look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Nitro-can poured into 16 oz English pub glass

appearance - 5/5 - Pours with a cascade of bubbles but doesn't overflow. The bubbles settle over the next minute to a stark while creamy head. The color is golden transparent pale.

smell - 4.5/5 - Light hop aroma on top of bready or tea. Maybe slightly grassy.

taste - 3.5/5 - Clean light hop flavor. Mild bitter aftertaste with a lingering earthiness.

mouthfeel - 4.5/5 - A wonderfully smooth and creamy texture fills the mouth and leaves the idea of creaminess behind long after the beer is gone.

overall - 4/5 - Not my favorite tasting beer, but I respect it in it's style, and what it lacks in taste is well made up for with all other categories.

Pours a bright and clear gold color with a creamy thick nitro head. Certainly looks inviting.

Aromas are faint, bready, creamy, and light tea leaves.

Taste is creamy, sweet, and bready. Some tea notes, and mineral like bitterness on the finish. Pretty simple tasting, but has an odd adjuct like sweetness that detracts a bit.

Mouthfeel is smooth but thin.

Overall, a simple drinkable beer. Not very memorable or something I'd look forward to drinking again.
