On nitro at many establishments around Boston.

The same rich and creamy head you would expect from anything on nitro, bright brassy colour shines in the light. Sweetish malty aroma with a faintness of hop.

There is that creamy nitro body again, thicker than it actually is. Malty sweet with a light metallic caramel malt note, some hop bitterness to balance and a cleaner finish than I expected.

This is one nitro-tap that I opt for over Guinness if they don’t have Murphy’s. I gladly quaffed many pints of this Monday, March 17th 2003.

Serving type: nitro-tap

On tap: A caramel-amber beer with an off-white creamy nitro head -- that stays, sticks and tracks down the glass. Soft aroma with a touch of sulfur, and a soft malt flavour with toasted, smokey and woody/sulfur notes.

Without the nitro, this beer would be just an average ale. With the nitro and it takes on the characters of all other nitros ... an easy drinky, eye-candy pleasing beer. Lovely stuff.

Serving type: nitro-tap

I think I found one of my new favourite beers.
Pours a clear coppery color with about a finger of two of solid just slightly off-colour head with a decent retention.
The aroma is extra nice. Some malts, some fruity smell but mostly biscuity and nutty notes, easily picked up by the nose.
The taste is likewise, amazing. Starts sweet and is followed by nice biscuity body, slight bitterness towards the end, and finishes with a nice spicy finish.
Easily drinkable, smooth, delicious. Just great.
