16 oz can poured into a pilsner glass

A- A slightly hazy golden amber with a two finger white head.

S- Biscuity/bready malts, citrus, faint tropical fruits, piney, hints of wet grass.

T- Citrus, some melons, wet grass, slightly sweet bready malts, floral/herbal, bitterness is a nice piney/earthy combo.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- This is my first beer from Jack's Abby and it is a solid lager. Not the biggest fan of the wet grass the hops are giving it, but everything else is great.

Can poured into fluted snifter.

Golden pour, mostly clear, thick foamy big bubbled head, settles and rings the glass.

Herbal, vegetal, and biscuit aroma. Subtle citrus zest and a bit of earthy resins.

The flavor is headed by spicy herbal hops, bit of grapefruit bitterness and the lager aspects take control. Biscuit, yeasty, raw dough. Grassy notes floral hops play their part too.

Moderate carbonation and a medium body.

Heavy flavored lager, bold hops in the earthy/herbal/floral nature.

This beer, among others from Jacks Abby, puts lagers back on the map. Such a smooth beer. Looks and tastes incredible. The name might throw some people off, but don't let it. Love that it is in 4 packs of tall boys now
