Notes/Commercial Description:
Using 100% locally-sourced ingredients, this lager features hops grown by our Mom and Pop on the family farm in VT, and MA-born hops too. Malted barley and unmalted spelt and wheat provide the finishing touches for this all-local brew. A mild, earthly hop aroma mixes well with malty cereal notes. Not to be confused as an extra hoppy beer, this is a nicely balanced and pleasantly hopped lager.

500ml bottle labeled September 2013, extra'd to me by Respirologist. My first Jack's Abby beer. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 10/24/2013 as a way to relax.

Pours a clear straw body, very much like a typical lager with bubbles filing their way to the head. Which is a substantial 1cm white head, very thick and leaves some lacing. Nothing super special, but a nice looking body nonetheless.

Smells very bready, with some floral and earthy hop aromas permeating through. But this is predominantly bready with a little bit of toffee and nuts.

The profile on this beer is pretty much an earthy bitterness throughout dominated by a bready maltiness and floral flavours. Very very balanced lager that tastes like a typical lager yet brings a little bit more to the table. Not über impressive, but flavourful and crisp.

Thinner bodied, still a bit resinous. Very good carbonation, with a mildly dry finish that is refreshingly so. As far as beer goes, I have had better bodied lagers.

Solid lager, nothing super impressive. It isn't that hoppy but its not intended to be. An easy, relatively sessionable lager that is refreshing and not difficult to drink.

3.5/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

A - Pours a medium gold, medium fluffy white head, no lacing.
S - Lager yeast, a light citrus, pepper, a little fresh bread.
T - Biscuit malt, yeast, baking flour.
M - Buttery texture
O - This is a pretty bad miss at the target, there's essentially no real good hop quality at all in this beer, especially flavor.
