It’s time to strap on that leisure suit and drink some lagers:
Jack’s Abby Leisure Time Lager – Pours a super light straw yellow color with a finger of puffy white head. Smells of typical Euro-lager aromas (mild, floral hops, lager yeast), with that wheat coming through well enough to differentiate it from the crowd. Taste is a bit muted, but that wheat is coming through more here, with the mild, floral hops fading into the background a bit. Mouthfeel is very light, crisp, and clean. Finishes dry and drinks really easy. Overall, it’s solid, would make a great lawnmower beer, but it’s not very assertive either. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that, and I’d choose it over any macro in a heartbeat, but it’s not really lighting my world on fire either. B
Beer Nerd Details: 4.8% ABV bottled (500 ml). Drank out of a tulip glass on 7/13/13.
Only one more Jack’s Abby beer left in my stash. So far, so good, though not quite the mind-blowers that I’ve been lead to expect (then again, I haven’t had a lot of their more prized brews either, so I’m certainly going to keep an eye out for more from them!)
