look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from nitro-tap into Boddington's Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Honey gold with firm, stark white head. Has the too perfect look of a nitro beer, but it sure is pretty.

Smell: Not too much, but to be expected for the style. Light grainy malts, some light spiciness. Mostly smells dry.

Taste: Dried malts with toast, bread and tea. Hops are nicely balanced and integrated and are spicy, floral and slightly metallic.

Feel:Light bodied but exceedingly smooth and creamy. Very dry finish, as expected since the beer is pretty dry throughout.

Overall: I know many like to blast this beer for being bland, but I find it to be very refreshing and balanced, despite being quite mild. From what I remember, the nitro cans are also good, but not as good as having it on nitro-tap. Happy to finally review this, as I used to have it often in my pre-review days.

Had on tap, poured into a shaker glass. Decent, creamy, off-white head with OK lacing. Slight floral, citrus aroma, mostly malty though. Creamy texture with a malty taste. Some hops were present, but I didn't think that they balanced the sweetness the way I like it. I had heard a lot about the beer and it wasn't bad, just not sure that it measured up to the hype...maybe it's me?...
