A mildly limp amber-orange, with a dallop of thick creamy nitro head. Never seen a beer quite like this, though it does make my mouth water a bit. Smell is of pale malts, English-style and some crisp, apple-like hoppiness. Nice aromas, as well. Moderate and not aggressive in the least, but still very appetizing. Taste features that same crip fruitiness, followed by a caramely creamy middle and a nice, easy sweetness. Finish is nicely hopped and almost-bitter, but balanced with no flavor overpowering others. Mouthfeel is dead on creamy and delctable, just like you'd expect a nitro beer to be but not heavy, still lighter in character. Almost brainlessly sessionable.
A nice, easy drinking ESB with a nitro twist that gives it the feel of a Guinness. Never had a nitro beer that wasn't a dark stout ale or porter, so this was a new experience for me. I liked it, and would have again.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
