BEER INFO

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

Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Deep golden in color, this low ABV lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with an aromatic American hop aroma. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavorful and drinkable for the lightest beer we brew. We dub this beer a "Session Lager," as we once again brew a lager in a beer style of its own. Uses local Soft Red Winter Wheat from Four Star Farms.

I was jazzed to try their straight up lager they offer alongside their beer geek offerings as it will show me their lager brewing chops without smoke or hops covering anything up. Almost $10 for a four pack of half liter bottles prices this one just out of range as daily drinking beer, but good enough for occasional purchase.

Pours a deep yellow body with bone white head that quickly settled back to a thin film. Up front spicy aroma followed by the same in flavor. A weird rubbery flavor appears in the middle which of somewhat off putting but is short lived. Grassy and spicy hop flavor take over and dominate the profile. Bitteness seems a bit much against the characterless malt profile which detracts from its drinkability.

This wasn't horrible but kind of clunky and disjointed for a drinkable lager.
