Beer on nitro-tap at the brewpub. The brewer's description, "English pub ale served via our nitro tap for a creamy refreshing treat. Mild toasty malt and floral hops lead the way with a touch of fruit and sweetness." I classified this as a bitter, if this is an error please submit a correction.

Beer is amber to yellow and really hazy with a soft white head of tiny bubbles that completely coat the glass with lacing, the aeration is moderate to low. Looks good.

Aroma is a little blank, not much going on in the nose unfortunately, you smell some grains.

Beer is really thin and tastes almost like nothing on the lead off, the mouthfeel is creamy and the finish is oddly bitter. The bitterness kind of comes out of no where. Just not feeling this one. I drank an entire pint but I won't have it again. Not my favorite.
