Shaker pint nitro draft at The Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, Florida. The pour settles to a clear golden orange with a nitro cream head. The aroma is minimal due to the thick nitro cream head blocking. What aroma is there is cracker malt. The taste is a smooth cracker malt along with a hint of toast and some crystal malt notes. There is grass in the finish. Clean, simple, tasty. The palate is medium bodied, nitro carbonation and lingering malt. Nice.
