Beautiful amber color with a slightly faded paper yellowed head. Looks like a very, very sexy Octoberfest. Thick crust of retention never lets any malt peek through. Leaves a large brushstroke of lace like the Tuckerman's snow arch. I'm very mindful of the 5s I dole out but I honestly don't think this beer could look better. I guess the bottle art could be better but it comes in a .5 liter bottle which I think is a really cool homage to Germany from a brewery that only does lagers.

A quick sniff of the bottle boasts unmistakable sharp, grassy centennial. When poured the centennial is still there but it's accompanied by some orange colored hop aromas: kumquat, tangerine and the like.

Citrus and some soft pine hops with sweet, bread crusty malt. Great use of Munich to balance out the hops. Tongue coating, prickly hop resin with each swallow. Odd to have that much hops with a smooth lager mouthfeel. Not bad, just something I'm not used to.

My lovefest for Jack's Abbey continues. Unashamedly. This is good for an IPA but if I review it as a red lager, and I am, I've never had anything like it.

The name leaves me curious.

A: Good-looking beer. Pours a medium-amber color with a tall, thick, pillowy, off-white head leaving behind great lace and retention.

S: Pour this beer to develop a good head because big hop aromas come through all those bubbles. Once the head settles down, more malt shows itself. Very balanced and inviting.

T: Great flavors from the sweet, roasted malt with a kick in the finish from the hops. Well-balanced. Such an easy drinking beer. Some woody, nutty, earthy flavors paired with the delicious malt.

M: Extremely smooth, crazy drinkability, proper carbonation. Feels great from start to finish. Sizzles in the mouth and on the way down. Everything is right.

O: Jack's Abby continues to take tasteless styles and give them a rebirth, putting the new American craft spin on them. Maybe some of the weaknesses of the style are hidden in the generous hop additions but regardless, it's another well-crafted beer! I rated according to style and it's really that good.

The beer comes in a beautiful clear dark rich ruby color with a thick whtie head.

The aroma has pine and grapefruit. Some caramel malt sweetness.

The beer has a wonderful caramel malt that is sweet, but clean and not sticky. A piney and spicy bitterness throughout. Almost reminds me of the hop character of Celebration. A medium mouthfeel.

A delicious hoppy beer with great balance and clean flavors.

Very nice variation of a bock with an awesome taste of hops.Poured orange into a snifter, its head a nice 2 inches and lacing lasting until the end. Never one to like too many hops this IBU of 50 is just right with its amber color and maltiness, this is an exceptional lager, from the lager heads at Jack's Abby who know how to treat Munch malt to make this really, really good tasting beer - Thanks guys!

This beer pours a nice reddish orange Color with a nice white head that slowly recedes lacing the glass beautifully. The smell is piney hops and a nice bready malt backbone. Taste follows the smell. Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Overall a great beer

S: Very fresh hops, caramel malt, resiny

L: Quite clear orangish red with white creamy head that dissipates slightly.

T: Semi-sweet caramel malt with a pungent hop taste. Medium high bitterness with a pungent resiny hop flavor following. Finishes fairly clean with lasting hop flavor. Some caramel and pine as it warms.

M: Medium full body, medium carbonation. Smooth.

A great beer, would have no idea if this was a lager if it didn't tell me. Just fantastic.
