Jalehouse Beer (Turtle Distributing Co.)

This light lager offers a full body taste, clean crisp flavor and a subtle hop aroma. Created using an American style Hallertau hop and two-row malt to ensure a refreshing finish with no after-taste.

My friend Gonzalo was in Florida visiting relatives over the Christmas Holidays and brought me back a few local beers. So the next few reviews will be Florida brews.
The beer pours a pale straw with yellow hues and a diminishing bright white head.
The nose is modest with some light pale malt aromas with sweet citrus notes. There is little to no hop presence on the nose.
The taste starts out with a pale malt sweetness up font, followed by a cleansing effervescence as the beer washes over the tongue in the middle of the sip. The back-end is extremely easy drinking with an effortless swallow. The finish is really nice and refreshing with pale malts and citrus notes. There is very little of a final aftertaste, just a hint of citrus.
This is really a nice beer. Yes, it is extremely light but it does have a nice summer light malt flavor with very refreshing citrus notes on the finish.
I am really enjoying this. It will make a nice refreshing summer picnic beer.
What a great summer session.
I’m not getting that typical lager harshness. This is sweet, refreshing and quite enjoyable.
I realize that here is almost nothing to this style but this is actually quite good with nice pale malt flavors and citrus. I think this is the best light lager that I’ve had.
It is warming a little and it is not picking up any off flavors or harshness. That’s another plus in my book.
What a nice little beer. I would certainly have this again on a hot summer day.
Well, here I am again struggling with a rating. Even though my ratings are by style it is still difficult for me to give a beer like this an A, even though it deserves it by style. OK I just talked myself into it. I’m going to give this an A for a Light Lager.
I can’t believe the beer snob just gave an A to a Pale Lager but compared to everything else that I have had in this style it is an A for sure.
A | Jalehouse Light is an excellent Light Lager with nice pale malt flavors with refreshing citrus notes making it a thirst quenching perfect summer session.
