Half Acre is doing really cool stuff with beer here in Chicago, a solid Pils offering.

A - golden, straw and hay, off-sunflower yellow color. Bubbles abound at pour and a healthy, off-white head gathers not too generously at the top of the pint. Mild lacing indicative of the style upon consumption. Effervescence continued throughout enjoyment.

S - noble hops, straw and dried grasses, cotton linen, baked bread, cedar closets.

T - hits palate with a rush of grassy notes that unfold into equal balance of brioche, bread and butter, prairie grasses and hops. Gives subtle notes of lemon and grapefruit eventually.

M - Medium to off dry finish, mouthfeel is overall refreshing, but with no residual sweetness. It's somewhat lactic like butter at first with a later, drier quality like you're running in a field of wheat or prairie grass in late summer.

O - an enjoyable Pilsner that seemingly presents a slightly more prairie and buttery offering in this usually hop driven category of beers. Perhaps more seasonal to spring and summer, food pair it with fish of various preparations, light stone fruit like pear and apricot on a cheese plate or even warm cheese salads and crab or fish cakes.

Serving type: on-tap

A-Pours a clear yellow color with a bright white, frothy head. Long ropes of lacing along the glass.

S-Aroma is true to style. A nice cracker and cereal maltiness and some noble hoppiness. It is fairly aromatic with a certain zestiness to the nose.

T-I wasn't all too enamored with it upon first sip. During the second sip and there after, I became more impressed. The hops remain noble in flavor but I also go some tangy citrus. The cereal and cracker malt is very nice.

M-Light, crisp, drinkable. Everything a Pils should be.

O-Not bad. Surprised to see a Half Acre offering in these parts. I will always gladly try a Half Acre beer.
