Had at Fred's Alehouse, served from a nitro faucet. Needless to say, big head with cool looking bubbles cascading in my glass. A couple of sips were somewhat disappointing. I'm not really sure what I expected of this but it came across as being rather bland. Not offensive but BORING??!!

Nitro tap. Cloudy gold with thick white head. Smells of hay. Tastes of cream and faint grass with a mildly sweet faint hop spice finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and thin without being watery.

Tastes like flat cream soda with artificial flavors added. Voted worst beer of the night by five tasters. Take it back, please.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub, nitro
Hazy blond color with creamy head. Very light lemony aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, but the flavor is severely reduced by the nitro, not much to say about it; low bitterness; the nitro also gives a metallic aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not very good. Pours an ugly light yellow, but with a super creamy white head. Does not smell or taste like too much though. Weird aftertaste. Had on tap it East Side Club Tavern in Olympia.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On nitro. Had from a frosty glass. Very bright in colour with a very think head. Almost tastes like a thick lager. Excellent for summer. Would have preferred a little more sweetness or hops to add some more body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught in a flight. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is much like a standard lager, as is the taste - nothing special in that regard. But as the name implies, it is extremely smooth and creamy. Very easy drink, especially in the summer.

I really like this beer on Nitro tap. This was my go-to chaser at Mickey Finn’s Wednesday pint night. Delightful surging wonder. I had the Hales Cream Stout at Apex and found it very satisfactory. Think globally, drink locally, include Puget Sound and Northern Cali...
