Notes & Commercial Description:
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.

Pours a slightly clouded gold, with a bubbly two finger head that recedes quickly. Leaves little islands of lacing behind.

Smell is floral hops, and not too strong either.

The taste blew me away. I had just finished a stout 15 minutes ago which may be affecting my palette, but I pick up honey, lemon, butter and biscuit, perfectly balanced.

Light bodied, crisp, drinkable.

This might just be the best beer I've ever had.

Poured a hazy straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured light esters and a grassy hop.

The taste offered a more pronounced ester with a chewy wheat malt and nice residual grassiness.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty and unique beer.
