Nitro tap at the brew pub.
Comes to the table a clear amber color with a huge frothy creamy white head. smells of caramel and bread with hints of earthy hop. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a silky creamy mouthfeel. Decent enough beer, seems a bit pedestrian, maybe its more of a gateway craft type offering.

Enjoyed at the brewery.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a lightly cloudy amber hue with a creamy one finger off white head that fades to leave a dense blanket.

S - Aromas of sweet malts, light caramel, little bit of toasty bread, some earthy hops.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, loads more toasty notes, caramel, big earthy hops, light bitter finish.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and smooth thanks to the nitro, however, it doesn't have that usual nitro heaviness. Nice bitter finish.

O - Overall this beer was really nice. Finely crafted, definitely not the run of the mill amber.

Serving type: nitro
