3.7/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aromas of subtle lemony zest, slight citrusy hops, hay and a bit of bread.

As for appearance; what a show this beer puts on as it pours! When it first comes out of the tap it looks like a glass of milk. As the foam curtain rises it unveils a sparkling, golden/copper brew.

Taste is a subtle balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Slight honey character. Lemon, hay, bread.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Nonic pint.

Pale, hazy yellow that clears up as the beer settles, with a thick foamy white head.

Grainy, lightly sweet, biscuity malt with a lightly grassy hop backing in both aroma and taste.

Medium+ creamy body, foamy carbonation.

A well done, easy drinking cream ale, the initially hazy appearance and creamy body makes me think perhaps it was on nitro tap?

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had on draft at TapHouse Seattle. Great nitro pour. Perfect head, crystal clear straw color. Flavor profile is a nice sweet and smooth ale. Nice slight hop character on backed to clean up the finish on the palate. Only bad comment was a predominant husk of the grain flavor, on the front palate.

Serving type: nitro-tap
