Canned on 11/14/18. Another stellar lager from Jack’s Abby. Their beers make me happy to be back in New England. This is just a darn good Pilsner. Crisp, clean, balanced, easy drinking....delicious. Properly hopped to match the malt bill and create an awesome feel and finish. Buying a 4-pack of tall cans is a no-brainer!

A little frothier in feel and look than a classic pilsener while still crisp and refreshing - with that good pilsener sharpness!
An excellent and not too distant variation of a classic style!

Pours a translucent golden-yellow with a finger and a half of white foam. Head retention is good. Aroma is dry pilsner malt, yeast, straw, and spicy, herbal hops. Malt hits up front with the hops sliding up the volume towards the finish. It stays well balanced and nuanced. Flavor profile is straw, spicy, citrus, herbal hops with pilsner, bready malts underneath. It has a lightly sweet taste up front and then fades more into mellow malts. A yeasty finish keeps the taste lingering on the tongue. Mouth feel starts fairly concentrated, with the liquid becoming slightly expansive on the tongue, ending at a fuzzy, medium-thin consistency. It's lightly crisp, but loses a touch of that crispness to the fuzziness on the end of the tongue. Overall, a quality pilsner with nuanced and discernible hops and malts. It's not a flavor dump, nor is it completely devoid of personality - striking a calm and pleasureful balance.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

L: Pours a brilliant straw gold color with a large creamy white head and a little bit of lacing on the glass.

S: Sweet cereal malt, some toasted bread and a nice floral hop.

T: Toasted bread and sweet malt, mixed with a strong floral hop and bitterness. It tastes nice but the hop is a little strong for the rest of the pilsner.

F: Light body, smooth carbonation.

O: This is a nice beer, I just wish it was a little less hoppy, the hops unbalance it a bit.

definitely on the lighter side of craft pilsener, but a well made beer, as they all are from these guys. the name says it all, but to me, its almost pre shift beer, in the sense that drinking it almost makes me want to work, like for myself of course, but like, go pull weeds as an excuse to drink this outside or something, its that kind of beer, blue collar but professionally even artfully done. clear and pale yellow at most, with a short but stocky white head on it and the aroma you would expect, light european pils malt and noble hops with a very mellow lager yeast strain and some minerals, the flavor is the same, just a little balancing bitterness from the hops, a biscuity simplicity to the grain, and a wonderful refreshing dryness to help it finish fast, barely a trace after the swallow. epic carbonation, this one really sings, quenching and a beer to drink deeply and quickly, i love when i meet a pils like this! i pretty much like all the lighter stuff these guys do, but this is one i would buy again and again. the lighter side of the style for sure, but its an all year round beer for my palate. very drinkable and enjoyable, clean and easy.
