look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Draught can poured into a pint glass

A: A soft gold color with a bit of a foggy look to it. An off white Foamy head, with almost a honey like look.

S: The smell is a little sweet with an almost floral scent.

T: Creamy, without that bitter beer after taste at first. The beer is best flavored chilled but not cold. The beer actually loses its lack of after taste as the glass is finished the last few sips come with a sort of disgusting mouthful of grains and hops. This is probably one of the only things about the beer i didn't enjoy.

M: Again, creamy not bad but not excellent either. The creaminess was quite unique and good however it does start to become old after a while.

O: Over all I thought this was a very good beer, i prefer a unique feel and taste in my beer, however after drinking the four pack of draught cans i had no strong desire to drink anymore as the creamy flavor really became over whelming. The beer is not great, not terrible, just good. I will be drinking this again.

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.
