Notes/Commercial Description:
Pony is new to the scene, but we welcome this pilsner lager into the fold like an old friend. Pony is a crisp, clean pilsner you can saddle on up to the bar and order with a confident, rangy thunder. Get on yer stoop or prepare for the trek, there's a Pony in every pint.

16 ounce can poured into a half liter mug.
Brilliant gold, shining with bright clarity and completely free of haze. Rising trails of visible carbonation feed into a fluffy head of cottony foam. Five minutes in and there's still a finger of foam across the top. Surface texture is creamy with sticky collar that deposits drippy lace in the glass.

Aroma is crisp and clean, slight initial hint of sulfur from the lager yeast, becoming grassy and grainy after it sits for a few minutes.

Firm grassy bitterness with a crisp snappy bite, smooth and clean tasting. Very fresh and quenching, dry and not sweet. Flavors of crackers and grassy hops lending to a dry bitter finish. Truly sessionable and food friendly. A pretty nice textbook Pils that hits all the hallmarks with a slightly amped up hop bitterness for American palates. Subtlety is the name of the game. Nice to see Half Acre put a solid session lager into their rotation.
