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.

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.
