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.

Draft at the Safeco Field brewpub. Pours light coppery amber with densely moussy but very thin off-white head. Plenty of lace. Sour sweaty nose, some CO2 and yeast there. Watery, lightly fizzy attack. Bitter toast and light aluminum notes. Fairly clean finish.

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)

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
