This is a review of the nitro tap pale ale.

To preface, I do not think this one works on nitro too well.

Pours a dark orange color with almost no head. Aroma of flowers and sweet candy and some yeast. Tastes very dry. Lots of lemon and orange and an overall dry citrus taste. The body of this beer is very watery. The lack of carbonation gives this an awkward stale apple juice feel and taste. This beer really did not sit too well on me. Bottle and standard tap options are very appropriate as this can be a tasty pale ale when fresh but the lack of carbon dioxide changes this one.
