Post Shift Pilsner

Review Date 8/9/2021 By John Staradumsky

Jack’s Abby on tap at Taco Mac! I first was introduced to Jack’s Abby of Framingham, Massachusetts about 6 years ago. I was in Rhode Island and picked some up to bring back home to Georgia (a bit odd that, since Rhode Island was my home for decades before I moved to Georgia). Last November, a few Jack’s Abby beers were on the shelf at Total Wine when I dropped by, and of course I picked some up, but since then they’ve been scarce here as hen’s teeth.

Until now. I checked the beers on tap at my local Taco Mac, and lo and behold, there was Jack’s Abby Post Shift Pilsner listed for all to see. It was a few days before I could make it there, but when I did, I bellied up to the bar and ordered up a mug of Post Shift Pilsner straight away.

Jack’s Abby says:

There will be no working during drinking hours! Brewed with Bavarian malt and hops, this everyday Pilsner is bright, crisp and refreshing. We think it’s the perfect way to end the work day. Clock out, post-up and enjoy!

Jack’s Abby Post Shift Pilsner has an alcohol content of 4.7% by volume with 30 IBUs. I paid $6.80 for a 23-ounce mug at Taco Mac, and Total Wine sells it for $11.99 the 4-pack of pint cans.

My mug of Jack’s Abby Post Shift Pilsner arrived a bright golden color with a thin to medium white cap of foam and light grassy hops in the nose. A sip revealed crisp crunchy biscuit malt followed by herbal grassy hops in the long dry bitter finish.

A simple but very tasty German Pilsner, and one I am glad I came across. More Jack’s Abby Taco Mac, or I won’t ever return! OK, they know that’s an idle bluff. But I would love to see more Jack’s Abby all the same.

And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
