If I hadn't read the label I would say it was a pilsner. Looks, smells, and even tastes like one. Can really smell and taste the sweet malt grain. Smells a little adjunct like- close to a Miller Lite. Taste a lot better than the aroma. A little tart with a slightly hoppy bitter finish. Crisp, very easy drinker. Good solid lager throughout.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.
Pours out a deep golden color, with lots of visible carbonation and a 2 inch head. This fades to a small amount of lacing down the glass.
Smells like lager yeast, grape, and sweet grains.
A very malty maibock here, lots of sweet grape-like malt flavor. Some flavors of lager yeast as well, some grainy sweetness, a slight bit of flower hop character. Not much hop flavor to this one, this one's a story of the malts, which impart a really distinctive grape flavor.
Light to medium boded, crisp mouthfeel, medium carbonation, very drinkable.
Another winner from Jack's Abby, this one shows some nice restraint.

Bottle poured into a Sam Adams glass
Pours a clear golden yellow with carbonation leading to a two finger , big bubble white foam cap. Settles into a decent layering of bubbles with some lacings on the glass.
Aroma of grass and citrus. I get what others are saying about a wine aroma. Bit of pepper spice.
First sip, " oh, that's nice!" Smooth first taste, this beer goes down easy. Nice sweet malt . Gentle hopping with of wisp of bitterness. Light mouthfeel. Carbonation on the back of the tongue. Smooth finish.
Well I just found another Jacks Abbey beer that I will have to stock up on. Eminently quaffable. Great taste, need to fill me up some more of this beer.
