The beer comes in a beautiful clear dark rich ruby color with a thick whtie head.

The aroma has pine and grapefruit. Some caramel malt sweetness.

The beer has a wonderful caramel malt that is sweet, but clean and not sticky. A piney and spicy bitterness throughout. Almost reminds me of the hop character of Celebration. A medium mouthfeel.

A delicious hoppy beer with great balance and clean flavors.

Appearance: Very slight chill haze on an orange-tinged copper. Head is off-white, creamy, and has solid retention. Moderate carbonation.

Smell: Slight caramel sweetness. Bread crust with some slight roasted and toasted elements. Hops are leafy, a touch earthy, with some slight bitterness. Mild overall. A touch nutty. Some mild hints of almost chocolate.

Taste: Toasted grass and dirty earth. Lingering caramel malt sweetness. A moderate malt sweetness. Bready. Hops run with a touch of citrus. Mostly herbal and grassy with some leafy elements. Nice and clean. Soft hint of chocolate layered through the back. Slight overall bitterness. Carries the Jack's Abby lager yeast finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium leaning toward light body with a moderate carbonation. Clean and a touch dry on the finish.

Overall: Bobby Lashley approved.

Pushes towards a colder season lager. Nice and malty with an assertive yet not aggressive hop character. Solid, but under performs against the rest of the lineup.

A- Dull ruby red colored translucent body with an off-white head of two inches. Excellent head retention with sticky lacing.

S- Malty copper-esque notes. Nothing jumps out at me but that's probably to style.

T- Well balanced...nice malt backbone but enough piney/spicy hops to know they are there. Doesn't drink near it/s stated 6.8%abv.

M- Medium mouthfeel, biting carbonation.

D/O- Well, the drinkability is there but given it's high ABV for an amber lager it shouldn't be viewed as a session beer. Thanks for this oft-overlooked style @mj0126

Picked up at Julio's and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice dark amber/copper hue with a good two finger off white head that faded to leave light lacing and a creamy halo with light clouds. Quite nice.

S - Light sweet malts, faint lager yeast and pleasant piney hops. Not nearly as potent as their other lagers though.

T - Taste is nice. Nice pines, good lager yeast notes. Hops are nicely spicy pine with some good malt sweetness and faint caramel to balance things out.

M - Mouthfeel is nice with brighter carbonation, however, the alcohol is not hidden nearly as nicely as other offerings. It (the alcohol) actually lingers, which, I find rather unpleasant.

O - Overall, a solid offering from Jack's Abby. Not their best, but, not their worst either.
