We honor our Pops with this beer. His vision built the Leisure Time ice brand decades ago and inspired us to build Jack’s Abby as a family business. Leisure Time Lager is brewed with wheat and a blend of spices including lemongrass, coriander, orange peel and chamomile. A subtle spiciness balances the citrusy and floral hops added to the whirl and hopback. Relax and enjoy! Leisure Time Lager uses locally grown wheat from MA.

500ml bottle. for $2.95

Very very light beer, hazed pale yellow color. Head is solid, creamy and holding well. Most likely from wheat content. Average carbonation level.

Smells of grassy hops. Some lemon. Slight sulfur notes from fermentation. Very mild aroma, really not much to it.

Wheat flavor comes through and lends a soft mouthfeel. Bitterness is nice and suiting. I hate to use the word watery, but this is watery. Comes off as refreshing, but I honestly don't like the flavor of this beer. It reminds me of a lot of mega industrial beers. I'm usually quite generous, but for me this lack anything descript.

Exceptional brewing Company though. I plan to keep trying their beers. It definitely matches a "American Pale lager". Its just awfully boring.

12 pack of cans for $18 from Yankee Spirits in Attleboro, MA. Last eight digits on the bottom of the can are 02022016, so I'll assume that's the date of bottling. It would be great to get that date clearly printed on the outside of the case.

Small head, hazy yellow body. Fresh and pleasant aroma of lemon and pepper. Flavor follows suit, but ends on the sweet and heavy side. This one has the makings of a refreshing session brew, but the bigger body and low carbonation kill that potential.

I'm a big fan of Jacks Abby, but this one I just don't get.

Pours pale yellow with some cloudiness and a white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell- Wheat and a hint of citrus

Taste- Wheaty and citrusy but not too strong. There is a hint of spices but very faint.

Mouthfeel-Slight carbonation and very smooth.

Overall- I'm not sure How I feel about this beer. It was really light on flavor but also kind of refreshing. A mediocre beer overall that could use some more flavor.

Not one of Jack's Abbey's finest. A decent beer to try.
