look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Served from nitro can into a pint mug.
A - Nice amber copper color
S - Very faint smell slightly fruity, dominated by piny hops aroma.
T - dry, with a moderately strong hop finish. Not surprisingly the word bitter comes to mind.
M - light mouthfeel. Light carbonation.
O - The taste is lighter than the color. Its OK but not a standout. I'm trying different styles to decide what to brew for the summer and this is the first bitter I've tasted. Easy to drink, but not my favorite style.

Pours a clear amber with a fluffy white smooth nitro head. The smell is slightly sweet with some fruit and very mild toffee. The flavor is malty and quite fruity. Just a touch of bitterness, especially in the finish. The bosy could be a bit thocker. Nothing super special.

Nitro can picked up tonight at the COOP... poured into a big ole English Pint glass.. beautiful long lasting off white head atop a polished golden brew.

Aromas are mild English pale malts and some lesser earthy hops.. a little yeasty fruitiness.

Very balanced flavor... low bitterness/definitely balanced toward the pale malts and some background caramel.... middle of the road yeasty fruitiness but more than the nose.. grassy hoppiness is there, but just enough to balance.

Body is light with the expected creaminess ... I don't like nitro beers too much, and I don't personally believe the nitrogen does anything to help the flavor or aromas.

On-tap, Jake's Cigars and Spirits, Lincoln, NE:

Appearance: Milky pour, very thick head of foam. Solid golden, classic appearance. Big fan of the appearance. 5/5

Smell is light, hoppy, sweet. What Budweiser should be. 4/5

Taste: Slightly bitter and hoppy. A little watery at first for my tastes. Lacks complexity. But not bad. 3/5

Sits well in mouth. 4/5
