Half Acre Lager, the first release by Half Acre Beer Company is brewed using only water, hops, barley and yeast, making sure to respect the integrity of the brewing process and the purity of its ingredients. We chose to balance a rich malt base with a livlier hop content, encouraging a natural, vibrant taste and smell while maintaining the beer’s full body and cloudy, amber appearance. Half Acre Lager is suitable to pair with a range of cuisines and experiences during the season of your choice.

Brewed for Half Acre Brewing Company, Chicago

From a keg at a party. Pours frothy deep amber/orange. Light floral hop aroma. Flavor is well balanced, medium bodied with a strong malt backbone and light bitterness, but still refreshing. A great lager.

Golden and darker color with bubbly white head. Sweet and earthy, yet somewhat dull, aroma. Taste is malty, slight caremel. Not bad, but have had much better for this style

One of the better pale lagers I’ve ever had. Nice lively hop taste, without being an IPA. Refreshing. All pale lagers should be like this.

Poured from a growler from Half Acre. Pours a crystal clear, light amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is light, bready, faint bitter hops. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bread, nutty, some bitter pine hops, with a light bitter finish. Very nice.

Enjoyed on tap at the Half Acre taproom. Served in a pint glass. A: Pours a golden amber color with a pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin cap that leaves sticky sheets of lace down the glass. S: Vienna malt with light fruity hops. Some mild citrus with a lager yeast sweetness. T: Same as the nose. The Vienna malt is stronger and sweeter than the nose. Lagery yeast is present again with very light grass and fruity hops on the backend providing a touch of bitterness. M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet malt finish. O: Solid lager overall. Wouldn’t order this too often, but it’s very well put together. Serving type: bottle

5 ounce taster at the tap room, which is labeled on the menu as having a slightly heightened 6% abv. Aroma is funky, sweet malts. Appearance is golden with white foam on top, low amount of lacing and low bubble action. My tastebuds picked up on apple, bread, and some skunk. Palate is light and a little watery. Overall, this beer feels pretty traditional and sits in tough company among all the other creative options at the tap room. It’s still nice to have it available as a taste of the brewery’s beginnings.

Pours mid amber with malt notes off the start. Notes of dense grain drink quite refreshingly. For a straight up lager, this is fantastic.
