Light roasted malt, not a lot of hop presence. The scent is understated and mild but there, maybe poured a bit cold so may increase.
Light creamy presence on the palette. Mid range of carbonation, this had the nitro widget inside also which likely adds to some of the mouthfeel.
Light copperish in color, with nitro it results in a nice rather creamy stark white head which is lacing nicely.
Light bready malt flavor, bit of nutty flavor much lighter than a nut brown. Some residual bitterness but minimal, goldings possibly?
Rather, I would love to see how many I could go through. 3.6% abv, it is meant to be a sessionable beer and it definitely is.
There's something that really does it for me with this beer. I like the nuance of the aroma and bitterness along with very high drinkability. Might be a bit dull for some, but one of my favorites.

3.45/5 rDev -1.4%

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.
