A - Clear, deep honey color with a typical nitro head.
S - As with most nitro brews, the smell is quite muted. I pick up a gentle breadiness and a bit of fruity sweetness, but not much else.
T - Mild yeasty flavor that has a touch of sweetness similar to...apple juice? Nice floral hops presence but no real bitterness to speak of.
M - Watery mouthfeel but with the creaminess of the nitro effect. But still crisp enough & the finish is very clean.
D - This is truly a session beer that I could drink all night. I enjoy the occasional nitro brew, and this is a good one. Obviously it's not a good choice if you're looking for bold flavor. But if you want a mild, clean tasting ale, give Tetley's a try.

This beer is a medium yellow with a little haze to it from the nitro can, which builds up a white head that's creamy, though not the beautiful creaminess and strength provided some by the nitro. Lace is moderate in its body and filmy and, above all, consistent.
It doesn't smell too light to me. It's very biscuit in the malt backbone with sweetness like fruits, including banana, and caramel. It's also slightly earthy, with a little mineral element to it, and with just enough diacetyl to fit guidelines, it seems.
The flavor is a little toastier and leafier with the same earthy backbone and a sweetness that offers the same notes but in less force. It goes a little grainy, and slowly develops a little astringency in the back. The leafy hops seem to end up going somewhat vegetal and offer a slight sourness by the end.
The nitro offers lots of creaminess and a nice flow in the light body with its gentle crispness. What I notice in this beer, though, is that it falls off at the end of every sip and thins out. Still, it doesn't fall too far, and keeps up a pretty good smoothness.
