3.55/5  rDev -10.4%

bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from a jack's abby snifter.

brew pours a transparent, rich ruby chestnut. thin fizzy head.

nose is toasted crystalized malts...hints of caramel with an alcohol tingle.

taste matches the nose. amber toasted malts. little nuttiness with some piny bitterness on the finish.

mouth is a bit fizzy...malty with a bite

as the amber take on a lager, for what it is, this is nice...but not a combo that appeals to me. i am blown away by jack's abby and the variations on a lager theme that they do...an amber just doesn't appeal to me.

12 oz bottle poured into pilsener glass.

A - Pours a beautiful clear amber, with small amounts of carbonation rising. Good sized head developed, off white in color. Small amount remained through the duration, and a fair amount of lacing stuck to the glass.

S - Fairly hoppy, slightly sweet. Hops were slightly fruity and very slightly spicy. Small amount of malty sweetness, yeast, red pepper, black pepper, and caramel. Nice smelling beer.

T - Very hoppy up front. Not as fruity as the aroma, though I do notice some grapefruit, but quite plesantly bitter, and just slightly earthy. Piney notes as well. Hops are certainly the most powerful aspect, they stay on your pallet throughout the swallow and remain very noticeable in the aftertaste. Just a slight amount of malt is present, slightly bready with perhaps a bit of caramel taste. Malt backbone tastes nice, but is weak. Beer is very tasty, but lacks a strong malt backbone, which I like.

F - The weak malt backbone, while not helping the taste, helps with it's smoothness. Does have some nice bite from the hoppy bitterness and the carbonation. Extremely drinkable.

O - I do feel as though some Jack's Abby brews are too similar, this being one of them. It reminds me very much of Hoponius Union (although not as good). With that being said, it's a very solid hoppy Amber Lager, which to my knowledge, there aren't many of. Great hoppy taste and drinkability, my only complain is a weakish malt backbone. Highly recommend this beer to any hoppy beer fanatic, especially anyone who will appreciate the smoothness of a lager with the hoppiness of a Pale ale.
