonation pricks at the tongue. Not as smooth as it could be, but still good.
O: I feel as though the coarseness of the wheat, the high level of carbonation, and the slight lack of smoothness should detract from the drinkability, but they really don't . Not much, at least. Perhaps not quite as refined as the other Jack's Abby offerings, but still more than worth a try.

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.
