Cask at Half Acre. Served in a 13oz snifter.

A - White foam settles to a collar, thin cap, and splotchy lacework. Hazy orange body; guessing the cloudiness is from the cask or tea.

S - Green tea is certainly potent, and it's supported by Kölsch yeast, cereal grains, and sweet stone fruit malt flavors. Interesting mix of flavors, and they don't seem to clash thankfully. Low in sweetness.

T - The taste has more of the base beer's peach, cereal grains, and nebulous fruity yeast. Tea is present, but less intense, and thankfully doesn't impart much astringency.

M - Medium body, soft, creamy and chewy texture. Pleasant cask-style carbonation.

D - I liked this significantly more than C Change, although I'm uncertain if it's due to the cask treatment rather than the tea addition. Enjoyable, but one of Half Acre's less compelling Firkin Friday offerings.
