Jack’s Abby Jabby Brau

Brewery: Jack’s Abby Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 4.5%
Style: American Pale Lager / IPL
Other Notes: 20 IBUs. Malt – Pilsner, Munich.

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Deep golden in color, this lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with aromatic American hops. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavourful and drinkable, we dub this beer a “Session Lager.” Jabby Brau uses locally sourced ingredients.

My rating: 2

Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with no bottled on date and poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a light one finger white head that dissipates to a foamy layer with only very light lacing.
Aroma: Bready malts, pine and some light citrus orange peel, lemon and lime.
Taste: Grassy, honey and brown sugar sweetness, caramel and bready malts, corn and light hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, light bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: I’m not normally a lager person, but Jack’s Abby are definitely changing my views and showing me what can actually be done with lagers. In this case, Jack’s Abby has produced another lager that would better most, but still falls a little flat.
