look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Mahogany reddish colour, close to 2 fingers of creamy eggshell/tan coloured head, some rings of lace at the top of the glass. Smell is malty and almost cereal like, some nutty scents come off of this, lightly sweet toffee and carmel are present but are minimal, for the most part this had a fairly neutral aroma. Taste is a little better, cereal like malts, earthy and nutty flavours, light sweetness and caramel, light bitterness towards the finish, clean aftertaste. The nitro made this creamy and light but unfortunately also makes this close to flat, light carbonation and feel. A pretty ho-hum offering and not something I would order again unless of course I found myself in an undesirable bar with limited offerings like the one I consumed this one in.
