Pours a light straw color, a bit hazy and a nice, modest head. The smell is fantastic. I was not expecting it to be so strong and deliciously hoppy! The taste doesn't quite live up, but it's still very good. Like other beers I've had from them, it's only in the taste that you can tell you're drinking a lager and even then, you can forget. This tastes like a great IPA, with a bit of lagery aftertaste. Body is good and overall, a very solid beer. I'd drink this regularly if it were available.

16 oz bottle poured into Spiegelau glass

A: Straw colored with a slight haze billowy white head laces on the glass like crazy

S: light lemon with some herbal smell and light cracker

T: hoppy with a very light crisp taste a little bit of bitterness on the end with some crackery taste

M: Nice full feel to the mouth

O: This is very nice essay drinking beer I think it lacks a little in the flavor department but it's crisp refreshing and has a very rich full mouthfeel which was very surprising

Bottle might have been old, but wasnt impressed with the flavor. Everything we had on tap from Jacks Abby was great. This was lacking any flavor or aroma at all.
