Served on-nitro-tap at Pony Bar (Hells Kitchen) in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear deep medium golden yellow in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some darker golden yellow + copper highlights. The beer has a two finger tall creamy light beige head that very slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of pale and bready malts with a light amount of citrus/orange rind hops.

T: Light to moderate flavors of toasted pale malts that have an almost buttery aspect to them with some light notes of citrus/orange rind hops and just a hint of lingering bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Super creamy.

O: Unfortunately this beer did not really benefit from being served on nitro - it came out a little too creamy almost like a cream ale. I think this beer would be best served on cask with light amounts of carbonation. Very easy to drink.

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.
