Notes/Commercial Description:
There was a time when children ran around loose and fearless, getting filthy and being perfectly reckless. Kids kicked the crap out of each other and instantly let it go, they built unsafe structures to call their own and lived far more free of the burden of being broken. At some point helmets took over, little hands made cel phone calls to check in and parental reign created a claustrophobic, false sense of safety.

In remembering a time when kids ran wild, we brewed The Hammer, The Bullet, & The Vise. A nutty and soft english brown beer brewed with all German malts to lull your mind.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Just picked up from Half Acre in a Growler

A: Dark brown with a finger high light tan foam head. Very nice lacing on the glass throughout.

S: A very smooth toasted, caramel, and nutty aroma. No noticeable hop aroma.

T: Smell and taste are very similar. A large amount of malt character that is very smooth.

M: Medium-to-heavy body. Carbonation level is perfect. Very smooth and easy to drink.

O: Probably one of the best examples of an English Brown Ale I've ever had. I'm hoping they end up bottling this one at some point.

Serving type: growler
