Pours dark straw color with a bit of foam head and some lacing in flight glass. Smell is hay, grass, malt. Taste is grass, hay, and lemon. This one is strong on the grass notes, with a hint of lemon. Strangely heavy on the tongue and in the stomach for what it is. Not remarkable at all.

Overall, tastes like a Genesee Cream Ale. Very disappointed in this beer, I expected more from this brewery.

Taste of sweet corn and white bread, would never buy again.

Poured into a pint glass, a clear golden yellow color yields a soft foamy white head. Carbanotion is visible. Excellent retention on the head.
The nose is clean at first, however, a grainy sweetness from the malt soon manifests itself. There is a light floral aroma, from the hops, that supports the mostly malt forward nose.
The taste is malt forward with a soft and smooth texture. There is a subtle sweetness, however, a touch of floral and grassy hops impart a perfect balance; a gentle spice without bitterness. The finish is dry and smooth.
Medium bodied, balanced and with a pleasantly soft texture. Clean, yet with lots of character for a lager. Easy to drink.
I’m a big fan of Jack’s Abby, and am happy to know that they are around to provide the opportunity to taste craft lagers that are authentic and great representations of traditional styles.
