The Nimbus had a nose of apple juice. Nice appearance with copper/red coloration. Longer tongue-coating finish and good taste. Similar to wheat beer with raspberry overtones. No defined strong taste. Overall, it was a pretty good beer. I would drink it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: The beer is hazy amber orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation along with some particles resting at the bottom of the glass. It poured with a two finger high beige head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of doughy and earthy yeast are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste doesn't have very strong flavors and mostly consists of yeast.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't offer much in the way of malts or hops in the smell or the taste. I'm not sure if the beer I had was aged a bit, but if this was the case I wouldn’t expect that the malt flavors would disappear.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I poured thi beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer had no head what so ever. Bout as flat a beer look as I ever did see. The color was like diarrhea water. Cloudy looking ugly beer. However the smell was good and kinda nutty. Taste was also a little nutty and pretty darn good. Might just have got a old one. I will try this beer again.
