3.58/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
LOOK: Heady start, dark amber brown
SMELL: Toasted grain, diacetyl funk, burnt sugar, dried dates.
TASTE: Crisp, wet, loose body, toasted grain, modest hops, vague fruit, biscuity, faintly buttery, toffee, dry finish.
Not half bad, more than enough flavor to go around even though the malt character seems a bit light. The brewer keeps it interesting enough to keep on drinking.
Serving type: bottle

3.4/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: On tap at Cambridge Commons (Cambridge, MA). Served in a "Humble Patience" English-style pint glass.
Appearance: Deep ruby red to brown with a 2-finger thick off-white nirto-creamy head that sticks to the glass.
Smell: Fairly clean nose with hop and fruit aromas. I swear I can pick up very faint anise & liquorice smells too.
Taste: First taste is that of any other nitro'd English/Irish-style ale (Caffery's comes to mind). Silky smooth mouthfeel with a light even sweetness, followed by lightly toasted malts, watery grape, earth, wood and more fruity characters. Roasted malt flavours fall in the corners of the palate. Bitterness is somewhat citrusy, but not overwhelming, smooth and well-rounded. It's also quite raw in texture (bitty) and consumes the palate in its uniqueness -- leafy coating throughout the mouth with a gentle astringency (if such a thing).
Notes: A very smooth and easy drinking ale. It's obvious that Magic Hat is going after the nitro UK import market, and this is a hell of a contender. The "Never Premature" slogan on the pint glass notes its slow pouring nitro birth.
Serving type: nitro-tap
