COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This winter glider is a concept reserved for the haul, the long push, the times when the day extends into the night. Roast punch and hop slice make this black ale your solution to winter sessions.

Wow a low ABV with big flavor session beer. Poured a dark clear brown with tanish head. Smell is pure freshnes of roasted malts and resinous hops. Taste is right on with the aroma. Crisp finish with a hoppy kick. this one is great!

Opaque dark brown with a tan head. Piney hop aroma with some roast. Taste is quite dry with roast and long resiny hop finish, Thin texture to be expected from 3.5%. Every brewery should make flavourful low ABV beers like this.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2011 Growler filled this past Friday... Growler opens with a mild hiss and yields a mostly opaque slightly darker than cola porter-like hue. A fluffy light beige head rests on top and lingers on for a bit... Citrusy green hop aroma with some nice roast complimentary notes, more hoppy than roasted malt... Flavors are more of the same with fresh hop and an equal degree of roasted malt. Light bodied and completely drinkable. A fruity backdrop also exists and goes well with the hop forward style of beer although really not quite resembling a mild. tasty and drinkable with a low abv to boot. very nice.

Growler from Half Acre. Big, dark brown pour with a tan head that clings to the glass. Aroma of chocolate, roast, strong pine and resin, toast, caramel, mild cookie dough. Smells great. Flavor is astonishing. A ton of flavor packed into a low abv session beer. Chocolate, pine, pumpernickel bread. Lots of resiny hops. Some dark chocolate and fudge notes. Mouthfeel is this with nice active carbonation. This is absolutely wonderful. Supremely drinkable. Another winner from Half Acre.

Growler fill from Half Acre. Pours really dark brown, nearly black with a light tan head. The nose is a surprise. Super hop forward, light roast. Resiny pine is dominant. Like Alpha Klaus’s little brother. On tasting, quite refreshing with some drying roast and a big hop flavor. Piney and some light citrus. Pretty fresh and clean, no real astringency. Really interesting beer here and different.
