2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Translucent copper with a dense beige head.
Aroma: bread dough and metallic minerality.
Taste: bready pale malt, woodsy late-hops, and sour minerality.
I would like more maltiness and less minerality.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a tight finger of head on a fairly clear copper colored body. Looks great with the bubbles coming up right after the pour.
The aroma is a caramel barnyard smell.
The taste is okay. Smooth with mild bitterness and a touch of caramel.
The texture is soft with low carbonation.
Between the low ABV, smooth taste and low carbonation this beer is too easy to drink.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nitro can. Very mild, easy drinking ale. Not bitter or hoppy, a little sweetness in the finish. Somewhat bland and not memorable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fairly sweet aroma, bread, caramel, flowers. The flavor follows exactly, a little more subdued. The appearance: the beer erupted into the glass, billowing white head, swirling clouds, settling into a red/copper color, white head. Obviously a nitro widget at work. Light in body, a bit watery. (again, obviously a nitro widget at work). The finish is slightly bitter, tea leaves, obscure hops, again watery. Interesting. I picked this up to increase my experience with this style. But on its own merits, I didn’t love it.
