Jack's Abby House Lager (2019)

What the brewers say

"What the Helles is a Landbier? Ours is sweet and golden with a full malty body, inspired by the country lagers of Bavaria."

What our panel thought

"A spicy hops character dominates the beer, and the malt bill has a caramel quality to it that leaves a cloying character on the finish. It's a beer that you can play beer pong with, share at a cookout, or nurse over a good book. Does it change the world? No. But that's not the point of this style."

What our editors thought

"Cracker malt on the nose teases a sweetness that (thankfully) never materializes, as a gently pointed carb levitates that light but characterful malt right over the tongue."
