A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #952 – Lervig – Lucky Jack

Lervig Lucky Jack. Beer club beer. I may be behind, I’ve been under the weather, and this really is the best I’ve felt for literally weeks, since before my knee operation and that was mid June. I’m going to also have to admit to being rusty and confusing the APA and the IPA, but then it’s just a video, and no one watches those.

due to its light body

Canned craft beer that is 4.7% ABV, a beer that is  45IBU, and around the 141 calories a serve size, this would be some standard drinks

Brewed by Lervig Aktiebryggeri in the Style that is of an  American Pale Ale and they are in Stavanger, Norway

uncouth chap and a can

An unfiltered & unpasteurised APA from the west coast of Norway.

Brewed with Amarillo, Chinook and Citra Hops. Although the hops are the dominating flavour and aroma, the beer is easy drinking due to its light body from the pale malts and caramel malt.

It offers a golden colour with 45 IBUs, grapefruit, tropical fruit and floral hoppy flavours & aromas.

So, What could possibly go wrong?

I dislike canned beers these days, the cans are too flimsy and the contents too full and I invariable end up squeezing too hard to get the top open and the resulting slippage and overspill is just plain annoying. mumble mumble…

Nice fresh aroma though, brilliant clear foamy head popped thought the opening.

Lovely colour on the pour and a lovely head the forms stark white on the golden contents.  Aroma is a little subdued but mostly a dull ache of cut grass hop type thing.

Tart and sharp bitter to start with that transitions over the tongue and ends up at a dry finish with that bitterness lingering around. I’m not sure if I’m satisfied, surprised or amazed.

It’s a bit average and middle of the road and gets tired easily in the glass becoming rather dull, with almost an earthy taste at the end.

It did start off with a hiss and roar though, but then it just couldn’t keep it up.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. I don’t think there is anything I could say other than this is about average as beers go, there’s not much of a redeeming feature about it. Pleasant enough, but doesn’t set the world alight.

The double dip review

  • Where did I get it? BeerJerk beer club. 
  • Am I enjoying it? I’m not not enjoying it.
  • Would I have another? No.
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? No, apart from being from an exotic place there’s not a lot else to talk about.
