I think this is a genius brew. its a german style pilsener lager, with a great dose of American hops. a beautiful fusion of styles. clear on the pour until the sediment layer is disturbed and it runs a little hazy. golden in color with a really active white head a few inches high and lacing up well. the nose is dusty german malts on the light side, and aggressive fruity fresh American hops plenty high in alpha acids. clean flavor too, with a floral side of the hops emerging, fresh and springy, a nice contrast to the fuller malt body for the style. jacks abby has effective redefined the American lager, and this might be their best beer to date. so much flavor, soft feel, and snappy hops with lager yeast, a great combo. everything they make is good, this one is fabulous.
