4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On nitro at Stub & Herb's - thick white head that won't go away. Nose is floral hops. Mouthfeel is fantastic, soft and creamy. This is what I imagine an English pub ale should be. A nice balance of malt and bitterness.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from the tap at the Milwaukee brewpub. Pours a hazy orangish gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces thickly. Aroma has a light perfume note with a bit of flora and some earthy sweet grains. Flavor was a bit thin with light fruit, sweet grains and a bit of earthy grass.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Craft in Middleton, WI - Pours hazy brown with a big fluffy off-white head. Nose is herbal, lightly grassy hops over a lightly toasted malt base. Taste is roughly the same--very smooth malt, lightly toasted and bready, with a herbal, grassy, lightly spicy hop profile. Bites a little bit on the finish. Full and very creamy--mouthfeel is excellent in this one. Wasn’t expecting much, but this was pretty impressive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Super pale razor-clear amber pour with a perfect creamy nitro head. Aroma is very light pale malt, a hint of caramel balanced by a mild dry hop resin/wood nose (Fuggles or Goldings?). Taste is biscuit, grain tannin, woody hop resin, caramel. Body is medium, super creamy from nitro, mild bitter dry hoppy finish. Overall, extremely drinkable, best by far I’ve had yet form Hinterland.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tapper was mid-gold color with nice foamy lace. Aroma was slightly sweet with a malty backbone. Taste was of malt, some corn/grains, pear hints and a moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, pretty decent, but I was anticipating something smoother and less hoppy for a cream ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold orange, creamy white foam. Aroma is fruity sweet malt. Taste is a big dulled by the nitro, but a nice solid fruitiness, apples, sweet malts. Interesting to have a cream ale on nitro.

Enjoyed during a closed door tasting session in Green Bay with the brewer, Joe Karls. Poured a clear, gold/amber with an off white, silky, nitro head and a thick, lasting, curtain of lacing. The aroma was slightly bready malt and light fruit sweetness. The flavor added to these a nice subtle hop bitterness, with a pleasant, creamy mouthfeel throughout. Very drinkable and refreshing.
