Scuttlebutt regularly offers one beer served on nitro. On my arrival it was their red ale, Sequoia. The name is earned with its polished redwood color showing resilient clarity and abundant lace. The taste and aroma evoke musty, earth notes with a light ashen finish. All aspects of Sequoia add up to a smooth, refreshing, easily-quaffed ale of gently spiced balances. Novices will find its simplicity inoffensive. Veterans will know its subtlety as refined.

I had this beer on-tap at the brewery in a six-ounce sample glass.
Appearance: light, slightly brownish amber with a touch of haze and one finger of creamy ivory foam. Not bad.
Smell: light citrusy hops. This is pretty spot-on for an enticingly citrusy and refreshing hop aroma.
Taste: quite malty, but well balanced by citrusy hops. Overall, a pretty good beer.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good consistency. There's also enough carbonation left to yield a little cream on top of an already-good mouthfeel. I rather like it.
Drinkability: this was a relatively tasty and quaffable session brew. I would have this again.
I want to note that I also tried a sample of this on regular carbon dioxide as well as on nitro, and found it to be quite similar: the mouthfeel wasn't really changed much by the nitro. It is worth noting, however, that the nitro version had a *much* better aroma than the carbon dioxide version. I chose to give the beer the benefit of the doubt and rate the version I preferred.

I had Sequoia Red at the brewery, served in a pint glass.
Pours a redish/brown color and is hazy. A thick bubbly off-white head caps the beer, and sticks aruond on the sides of the glass..
Smell is piney (sequoia maybe) with a sour smelling fruity aroma along side.
Taste is a bready biscuit flavor up front with a mildy bitter citrus finish.
Mouthfeel is fullbodied and slightly cloying.
Sequoia Red is a drinkable brew, but the flavor and mouthfeel can be a little overpowering. Not a very sessionable selection I'm afraid.
