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.

Simply put, this is a beautiful beer. Wonderful hop aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, and fresh-cut grass weaves beautifully into a canvas of mild cracker and bread undertones layered with very light bitterness and American hop notes. Everything is balanced extremely well, which beckons one to quaff as many pints as he or she wants to. If this isn't the epitome of a world-class session beer, it's damn close.

500 ml bottle.

Thin white head, holding fairly well. Clear as can be yellow - orange hued body. Good carbonation. Smells incredibly clean - mild yeast and hops character. Zero off flavors detected in aroma.

Nice pilsner grain flavor. Crisp and refreshing. Thin body yet satisfying flavorful. Subtle fruity yeast, taste well lagered. Tame Floral hops (like Hallertau). Bitterness is perfectly suiting for the beer. Highly drinkable + solid flavor profile. @ $2.45 a 1/2 liter...
I have not one complaint.

Poured from a half liter bottle into a sample glass. Served cool.

Pours an absolute crystal clear gold body and a thin white head.

Smells minty, grassy and a faint scent of corn flakes.

Nice light balanced sweet and bitter beginning with a cereal middle and a nice bitter aftertaste that lingers.

Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation.

Very sessionable. I have to say that I would not necessarily go for this as a first choice given other beers that Jack's Abby puts out. So I can't say I would buy a growler of it. However, amongst other beers in this category its amazing. This is what a pale session lager should be. Very refreshing and drinkable.
