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.
