Golden color with a thick head. The nitro loses much of the aroma and flavor of their normal pale-ale.

Did not like the nitrogen pour on this beer. It seemed to take away everythin else about the beer. I give them kudos for trying something different, just not for me. Mouth-feel is very full but not like a real cask ale. Too lively.

Medium gold color. Large foamy head. Aroma is nearly absent, but it’s a touch malty. A light bodied Pale ale. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are mild, grapefruity and floral. The nitro conditioning really masks any flavor this beer has. Sort of well balanced, I guess. Not a very good effort. The finish is very smooth, but that about all one can say about this beer. Mouth feel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Tap. Nice big creamy head but faded quicly. Body is amber. Quite hoppy but I found the finish to be metallic.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2003
Extremely creamy head that stays thoughout the entire beer. The smell of hops is lifted slightly to the nose. Very light in body. Not much of a backing to the hop aroma when you taste it. As the beer warms slightly the malts start to come through with a hint of hops in the finish. Where is the rest of this beer.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2003
The added cascade effect from the nitrogen is probably the biggest change this version of the Pyramid pale contains. There is a slightly unpleasant sour aroma that is quickly forgotten once you tackle the surprisingly full malt this beer posesses, but as quick as this hits the palate is hit hard by an onslaught of brassy metallic nastiness that unfortunately gives the beer it's most defining characteristic. Like licking a brass railing coated in honey and a touch of bittering hops.

The nitro seems to add to an already bland product

Served warmer, less carbonation. Slightly more balanced that the regular Pale Ale. Much better with Nitrogen.

Almost like a Boddingtons with a little hop flavor and astringent aftertaste. Nothing special, Nitro pour made it smooth but still is lacking a clean finish. Undercarbonated and poor bittering flavor, Tasted in Berkeley.
