Bottle poured into a shaker pint.
A: Pours with a finger of soapy, sudsy white head. Color is a slightly hazy, dark gold. Nice lace, retains with a half inch.
S: Lots of earth, barley malt, cereal, and an overall clean graininess. Mild citrus lingers in the back. A very clean lagery profile, but not in a bad way by any means.
T: Bready, doughy malt upfront. Lots of toasty, cereal grain and a nice earthy, grassy, and mildly citrusy hop. Very clean and fresh flavor profile.
M: Medium, smooth body. Carbonation is good but not overly zingy. Its a very refreshing beer.
O: Another lager done right by Jack's Abby. Don't expect it to be anything like Hoponious Union however, this one stays a bit more true to the APL style. That being said, its a solid, clean, refreshing beer and one that might be a good intro to craft.

500 ml. bottle poured into a wine glass. Notes 5.2% from Mom & Pops Harvest Series. Pours clear and deep straw/golden with a thin off whit cap. Light retention. Aroma is hoppy but a bit indeterminate in nature. A fresh pour yields a somewhat spicy Saaz/Noble hop aroma through the foam. Slight haze on final pour, perhaps bottle conditioned.
Taste is full with some citric sweetness on the finish. Feel and finish match the delivery and add a slightly peppery and lemon spice to the close.
Nice moderately hopped lager with Noble hops apparently predominant, yet more complex than a pilsner by design. Offers a relatively full body for a 5.2% lager given spicy hop characteristics.
Brewed Sept. 2013 and reviewed from notes Jan. 2014.
