Pours like bud. No aroma. Easy to drink. Slightly bitter. Best reason to drink- great price at portofinos in Chicago.

Can poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark gold with 2 fingers thick white head. Aroma of straw and grain with a little earthy herbal hoppiness and something slightly sweet. Taste is light bitter. Earthy and herbal with grains and a little more sweetness in the finish. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Not my favorite beer but very drinkable.

Tap at Half Acre Tap Room, Chicago. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a malty liqourice hoppy palate. Nothing too special for me.

Can, as pictured. Pours a hazy gold. Smells of citrus hops - lemon, orange. Crisp, light mouthfeel, nice on a hot summer day. Half Acre is great at these lighter beers.

Cans from West Lakeview Liquors. The pour is a golden color with a thin white head on top. It’s a bit bready in the aroma and there’s a stronger whiff of citrus and pine hops than expected. A touch of corn enters the mix as an afterthought. Light-bodied, refreshing, perhaps a little watery, though. The flavor offers bread, grain notes, some herbal hops, and a little citrus. Spotty lacing trickles along the sides of the glass but never really amounts to much. It has a slightly dry and hoppy finish. Simple and pretty solid.

fluffy (1600) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2013
decent slightly musty hoppiness on the nose. flavor is like a pale but brighter, almost like a pilsner, decent hop notes with some green apple and a bit of black pepper in the background. i could drink this one pretty regularly.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle in Chicago with TheAlum. Thanks Adam! Pours a hazy golden appearance with a white head. Grassy, somewhat fruity, lemon, herbal aroma. Clean, herbal/ light grainy, a bit floral flavor. Not bad.
