Pour is light amber, little to no head. Sweet caramel malts and some thanksgiving spice with hints of pepper and sugar. Taste is caramel malts being taken by iced tea with some light peppery spice and a touch of hearbal hops. Creamy body, low carb from cask, a touch oily. Iced tea flavor dominates and is not my cup of tea.

LOOK: Nitro pour at the brewery, pours a very light brown with a creamy, silky foam that laces the entire glass.

SMELL: Light nose of bready malts and a whiff of noble hop flowers.

TASTE: Upfront it tastes like a very mild English pub ale much akin to the commercially available pale milds in nitro cans, perhaps with less character. Really light malt flavor, nothing much to report. The beer gets a light nutty note in the finish, and had a small note of mildly bitter, tea like hops.

OVERALL: A decent, run of the mill mild. The nitro made it drink like water, and nothing was off but it was surprisingly bland. Even as a fan of milds, I got bored with this one.

On-tap into Scandanavian Mug @ Birreria Paradiso.

Light amber color with a one finger tan head that slowly settles to a thin cap. Light hops in the aroma, along with earthy yeast tones. Biscuity malts in the flavor, along with a slight hop bitterness. The yeast did a lot of talking in this one, with mild fruity flavors up front, with a touch of diacetyl. Medium bodied.

A decent bitter, but far from my favorite. The hops weren't quite as assertive as I would have expected, and the yeast is a bit too upfront.

Pours a cloudy orange-ish color with a off white head. Aromas that are hoppy and a sweet maltiness. In the taste there is a small bitter, a sweet maltiness and a nice presence of fruitiness. A light bitter, yet mellow mouthfeel and a dry, sticky bitter aftertaste. A nice session-y bitter, a bit light and water in taste, but easy to drink.

On tap at Rattle 'n Hum.

I didn't know what to expect from this beer; what I got was a little disappointing. I haven't had much of the style, so I hope I'm not bringing my personal taste into the review too much.

The beer poured fairly nice, with a yellow haziness throughout. The head was already gone by the time it was placed in front of me.

Aroma was interesting. I detected a fairly blah hop profile at first whiff.

Flavor was a little bizarre, but perhaps it was just a shock to my palette. The anticipated english bitterness was present, but it was topped off with a whole lot of honey flavor. Carbonation was low, in keeping with the style I suppose, but with the big honey flavor, it was kind of like an experimental soft-drink. Or a cup of tea and honey that had sat overnight on the counter.

Mouthfeel was a little syrupy because of the low carbonation/honey mix. It was interesting, anyway.

Given the above criticisms, drinkability is pretty high. If you like honey flavor, you'll like this. Ultimately, the flavors are mild and inoffensive, and the lack of carbonation and low ABV makes this a pretty easy drinker.
