Growler shared by Duffmansw. Poured a golden orange color with thin white head. Aroma was salty, with some pungent dried fruit. Taste was very creamy, malty, and somewhat tart. On the lower side (carbonation) yet thick body and creamy. Overall just ok.

Yellowish brown body. Aroma of pistachio nuts and caramel. Flavor is sweeter than its largely nutty aroma. More like pistachio pudding and less like the nut itself. Nice

A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Festival): Very nutty aroma - as you’d expect. Sweet and a bit savoury too! Flavour is so pistachio that it’s slightly unpleasant. Bit bizarre and not particularly enjoyable but interesting to try.

Old rating from notes. Tap. Poured poured a hazy yellowish brown with a tan head that had a slight yellow hue. Aroma was sweet with notes of nuts, bread and cereal. Flavor was similar with a creamy nut flavor that definitely had notes of pistachio and sweet cereal notes.

Tap at Sheffield... Pours a hazy apple cider brown with a thin soapy white head... Thin nutty aroma with light caramel malt... Flavors are on the lighter side with a somewhat nutty fruity side. Creamy mouthfeel which was expecting with light carb.
