Review: Half Acre Gossamer

In Beer Reviews by The Guys

Half Acre says:

“A drinker. This Golden Ale is a quality travel companion that aims to please with subtlety and aroma pop.”

Andrew: Perfect.summer.beer. I could stop there, and I think you would all understand what I mean.

This is the first beer that Half Acre has canned (TALL BOYS!) making it easy to transport to your favorite park or beach. Plus cans are a lot easier to recycle, or dispose of if you hate the environment.

We drank this beer straight from the can, just like we would if we were outside grilling and smoking cigars. A very refreshing beer with notes of lemon and citrus, something I could drink all day.

Ryan: This is such a great summer session beer.  Very light and refreshing. And, it comes in CANS!

Both the nose and taste of this beer is citrus-y.  Lots of lemons and limes.

Actually, I wrote down just one word to describe the taste; Squirt.  As in the soda, Squirt.

This is definitely one to stockpile to have after mowing the lawn, while grilling or at the beach.  Kudos to Half Acre for putting out a quality, sessionable golden ale.
