Mild smoke, softly complex array of spices. Light fruity esters. Grainy sweet maltiness
Light Grainy malt, moderately bright herbal and floral spices with a soft bacony smoke all over a balanced sweetness. Light fruitiness. Light hop bitterness. Grainy malt and herbal spice dominate the aftertaste.
Medium light body, medium carbonation. Very crisp
This is oddly welcoming. While the flavors are overall, moderately light, the complexities make it quite exciting.

Saturated orange color, bright clarity, an inch of white foam on top. Lasting retention with drippy lace, and a sticky collar around the edges.
Savory aroma of mild smoke and light spices, the initial whiff of yeast from the bottle was a little jarring, but as it warmed in the glass it opened up a lot.
Flavors of mild smoke, sage, very light caraway and rosemary, a mild bitterness in the aftertaste and a hint of honeyed malt. Dry finish. Fairly light bodied, not a heavy or sweet brew, emphasis is on the smoked malt and added spices. Overall it's an interesting combination, though somewhat mild overall. A little more smoke or caraway would be welcome in the next batch...

Reading the description, one may think this will be a dark brew. It's not. The Hunter gets Captured by the Game is a clear amber beer with a minimal head due to the growler being popped yesterday.
The nose is strong and spicy from the herbs. Pepper and Bay leaf, Rosemary and Caraway combine for an interesting and unique aroma.
The taste is slightly smokey with a burst of of full flavor that is herbal, floral, spicy with a pepper bite. The Bay leaf and caraway are pronounced but the Rosemary is less discernible. It's flavor is much different brewed in a beer. This beer is complex and the herb flavors combine into a deliciously complex blend. The herbal/floral flavors last long then transition to a spicy, crisp ending.
Overall I enjoyed this one. It is a nice change of pace and a perfect winter offering. Unique, complex, one of a kind. I loved Half Acre's Sunday in Saigon brewed with Thai Basil so the herbal experiments are very good so far. Keep on experimenting Half Acre!

On-tap at the Half Acre Taproom. Served in a 5oz taster glass.
A - White foam settles to a partial cap, thick collar, and plenty of lacing. Lightly hazed dark orange body.
S - A mix of smoke, toasted caraway seeds, and rosemary; reminds me of a savory broth or rosemary chicken a bit.
T - The taste reveals a bit more of the base beer, with bready malts, a bit of smoke, light doughy sweetness, and an finish with the aforementioned spices. The combination of bready malts and caraway evokes rye bread, although I'm not sure if there's any rye malt actually in here.
M - Smooth, medium body, pleasant carbonation, a lightly dry and clean finish, and no discernible alcohol.
D - This was alright, but it's a bit out there. Successful at what it sets out to do (and would probably be killer for cooking with), but it's not something I could drink in large quantities. If you like spiced and/or smoked beers give it a shot.
