3.63/5 rDev +3.7%
Poured from a nitro-can into a Fuller's Pint glass. Fairly clear reddish gold color with several floaties and 2 fingers of dense creamy white head. The nose is nice and malty with aromas of nuts, toffee, and bread.
Light to medium body and a feel that is somewhat creamy due to the nitro. Not bitter at all. There are soft flavors of toffee and caramel that are joined at mid-palate by some tea and lemon spiciness. Very smooth and drinkable.
Overall, a nice mild fairly well-balanced ale. I'd prefer more maltiness and body. Probably won't buy this again as I'm sure there are others out there worth trying that are easy to obtain.

Best by 9/2/13.
Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy light tan head that settles to a dense cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruits, and a some grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and grain flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat but creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that looks great in the glass but is quite mild aroma and flavor wise.

Nitro-can poured into a nonic pint.
A- Always cool, cascading pour from a nitro can. It ends up a clean, golden-copper body with a pillowy tan head of 1-1/2 fingers. Nice, thick rings left on the glass. Great sustain on the head.
S- A little buttery. Combined with carjacker-like hops it becomes something of a buttermilk biscuit with warm butter. Hopping is floral. Light fruitiness. A little more hopping comes through and almost gets an herbal tea scent.
T- Follows aroma. A little buttery. Nice maltiness suggests biscuit-like or crackery qualities. Lighter hopping is floral. Again with the herbal tea reference.
M- Creamy, smooth. Very nitro.
O- A very drinkable beer. When I sit down for a review, I find it quite flavorful. I'd make it my session beer if it weren't still near $10 for the four tall cans. Why can't somebody make a sub-4% beer at a discounted price???

Poured from a nitro-can into a pint glass. Caramel-colored appearance with a foamy, sticky head that remains after the last drop. Light-bodied, watery, but holds onto a distinctly creamy taste. Hints of lemon citrus, malt and a slight grassiness upfront with a clean finish. A little lighter than I prefer, but very smooth and the creaminess of the ale keeps it interesting.
