Jack’s Abby Brewing – Smoke & Dagger (Rauchbier)

  • 5.80% ABV
  • I have no idea what is going on but for some reason it looks like this is the first Rauchbier I have ever had. That is complete shit, I have had them and I really like them. I dont know what the hell is going on with MachineKit, but something is wrong this isnt the first Rauchbier I have had. That being said, this isnt the best Rauchbier I have ever had. It is missing that deep smokiness that is pretty much the benchmark of the style. I dont hate it but it is basically a slightly spicier tasting Schwarzbier.

Jack’s Abby Brewing – Hoponius Union (American Pale Lager)

  • 6.70% ABV
  • Thanks again to Gartard for another Boston hook up. I need to come up with a cool nickname for my North East beer pipeline… What ever. This is another American Pale Lager but with a much more pronounced hop taste. The brewer calls it a India Pale Lager and ignoing how cleaver they think they are I can see why they named it so. It is easily the most bitter lager I have ever tasted and the crispness of the lager really complements the hops. I am digging it.

Jack’s Abby Brewing – Jabby Brau (American Pale Lager)

  • 4.50% ABV
  • Hooray for having a beer pipeline up to Boston. I finally have something that I don’t hate about people from Boston. Thanks Gary, you no “R” pronouncing halfwit! Anyway, its been a long time since I have had an American Pale Lager and I am happy I am drinking this one. The brewer is weird in that they only brew lagers. I would have thought that isn’t enough different styles to make it your only type of brewing, but what ever. This has the crispness that I love about lagers but it doesnt taste like shit. Which is odd because most lagers are shitty. If you like Miller or Coor’s then you would probably LOVE this, I know I am.
