Yes, my “bun” is sliced cucumber…
I drank this beer for Ryder’s birthday! I try not to drink during the week unless we’re celebrating a birthday. Of course I had to open one for my puppy boy’s special day. Before I opened the beer Ryder and I had just went on a 2 mile jog, so I was hot, and ready for something to quench my thirst.
I was so happy that my mom brought me one of these to try on Mother’s Day. I was very excited to taste Easy Jack since I’ve been a fan of Firestone Walker for quite some time now, and haven’t yet tried Easy Jack. I don’t know why but I haven’t been able to find it at my local shops.
This beer was ridiculously easy to drink. I guess that’s not surprising considering this is a low alcohol IPA. I love a good session IPA and I think this may be my new favorite. It’s brightly colored, has a great aroma, is light bodied, and has no sweet after tastes. As the beer warmed up the carbonation died down a bit and was almost flat making it even easier to drink.
Easy Jack paired excellently with my middle eastern inspired turkey burger that I had barbecued. I’d definitely say this beer can handle some heat. The burger had jalapeño and red pepper flakes in it and it took it like a champ.
This is a beer that I would buy in a heart beat, that is if I could find it! I think it’s an all around easy drinking beer, perfect for after work or on a weekend sunny day. It definitely made me excited for future warm days out on the back deck or sunny days at the beach.
