3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20100306 nitro tap at brewpub. Pale golden color with small, fleeting white head. Didn’t look particularly nitro. Aroma is simple, biscuity, shortbread. Body is very, very light, near flat, but with a pleasing acidic tang towards the end. Some mild diacetyl notes are more distracting than unpleasant and I suppose I expected some buttery presence so... it’s passable. Cleans up with a quenching acidity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro pour at Victory. Pours a cloudy nitro body- clears up as it settles to a mostly clear very light pale golden with a decent lasting white creamy head. Aroma is light biscuity, musty, toasty malts, light lemon and earthy grassy hops. Flavor is light citrus, lemongrass, earthtones, light dirt, bready light malts, mild sweetness and a mineral very lightly bitter finish. Golden ale on nitro- strange, but not too bad- very light overall though.
