Tap at the Berkeley venue. Pours amber with an off-white head. Mild citrus aroma. Med body or nearly. Flavor is mild roasty malt, fruit, citrus. There’s hop, but not all that much. Finishes barely sufficiently bitter.

This has to be Pyramid’s biggest mistake. The nitro head is a gimmick at best. Add in a general blandness, and you’re left with a mediocre beer.

On tap at the Portland Brewing taphouse. On nitro. Pours a clear copper color with a large nitro head. A floral and grainy nose. The flavor is super sweet, buttery, a bit of toasted malts, oranges, sweet butterscotch. Not very good. Drinkable.

1/2 pint on nitro at Barclay’s in Oakland. Solid cream top over an amber-colored, clear brew. Nutty buddy! Milky caramel. Doesn’t lend itself well to the nitro delivery, IMHO. (#3416, 4/12/2008)
