look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: Light golden color, with big foamy head at the top that barely leaves any lacing, this looks like guiness basically.
S: Not to much of a nose on this brew, some malts and some sweetness, nothing crazy.
T: Same as the nose, bit of maltyness, some sweetness, and slight hint of hops, no to much going on here.
M: Medium bodied, smooth, and creamy.
O: Nothing crazy, a simple pale ale.
Serving type: on-tap

Let me begin by saying I am not a super fan of British ales, with the exception of bitters. Take that in mind when reading this review. This is one of the sexiest pours I have ever seen from a lighter brew. Even with an experienced pour, the head will consume nearly 3/4 of the glass and quickly "roll up" the glass into a uber creamy 2 finger head. This creamy head sticks around. The nose is slight, but includes bananas and some malt. The taste is a disappointment from such an attractive pour. It's a little watery, with notes of bananas and very mild floral hops. I enjoy the creamy mouth feel and the brew isn't bad, it's actually very drinkable, but it's lacking in complexity and I wish it were more robust. All that said, I honestly have a similar view when drinking most standard British pub ales, at least this one pours sexy and has a cool mouth feel.

Taste - Pretty bitter. Has a subtle sweetness, along with a floral and bready aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Light body with low carbonation.

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.
