Easy Drinkable Beer. Its a crisp ale almost pilsner in taste. Very light with strong citrus taste of apricot and light lemon or other citrus I canít place. Its a great alternative to the majors just not a very complex beer and its their first product so clearly they are working to bring in the masses and this product can definitely do that. Its not world class but it is certainly a solid entrant to the craft brewing arena that Stamford and Fairfield County have been missing since New England moved out years ago...

12oz can. Looks golden. Aroma of floral hops, pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average to lighter texture. A pretty boring beer.

Can freshly dropped off according to their Facebook page. Glad to support a local! Pour has a clean golden color and a thin coating of white head that slowly fizzled off. Aroma has light dry hops, citrus, and pale malts. Mouth feel is good and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has a light pale malted base, dry hops, citrus, and a touch of bitterness into the finish. This is extraordinarily drinkable and the 5.2% level is perfect session strength. Just wish they dated the cans,

Boring, tasteless, uninteresting. Itís basically a craft Bud Light. I understand theyíre trying to brew a light beer, but it can still have some flavor profile.

Draught from sweet grass in Tarrytown NY. Plain pale gold pour. Some light citrus and maltiness bit fairly plain. In.

Ok beer. Lemon and crisp hops in aroma and flavor. A little light. Itís not bad by any means, but it doesnít stand out either.

Light hop aroma with hints of malt. Clear orange color with a small white head. Moderate bit hop beginning that slowly fades in the finish.

Draft @ Bradfordís in Stamford, CT. This is a really tasty, clean brew. Light-mediumly bodied, this beer is crisp and clean and has a nice lemon and grapefruit zing. Little bit of breadiness provides balance to the beer. Solid offering from Half Full.
