Light, crisp and a perfect beer for any hot weather or cool down situation. Just enough roast to toast the pils - lovely hoping and nice dry finish. Another great lager from jacks Abby.

Canned 06 04 18
4.7% ABV
The beer was a gold color. There was a small white head with a little lace. Lively carbonation.
A fresh, outdoors aroma. Grain, grassy, floral.
For me this translated to a taste of bread and some light peppery spice.
A nice crisp, refreshing beer.

12-oz can dated 3/6/18 needed a moderately strong pour to get a finger sized bone white short lived head with some sticky lacing.
Clear soft golden color with rising bubbles.
Grainy malt and lager yeast plus floral hops for the smell.
Taste is similar with toasted malts up front followed by semi sweet yeast with bitter hops and a spiciness that lingers.
On the lighter side body-wise with medium carbonation and a crisp finish.
This was purchased in a variety 12 pack with Blood Orange Wheat, Hoponius Union and House Lager.
I have enjoyed all the beers I have tried from Jack's Abby, their beers are diverse from one another and true to style.
The spiciness of this beer is sets it apart from other American made German Pilsners.

Clear light golden color with great white cap and lacing.

Aroma of rich, sweet malt with spicy, floral hops.

Taste is malt forward in a yeasty bread roll fashion with hops more floral at first but gradually building to a firm but pleasant bitterness by the finish.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Leaning more toward the Helles than the Pilsner school perhaps, or that's just me, but call it what you will it's a delight to drink.

With a friend today, did a comparison of Post Shift with Pilsner Urquell...an attemp at comparing the original with a modern interpretation. Jack’s Abby brews some really good lagers, and this is no exception. I really like this Pilsner. I’ll buy it again.

Here’s the thing: it bears little resemblance to the original. The hops are more spicy and even a bit fruity, which is fine, and a main reason I like it so much. But the hops didn’t feel, smell or taste like traditional Pilsner noble hops.

The mouth feel is spot on for a Pilsner. It pours a bit hazy from a 16 ounce can, the haziness due, no doubt, from its being unfiltered.

Overall, it’s a great brew, very drinkable, and I’ll have more this summer.

It just doesn’t conform to the usual characteristics of a Pilsner. But I have to commend Jack’s Abby for pushing the envelope.
