12 oz nitro tap pour into a pint glass at Hinterland in the Third Ward, Milwaukee.

A - The nitro pour is lacking the classic cascading due to the poor pour/ delivery. Tiny carbonation bubbles cling disgustingly to the whole glass showing how dirty it is. (This is a quality issue for the location so it doesn't affect my grade on the beer's appearance.) A dense creamy head rests on top of a hazy amber beer.

S - This pub beer starts with a mild cold aroma of light English hops and toasted biscuity malts but never amounts to more than a faint hint of aroma.

T - Cold and dusty, flaky biscuit-like toasted malts with a hint of toffee and mild English hops to the finish, Pub Draught is fair but needs some work here.

M - Very smooth and silky with a satisfying refreshing quality and a dry, light hop finish. It's also served far too cold. It needs to be around 55° F, not around 40°F (or below).

D - Good drinkability for what it is, but it needs to be served much warmer for starters. That may allow the aroma and flavor to open up more.

Nitro tap at the Whistling Swan restaurant in Door County, WI. Served into a curved 10 oz glass.

Pours light colored, pale yellow, with thick creamy foam. Very good retention. Pour was served relatively warm - room temperature.

Mild fruit smell, hints of the hops that are buried in the brew.

Taste is hoppy from the get go - bordering on too much versus the underlying beer malt. Smooth and creamy in the mouthfeel.

An interesting brew, but nothing spectacular.

This is an English Pale Ale of the Boddington’s variety. In fact, if brewing a beverage similar to Boddington’s was Hinterland’s goal, and I do believe that it was, then they have hit a home run. Pub Draught mirrors the Bod in every respect save a pleasant absence of the metallic macro adjunct flavor found in the original and a even more welcome presence of more hops. Pub Draught’s appearance is only slightly redder then the Bod. Its head is massive and lasting. The aroma has a strong powdered candy fruity element, biscuits, jam, and British hops. Tastes is light with British malts and fruits. Finish has a light bitterness and borders on dry. Carbonation is not felt, only observed. As smooth, creamy, and drinkable as a beer can get.

on nitro tap at the satellite pub in Milwaukee. pours a rich amber color with a razor thin-edged creamy off white head that takes a minute or two to settle out. wonderful retention and solid lacings. looks great in the glass.

aroma is of smooth, spiced hop notes along with light notes of banana, citrus, and very light pale malts in the background.

taste follows the nose with the same hop notes and subtle banana & citrus hop notes along with a balancing spiced hop character. this all comes together in a very smooth and drinkable profile. not bitter at all in the end. solid!

mouthfeel is light bodied and super smooth with a very well proportioned feel. it has the smooth hop notes without the bitterness.

drinkability is great. for a pale on nitro, this is very well done. solid hop character and very easy drinking. cheers!

I enjoyed this beer as part of the 3 - 6oz tasting flite at the brewery's new Milwuakee location.

Appearance: Dark copper, reddish look with not much head to speak of.

Smell: Sweet and fruity.

Taste: Light taste and just sweet enough.

Mouthfeel: Very creamy and very smooth.

Drinkability: Pretty decent APA. I could definitely be convinced to drink this as a sessin ale.
