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.

Nitro pour at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club last night. Ticking beers and gigging. Not so bad.

Initially, the beer displays a turbulent and hazy storm, with granular sandy liquid gradually settling to a pretty ruby hued body with a thick and pure tan collar. The aroma brings some sweet malt, lightly fruity, grain notes. Similar flavor. The nitro-tap really does wonders for beers of this ilk. Smooth and creamy. Easy to drink. No harsh flavors detectable. Simple and easy going. Nothing to wrote home about, but this is a solid beer to find when I thought perhaps there may be no decent beer options.
