Poured off nitro-tap.
A- Poured a coppery amber color. Nitro pour gives a nice 2 finger cream colored head that shows good retention. The overall head looks a little fake like most nitro pours. There was a ton of sheet style lacing.
S- Light aroma of roasted malts in the front with hints of nuts as well. Caramel malts also play a part toward the middle to ending. Light alcohol aroma lingers with a very light hopping of Euro hops.
T- Roasted malts in the front of the beer gives way to light caramel malts right behind it. Middle of the beer shows off a darker fruit flavor that is light overall. The ending of the beer is more or less caramel malts blending with a nutty flavor. Ending of the beer shows a bitter hop bite and almost no alcohol at all.
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Roasted malts and caramel malts are left on the palate. Aftertaste is caramel and roasted malts with light nutty flavors that blend with alcohol. Flavors overall were balanced well for the style. No off flavors were present while drinking this one. Light alcohol drying on the palate.
O- This beer is light everywhere except in the appearance. A interesting beer for the fact that I didn't expect much of this and it delivered a little more than I thought it would.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Nitro-tap at The Norseman, Dublin, Ireland
A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high creamy off white head that died down but has excellent retention properties, consistently leaving a half finger high head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the smell.
T: Like the nose, the taste has light flavors of pale malts. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and is very creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The nitro-tap makes this beer have an incredible mouthfeel that is both creamy and smooth.
Serving type: nitro-tap
