Jack’s Abby House Lager

Jack’s Abby is now available in Pennsylvania too, so I get it a lot more easily than I used to. I still want to make a trip out to the brewery, but I haven’t had a chance yet. I’m thinking that maybe when we go to Maine next, we can detour to the brewery on the way up. This was a beer that I picked up in Pennsylvania awhile back.


ABV: 5.2%

Style: Munich Helles Lager

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “House Lager pulls inspiration from the numerous country lagers, or landbiers, found in Franconia. It’s sweet and golden with a full malty body that comes from using a traditional German malt variety. A special beer for year-round enjoyment.”

Random: This beer comes in at 18 IBUs and is available year-round.

The brew poured with a one finger, pure white head. It went away quickly, but left no lacing on the glass. Instead, a small crown was left on the straw yellow body. It was clear and had moderate carbonation. The nose was filled with warm pilsner malt and a slight honey sweetness. The taste was sweet with wildflower honey. It had pilsner malt as well and a touch of mineral water. The body was thin and crisp with moderate carbonation. It had a quick finish with wildflower honey. The pounder can was $1.54, which broke down to $.10 per ounce. This was a simple, but very drinkable beer. If you’re looking for a beer to convert a macro drinker, this would be a good choice.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
