3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Jerry’s. Pale orange-gold with big, foamy, white head / Grassy, slightly sour nose of citrus and pine / Medium body, cask soft body with low carbonation, some sourness, a touch watery, otherwise good balance and lightly bitter finish / Lightly sour flavors of grass, dandelion, and dry pine, with notes of lemon and grapefruit / Probably not ready for prime time, but an interesting, herbaceous brew.

Draft at Jerry’s. Pale orange-gold with big, foamy, white head / Bright, sweet nose of citrus, honey, pine, and soap / Medium body, fat with low carbonation, a hint watery, with otherwise good balance and bitter finish / Flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, soap, fresh cut pine, and candied sugar / Moderate body issues detract from this potentially great beer.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a hazy, light Amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, orange, some pineapple. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bread, pineapple, maybe a little garlic, some pine, with a bitter pine finish that lingers for a while. Tasty.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a growler obtained at the brewery. Yellow with hints of orange, a thinner look than usual for half acre. Decent white head, good lacing. Smells very hoppy with a white grape (don’t know here, perhaps acidic light fruit like orange?) As well as the piney forest smell I’ve grown to love. The nose is interesting. Taste is good/great. The front has a nice amount of hop with citrus, the back is dry and finishes immediately. Great offering.

Draft at Half Acre Brewery, Chicago IL. Pours a straw golden with a white head that fades slowly. Nose has passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus. Taste is more passionfruit and toffee malts. Not much of a kick. Hoes down so fucking easy. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
