Nitro-tap at The Norseman, Dublin, Ireland

A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high creamy off white head that died down but has excellent retention properties, consistently leaving a half finger high head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the smell.
T: Like the nose, the taste has light flavors of pale malts. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and is very creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The nitro-tap makes this beer have an incredible mouthfeel that is both creamy and smooth.
