3.09/5  rDev -22.8%

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.

Pours a clear amber or light amber. Head settling in nicely. Looks like an English pale on nitro.

Toasted grain, floral and citrus hops, English maltiness. Light grassiness.

Nice sweet bitter. Orange hops, floral hops, barley malt, English-style caramelization, peach creaminess, browned apple, and must. Quite nice.

Drinks like a champ. Wonderful creamy feel. Wet-bodied. Softly carbonated.

A standout specialty beer. Perfect for the spring.

On cask at Churchkey. Served in a pint glass. Pours a nice caramel-copper with a good, lasting white head. Nice sticky lacing. The nose carries some bready, slightly-toasty malt along with just a touch of nuttiness. Good earthy, floral hops in the background then coming through into the flavor. Nice malty base for that, though still fairly thin (without being watery). Light body with appropriate cask carbonation and a smooth bitterness. Well done bitter.

Pours a hazy dull amber with decent sustainable whitish head. Nose has a distinct white vinegar note, which is very surprisingly, pleasant and interesting. Flavor is apple cider, mild english green hops, and a very dry finish. There is an acidic astringency that bites the throat as it goes down, but again, not offensive. Lightly sour after the soft very lowly carbonated body. Bitter hop oil lingering finish.

16 ounce pint - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Clear, medium copper-hued body pulled from the cask with a slim, scraggly, ivory head. A few dots of lace on the way down.

Smell: Faint, tenuous notes of crisp grains, toffee, and dried peppery herbs.

Taste: Light toffee maltiness, subtly sweet. Light toasted grains with a touch of nuttiness. Faint golden raisin fruitiness. Mild herb and spice from the hops. Faintly bitter. Lightly malty finish with some of that herbal edge lingering in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Low carbonation.

Overall: Pleasant, nicely balanced, easy-drinking session cask beer for lunchtime.
