3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. can. Dark mahogany color with small off white head. Aroma is mostly malt (nutty) and yeast. Flavor is roasted grain, light toffee and a light hop bitterness on the back end of the sip. Body is appropriate for the style, soft carbonation, balanced sweet and bitter. The overall impression of the beer is good. However, it just seems a tad boring. I appreciate the classic brewing of the style (nothing is out of place here) perhaps my beer ego has reached a new level. Maybe I have now escalated into a whole new snob category….

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft. Amber Brown with thin head. Immediately smell the malty nuttiness of this. Smells almost like a Scotch ale but upon sipping it is lighter bodied and not quite as nutty as a brown ale. Sweet all the way through with a slight bitter aftertaste. No real hop presence here. This would be a good beer for the fall...a little too thick feeling for my summertime night.

From a 16 oz can. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, and light pine. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, caramel, and light pine. This beer is decent, not really a brown ale guy. The flavors are all pretty light in general. Worth trying if your a fan of half acre.!

Tap @ Half Acre with TheAlum. Pours a reddish brown appearnce with a light brown head. A touch nutty, caramel, a bit spicy hoppy aroma. Well balanced, toasty malty, a bit citrusy hoppy flavor. Not my favorite but pretty easy to drink.
