klikger gave me this and i just haven't gotten around to drinking it. i may have inadvertently aged it for about a year....haha.

a - ok, i know this isn't the best beer in the world, but damn thats a nice pour. i love nitro. pour looks as if i'm pouring cream. seperates in the glass leaving a nice clean golden beer topped with a thick blanket of head. great lacing.

s - sweet malts and pilsner. somewhat narrow, but still not bad.

t - taste is very weak. watered down malty flavor with a slight bitterness for hops. has that odd sweetness i find in a lot of UK beers and some scotch ales.

m - from the looks of the beer, you'd think it would be kind of thick, but its not. very thin palate.

overall - the best thing about this beer is the nitro. aside from that its crap.

Clear light gold (after the cascading nitro effect wears off) with a nice lasting creamy nitro head, light carbonation, and decent lace. Light sweet light malt aroma and flavor. Definitely leans malty for a "bitter" ... little to no hops noticeable. Medium bodied and smooth from the nitro ...

An easy drinking simple ale; unfortunately with little character though.
