Poured from nitro can into pint glass
Appearance – Upon pouring from the can there is a yellowish honey colored body. The nitrogen bubble can be seen streaming up through the beer, giving it a lighter color when it is initially poured. As the bubbles cascade up through the beer it leaves a deeper golden colored brew with a nice thick white foam head left on the surface of the brew.
Smell – There is a heavy caramel aroma mixed with a bready body. There are some hints of honey and some floral notes mixed in as well, which with the caramel give a rather sweeter smell.
Taste – It begins with a strong breadiness. Unlike what is detected in the nose, there is not much sweetness at all. There is a bitterness that develops on the tongue throughout the taste experience. Toward the end there is a floral and grassy flavor that mixes with the breadiness, leaving a somewhat astringent and herbal flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – Creamy due to the nitrogen nature, but the effervescence is low. It would actually do much better from a higher level of carbonation as it wouldn’t accentuate the rather unpleasant flavors left on the tongue like the creamy nitrogen body does.
Overall – Really the only thing this brew has is a decent smell and look. The breadiness was nice, but the herbal and astringent flavors really took away from it and as for its mouthfeel, a non-nitrogen driven nature may have suited the flavors better.
Serving type: nitro-can
