Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jlindros on 01-15-2012

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.

a. Golden yellow orange in color which cannot be seen through. 2 finger head on the pour into a tulip glass.

s. Acidic smell, maybe some citrus, malt.

t. Refreshing and crisp. Yeast, malt - nice. There is an unexpected creaminess to this beer.No bitter taste that accompanies many lagers.

m. For not holding the head and minimal lacing, the mouthfeel was great. The beer had body and was extremely easy to drink.

o. Not being a typical Lager guy, I may have just found my go to 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.

Solid golden yellow, a little bit of haze, with a large, stable head on top. Floral hops upfront in the nose along with some bready malt, spicy/leafy notes, and lager yeast. Flavor continues along the spicy, grassy line, joined by some toasted grain and earth. Clean and pretty light. Obviously real easy to drink, though I wish the malt came through a bit more.
