Presented from the hand pump with a finger of bone-white head with great retention, given my (slow) rate of consumption. The color was a rich, gold, such as Croesus might have had between his fingers. The clarity was phenomenal - well beyond NE-quality, allowing me to peer across the room and nearly through the wall, x-ray spex style. The nose was of freshly-squeezed Florida grapefruit on a huge scale. The mouthfeel was silky smooth, running down my gullet slick as a whistle. The hops were more muted than the in-your-face, mofo! taste that I have experienced in its CO2 draft version. I really liked the citrusy play on my tongue. It tickled! No, really, it scrubbed my palate clean and opened my heretofore stuffy sinuses. The finish was muted, compared to the CO2 version, but it had a pleasant citrusy aftertaste. Yum!
