Description 

Jeez Louise is a pepper ale unlike any other. A pale ale at heart, this beer takes the highly revered Citra Hop and marries it with the Jalapeño Pepper in a brew that is light on heat and amazingly drinkable.

The soft water of Kiln really lets the Jalapeño flavor shine through allowing for a wonderful balance that showcases the flavors of both the hops and the peppers. The Citra Hops have refreshing tones of melon, passion fruit, and lychee thus providing a tropical atmosphere that lets the heat of the Jalapeño Peppers tease the taste buds.

Bringing together the sultry combination of malt, aromatic hops, and spicy peppers this balanced brew is approachable, quenchable, and shareable. Cheers Y’all.

Lazy Magnolia’s Jeez Louise is a multi-dimensional spice beer that fits the style quite well. This golden-colored, slightly hazy brew with a solid, fine bubble stand has a spicy peppery aroma with evident citrus notes. The flavor of this brew is a fascinating fusion of citrus and jalapeño character. The citrus comes from a huge hit of fresh Citra hop character, which is then balanced with a moderate level of jalapeño pepper flavor. The heat from the jalapeño is quite low, never dominating, which complements the tropical and citrus hop character quite well. The malt character is also quite subtle, with a moderate hop bitterness level, delivering a nice balance for the style. The brew is moderately carbonated.  

Overall, this is a quite refreshing and approachable brew that would work quite well as a summer thirst quencher with a little something extra.
