Beer added by: taez555 on 05-25-2012

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

1392nd Review on BA
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!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on December 6, 2014.

This pours very pale yellow with a slight haze. Short-loved white fizzy head.

The aroma is toasted malts mostly but there are plenty of other interesting characteristics including coriander, lemongrass, yeast, and clean hops.

Lighter body.

You know this really makes me think of a witbier more than anything else. Good toasted malt. coriander, and lemongrass character. Mild finish.
