Appearance: Pours with a light golden yellow color. A finger of crisp white bubbly head is produced. Active carbonation is surprisingly low for the style.

Smell: Butter and doughy malts shine on the front. Straw hop accents follow quickly after. There are some light, yet well complimenting fruit accents of pineapple, kiwi, and grapefruit. The dough and crisp yeast brings this brew full circle.

Taste: Big front of earthy malts and grassy hops. The hops take on some more herbal accents on the body as creamy doughy malts carry on the undertones throughout. Crisp wheat and yeast shine on the back end with some lingering hop notes.

Mouthfeel: Creamy front yields to a crisp hop and yeast finish. Carbonation is lower then expected but still has a potent impact.

Overall: A tasty creation from Half Acre. I always look forward to trying their lesser known options and am usually very pleased. Plenty of hop complexity to keep the drinker interested, yet has many checkpoints I look for in a great pils. Well done.
