The first of Jakkalsvlei’s Craft Beer range, the Jackal Lager is a natural beer brewed locally according to the Reinheitsgebod method to ensure purity, clarity and excellence. Crisp and dry flavour with some low levels of grainy or malty sweetness. Hop flavour ranges from low to medium levels. Hop bitterness at low medium level. Balance may vary from slightly malty to slightly bitter, but is relatively close to even. Best enjoyed ice cold.
Pale golden to deep amber. Moderately large white to off-white head with good retention. Usually a moderate to high hop flavor, often showing a citrusy hop character. Low to moderately high clean malt character supports the hop presentation, and may optionally show small amounts of specialty malt character (bready, toasty, biscuity). The balance is typically towards the late hops and bitterness, but the malt presence can be substantial. Caramel flavors are usually restrained or absent.
