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.

A - this pours a crystal clear sunny lemon yellow with a tiny thin white head that fades to a lace quickly, minimal amounts of visible carbonation

S - a mildly sweet wheaty aroma, but otherwise not terribly much to write about.cleanc, crisp and inviting

T - the wheatiness really comes out in the taste, it is quite evident, a slightly bready or biscuity flavor, the spices express themselves subtly especially the lemongrass and orange peel

M&D&O - supremely smooth, lightly complex, nice flavors and a clean and tasty beer, perfectly unoverflavored

Bottle to Speigleau Wheat glass

Summer 2012 on label
Thanks to Rudzud and Jlindros for this one

App- A light yellow with some peachy haze behind it. A little mix of clarity and bubbles. Good two finger head with very minimal lace and cling. Looks good though.

Smell- When you first open the bottle a lot of the wheat and lager open up. Lemongrass comes next with the grassy notes.

Taste- A nice mix of pale ale, witbier and lager. Just still cant get into lagers. The lemongrass and spice add a good complex layer that opens a bit better as it warms.

Mouth- A light crisp body with a refreshing wetness. Had a light medium carbonation with residual lemongrass and zest.

Drink- It was a nice little beer but just lagers arent for me. As ive said before, ill keep trying. Bound to find one I like!

A: Very light pastel yellow in color. Forms a fizzy white head that slowly falls to a fairly thick surface coating. Minimal lacing.

S: The aroma is pleasantly refreshing. Bright notes of lemon-lime citrus along with wheat, dried flowers, and a touch of orange.

T: Very thin. Starts off with an initial hit of lemony citrus and a light floral quality. Mildy sweet. But then the taste falls off to next to nothing. Just a faint sweetness and a little wheat.

M: Very light and effervescent with an ever-so-light twang to it. Virtually no bitterness. Much like the taste, there just isn't much there.

O: I suppose this is supposed to be the lager version of a wit. Yeah, I guess so. However, while I understand this beer is supposed to be light and subtle there really just isn't much going on.
