A: Being a nitro pour, had to give it high ratings for appearance. Pours a clear light copper body with the usual creamy, thick off-white head.
S: A good mix of maltiness (not really sweet) and Cascade hops.
T: A bit more watery and less flavorful than was hoping for, but not bad. The maltiness takes up most of the flavor, but there is a short citrus finish.
M: A bit thin. Again, being a nitro pour, a little bit low on carbonation; may have preferred more for the style.
D: Not too bad. Could probably have a couple. Not sure what the abv was. Supposedly this is just the nitrogenated version of the MacTarnahans Pale Ale; not sure why they gave it its own name. Think I'd prefer trying the other, though, next time.
