S: farty and huge amounts of ground oak leaves. Even if you just add good hops, you shouldn't get this flavor... (grasss, oak leaves, grass, grass, grass)
T: same deal. I don't get how JA released such a bad beer. In their defense, my fiend liked it.
apparent-ce: beautiful light brown, beautiful lacing.
Mouthfeel: I dunno, was too underwhelmed. Good MF actually
Overall: I LOVE, LOVE jacks abby beer. LOVE it. I hate to do this, but I couldn't handle this. I actuallly dumped my 4oz glasss. I literally traded 2 bud heavy for my last bottle
Again. JA makes the best beer in the area IMO, this was just fluke miss. I won't even describe what I traded it for,
Again, I love jacks abbey, they make insane good shit. But this was not my favorite... not evan close.
Edit: Think ground oak with no balance., like if you could extradt if you could get pine cone flavor.

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.
