Notes/Commercial Description:
We honor our Pops with this beer. His vision built the Leisure Time ice brand decades ago and inspired us to build Jack’s Abby as a family business. Leisure Time Lager is brewed with wheat and a blend of spices including lemongrass, coriander, orange peel and chamomile. A subtle spiciness balances the citrusy and floral hops added to the whirl and hopback. Relax and enjoy! Leisure Time Lager uses locally grown wheat from MA.

Pours a cloudy and beautiful pale yellow with a short head of loose white foam that falls fast and does not leave any lace. The middle of the beer seems to glow a bit with a light as it passes through the haze. The nose is gracefull and has the malt up front. Wheat sweetness with a bit of the corriander laid in earthy. So it's what but a bit edgy. There's chamomille and that's floral and sweet. There's a soft breath of lemongrass faintly in the background and the orange peel comes up earthy to the nose as well. The taste is subtle but spicy. As the ingredients combine they create a very unique flavor. The what is dry and crisp, the chamomille floral and sweet the lemon grass is also faint on the palate. The surprise is the subtle and gentle orange. it's not loud but it is powerfull. It too has an earthiness but it brings the sweetness of the orange t the drink in a way that is light yet juicy. Drinks softly and pleasantly. Crisp lager carbonation that is perfect with a just enough bite. The mouthfeel is somewhat creamy in defiance of the spicy character.

The beer comes in a vibrant rich hazy golden yellow with an egg shell white head.

The aroma offers yeasty and bready lager notes along with wheat with hints of citrus peel and earthy spice with coriander.

The flavor follows with that lager yeast quality in the front with a decent amount of spice of coriander in the front. The wheat adds to the body with a medium to medium minus mouthfeel. The middle has a touch of citrus orange and lemongrass and honey sweetness. A light bittering of spicy and floral on the back.

Reminds me a lot of Bell’s Oberon. Not a very impressive beer, but definitely a good step up from Bell’s attempt at summer wheat ale/lager.

a. Cloudy yellow with body and two finger head when poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

s. Lemony sent with some wheat/bread.

t. Surprisingly very little to no lemon taste, but good body and sweet finish. Not a big lager fan, but this one is pretty good.

m. A bit dry, but overall good.

o. A very good lager. would revisit on a hot day. I do not like coriander, and generally stay away from it, but it is subtle here. Not overwhelming as is usually the case.
