Half pint served into a Tom Collins glass of all vessels!

A- Dark mahogany brown with a ruby note when held up to the light. 1 finger head that has excellent retention. Excellent lacing produced from the nitro dispensing.

S- Next to nothing here, faint breadiness.

T- Very little here aswell, a faint malt sweetness with no hop bite of note. Unpleasant disinfectant like taste lingering after.

M- Low carbonation, creamy as expected

D- Albeit not expecting a flavour extravaganza here, the unpleasant aftertaste made this a beer to avoid. Uninteresting to the point im struggling to be in any way descriptive.

I sampled a pint of this whilst delayed at Inverness Airport, it is fairly common on the nitro taps in pubs around Scotland (especially on the east coast), but I have never seen it in bottle or cask form.

The beer poured well, a dark copper colour with a thick white head. This displayed excellent retention, lasting the duration of the pint and laced the glass with rings from start to finish. The best looking nitro beer I have ever seen.

The nose was dominted by bitter hops with a slight hint of fruitiness, too mild to identify which fruits though. The initial taste is dominated by fruitiness and hops, this slight bitterness then turns into an aftertaste of earthy malts with a slight note of almonds and caramel.

A good mouthfeel ensures that you remember you are drinking a beer, had my plane not arrived I would have ordered another. This is one of the better nitro pints I have had. But as with many mass produced beers, not enough flavours, a bit too boring.
