2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nitro bottle at Ventnor. This was my first Left Hand Nitro. It poured exactly how a nitro should and does pour. Aroma was malty. I see above that it is supposed to warm a bit, but it was served out of the beer cooler. Flavor and aroma certainly were muted. Enjoyable, just not remarkable. Slightly malty, slightly bitter, with a bit more malt than hop. Probably should try it again.

Medium bready aroma, slight sweetness on the nose. Pours amber with a soft white head. Soft round mouthfeel, grainy flavour, low bitterness with a slight hop bite in the aftertaste. Aftertaste builds over time, fairly average.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro bottle. Pours amber with a thick off-white head coalescing on top. Nose is somewhat muted by the head, but has herbs and spicy, caramelly malts reminiscent of good English ESB. Flavor is an excellent rendition of an ESB - perhaps the best I’ve had in an American bottled beer, as a result of the way that the nitro texture enhances the flavor - this is like drinking a wonderful dream that reminds me of some of the best pints I had in England. Flavor is bitter upfront with an herbal bitterness that pleasantly stays on the tongue throughout, more spice and just a bit of sweetness in the middle, finish has a dry mild bitterness that makes one want to sip more. Great stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear amber body with a thick off-white head. Low carbonation. Sticky lacing marks. Aroma of caramel, rusty metal, biscuit and light fig. Flavour of honey Cheerios, sponge cake, Digestives and overripe pear. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Not great - a bit flabby and dull.
