First had: on nitro at Barrier

It's always neat to see non-stouts on nitro. Medium bronze color, capped with a thick, creamy, off-white head that coated the glass with lacing. Sweet malts in the aroma, light caramel, not much else. Mild taste of sweet malts, toasted cereal grains, light leafy / earthy hops. No surprises here. Nitro gave a nice smooth texture to the beer, medium body, and quite drinkable overall. Appropriate for the style.

On draft at Press 195, Rockville Centre, NY.

Poured a medium copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft doughy malt with a vibrant herbal hop.

The taste consisted of clean grainy malt, crisp crackers and a leafy herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was clean with a lingering bitterness.

Overall a very tasty and super drinkable bitter.

Thanks dragonWhale for an opportunity to try this beer. Poured from a 22oz bomber that was sent my way in a BIF. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy and cloudy. Straw yellow to almost copper color with a thin eggshell white head that quickly subsides.

S- Sweet biscuit malt aromas Hints of mild fruity notes. Not much hops detected from the pour.

T- Malty and sweet, biscuit flavors. Lots of fruity notes. A nice dry finish to end the dip.

M- Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

O- A pretty good session beer. Not great, but good to have a lot of and not worry about getting smashed. Wouldn't mind having again but wouldn't search out for it.

4.13/5  rDev +13.5%

A: Completely clear, golden colored. A couple of fingers of white head that dissolve slowly leaving some lacing.

S: Biscuity malts with faint floral hops.

T: Dry, biscuity malt again with very little hop character. The hops do leave a mild, lingering bitterness, and the malt flavor stays with you for a while too. The taste is pretty simple, but it is very well balanced and not watery.

M: Medium with good carbonation.

O: There is nothing extraordinary about this beer, but it is exactly what it should be. It is very drinkable, and the flavor kept me coming back for more.

Had this on tap in Brooklyn. Excited to see these rare beers. Had a few good ones so far. Poured deep amber almost like a copper color. Had intense herbal and floral hop aroma. Not sweet or enticing like a west coast amber. Taste was off. Seemed a little catty to me. Real dank and herbal. Catty wompus? The flavors are not coming together. Maybe that's how it got it's name. I need to try others.

CATTY NOT FOR ME

On draft at Pony Bar. The beer is clear and pale yellow with a thin white collar. The aroma offers bread, toasted grain, fairly fruity and sweet. A bit rough on the palate, with a bready character, slightly charred. Lingering bitterness. Overall, mediocre.
