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.

Pours a mostly clear, with a light touch of cloudiness, yellow straw color. An aggressive pour yielded a large frothy white head, excellent retention, soapy film and lacing.
The aroma is sweet and inviting. Cereal grain with a touch of honey, complimented by floral hops.
The first phase of the taste produces a silky and smooth malt sweetness. It is certainly pleasant, however, further into the drinking, a subtle grassy and peppery hops flavor begins to develop. It adds a fine balance and a moderately low bitterness.
Light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Smooth at first, yet, increasingly crisp in the latter stages. The finish becomes increasingly dry and with a lemon and grass hops linger. Finely balanced and easy to drink.
A lovely and delicious pilsner. Jack’s Abby makes some wonderful lagers. This one is no exception.

The beer pours a Clear bright yellow with a big white fluffy head. It has high carbonation with bubbles floating around like a snow globe. The beer smells of biscuit, cereal grains, faint citrus, herbs, and floral hops. It tastes of bread, cereal grains, citrus, earthy, herbs, and fresh cut grass. It’s smooth, easy drinking, with a dry finish. This is a great American Pilsner from Jack’s Abbey, very refreshing.
