Coming off a mess of high ABV, big flavor brews lately, this is a nice little change of pace.
Basically a pretty, nitro-ed light biscuit-thing. Big, long lasting and pretty nitro-white head, lots of lacing. Think a clear red-brown Guinness if you can't picture it.
Tastes and smells basic, light toasty biscuit malts, just the barest hint of singed sugars (caramel), lightly sweet and creamy all around. Bits of lemon-sour flavor and a pleasing toasty dryness. Nitro carb is well done and makes this a very easy drink.
This is a solid simple beer and a step up from Boddingtons and other "pub" nitro can beers like it. Not going to blow your socks off but you sure can drink it, and it's characterful enough to be a go-to brew. I'll certainly have it again.
Serving type: nitro-can

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.
