Brewed by:
Jack's Abby Brewing
Massachusetts, United States

Style: German Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Shipping out of Boston is our take on a German-Style Export Lager. Export Lagers were originally brewed stronger than other pale lagers to endure lengthy travel times. This kellerbier is brewed with a blend of German specialty malts for a deeply golden lager with an intense sweet biscuit flavor. Like the rest of the beers in our Keller Series, Shipping Out of Boston is left unfiltered.

Review #900. 16 oz can.

Pale gold and clear with a medium-sized white head. Word to the wise: Pour the last few ounces slowly and leave an ounce or two in the can or you will end up with some nasty chunks of yeast floating around in your beer.

Sweet, grainy Pils malt aroma. Herbal hops on the back end give it just enough hop character to balance things out. Nothing overly complex going on. Flavor leans more towards the malt but the bitterness is still there.

Man, this beer is smooth, smooth, smooth! Extremely soft and rounded. Medium bodied, pushing medium-full. Very drinkable and agreeable. Jack's Abby nailed the style on this one. Think of it as a Helles with a little more oompf.

Pours a cloudy orange with a well retained two inch creamy white head that left a lot of lacing. Smells and tastes of sweet malts, mild hops (some lemon and lemon peel), lightly toasted bread. Light bodied, medium carbonation, virtually no bitterness, clean, crisp and very refreshing. Simple and very well done.

I loved how evocative this was of the classic Pennsylvania-German lager styles I used to guzzle as a teenager.
Sweet, eminently quaffable and although I normally drink from a Spiegelglau, I paired this with an excellent insulated stainless pint made by Stanley. I highly recommend it for this style as it kept every sip cold and delicious. Not overly complex, and a pleasant change from my usual NEIPA's I have been obsessed with. It has a nice slightly pulpy mouthfeel and developed a very fine head. The 20 ibu level is barely noticeable, overall the hops are very low profile and the extra percent of alcohol is masked well. Not a pretentious beer, this would be great with kielbasa and pierogie, or just a good pizza. Unpasteurized and unfiltered, like keg beer from a pitcher, but in the best possible way.

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a mostly clear dark orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like sweet biscuity malt, with grassy hops, and some tea.

This is simple, but very well done. The malt character is very nice, lightly sweet and very toasty and biscuity, with a very light hop character.

It's incredibly drinkable, with a very crisp and cleanly fermented feel to it. There's a normal level of carbonation.

This is directly up Jack's Abby's alley, and it's done quite well.
