Nitro tap at Pratt Street Ale House. I’d have to agree with the other reviews so far of the wrong class. Pretty sure it was listed at the Ale House as a Golden Ale. Onto the review... Appearance: This a quite a little beauty golden ale with a creamy white head. Light caramel malt and english hops make for balanced aroma. It also smelled a little yeasty The flavor was a great balance of English hops with a bit of creamy caramel malt that mixes in well. Pretty fantastic example of the style. Exceptionally creamy and smooth all the way through the finish.

Cask at Churchkey. Golden color, 3 bubble head, not much lacing. Aroma of malt and black pepper. Taste resembles a best bitter more than a blonde, perfect for a cask ale. Dry bitter finish. Very nice.

A very nice ale. It’s got a nice balance of malty sweet and some bitter hops while keeping a very smooth mouth feel. It was very easy drinking, and while it was hoppy for a golden ale, it was very smooth.

Cask at Paradiso Dupont. Whoa- this is very good. Poured a clear amber with a dense, buttermilk, nitro head that you could lay a penny on top of. Excellent cask, nitro, poofy, sheety lace. Aroma is full of cinnamon toast, slight lemon, floral hops, nutmeg, caramel. Taste is English cask bitter with light Fuggles and EKG hops balancing a session amber body full of caramel, cinnamon, brown sugar, citrus peels, doughy malt. Voided of residual sweetness. Dry finish. Soft, beautiful carbonation. Excellent session beer.

Nitro pour at RFD. Comes a lightly hazy, copper orange amber with a very creamy, lacing white head. Aroma is malty, lightly fruity, lightly spicy. Flavor is all malt, grains, a little bread, some light citrus, a little pepper. Medium bodied, sweet finish. Nice and sessionable.

On nitro. Dark golden with thick creamy white head. Lightly fruity flavor, slightly oldish tang to it, dry dusty hop finish. Easy to drink but could use more hop aroma and bite.

20110305 nitro pint at PSA. Good looking nitro head, light gazed golden. Earthy, woodsy aroma. Easy quaff with a soft palate but brisk bitterness to finish. Refreshing.
