Presentation: On draft @ The Pheonix Landing, Central Square, Cambridge, MA.
Appearance: Deep hazy amber, with a rich look to it. A creamy off-white head site a top, stays and sticks (poured through a Nitro system).
Smell: Semi-medicinal aroma with hidden sweet malts in the background.
Taste: Extremely smooth. Well rounded mouthfeel. Toasted, caramel and sweet malt flavours (likened to unfermented wort). A bit of a spicy, lemony hop flavour begins about 3/4 of the way through and dries, then balances the malt profile. Finishes sweet with a bit of medicinal flavour.
Notes: This is a fairly rich, robust and extremely drinkable Pale Ale. Makes for a great session beer as it goes down with no effort.
Serving type: nitro-tap
