3.88/5 rDev +6.9%
Growler --> consumed via pint glass
A - Nice fluffy white head with some retention. Hazy golden color - surprisingly bright in color
S - Placebo corn smell. I refuse to believe I smelled it, but there seemed to be a hint there. Fresh grains with an earthy sweetness.
T - Surprisingly sweet, bright herbal notes with strong acidity. Alcohol shows up rapidly as temperature warms. Sweet Maltiness is constant.
M - Smooth finish early, acidity comes in late.
O - Not ideal for a growler - longer stay in brings out the acidity and alcohol. Great for a pint straight from the tap. Impressive visually, has a nice bite and good carbonation.

Growler from Half Acre. Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.
A - White foam settles to a solid cap and splotchy lace - good retention for the style. Hazy peach body.
S - Toasted grains, a bit of starchy popcorn, slight lemony grassy hop notes.
T - There's a little more malt sweetness here, some nebulous fruitiness, yeasty bread and starchy grains, and well-hidden alcohol.
M - Chewy body, pleasant carbonation, dry finish, and fairly low alcohol warmth for an 8% beer. Pretty smooth stuff
D - This was pretty good, although the booze does creep up on you. I was initially skeptical about this beer, first after the description, and then after the extended lagering time, but this turned out quite well. For a malt liquor...err, 'International Lager' this is among the best in style. I had a few pour with Jason on Friday, and then polished off the growler with friends the next day.

Poured from a 64oz growler into a 20oz imperial pint.
A: Pours a bright & brassy gold with 2 fingers of bright white foam on top. Retention is decent and a few ropes/drapes decorate the glass. Hazy clarity and relaxed carbonation complete the picture.
S: Suprisingly floral and herbal notes meld nicely with elements of fresh bread and white corn. Alcohol shows off a little as it comes up to temp.
T: Sweet, toasty corn and bread with the aforementioned floral/herbal qualities. Picked up a touch of white grape towards the end of each pour. As above, alcohol becomes more apparant as it warms.
M: Full and slick with a fair amount of alcohol prickle. Finishes with some corn-y sweetness.
O: Very nice, but as the growler wore on, the alcohol presence became a tad too obvious. Quite likeable, but would've loved if this weighed in closer to the 5%-6% range.
