A: pours a nice pale yellow with a very nice dense white head and an unbelievable amount of lacing as it goes down. Something very pretty to look at. S: not too much going on. Some lightly-toasted bread notes alongside some grassy, floral hops. T: much of the same. Slightly grainy with some crisp European hops. M: nice and creamy; goes down very smooth. D: the epitome of a session beer. Light, delicate flavors with really low alcohol. Good offering, and leaves me with only two more styles to try, which is a bit sad as every new style really presents something different, which is always nice.

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.

Nitro at Craft Ale House. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a creamy white head. Aroma of bready malt, grassy notes, lemon and other citrus notes. Flavor of Cheerios, lemon and fresh bread.

Draft at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a thick creamy head. Light cereal aroma. Flavor is much of the same. It is a bit watery but this packs a surprising amount of flavor. Cereal and bread flavors with light hops. Really nice to drink after a long day outside.

transparent hold, large spotted soft white head, a consistent layer. Grain, soap, and light buttery pale rule nitro-muted nose. Soft body, low carbonation, pale grain flavor with light grass hop bitterness particularly in the finish.

Blairgus (2731) - California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
18 July 2011, tap at the brewery. pale yellow, clear, no bubbles but bubbles on the sides of the glass. bitter dry grass aroma, but soft. thin body and almost no carbonation. sweet, almost passion fruit candy flavor. nice, light with nice soft hop flavor. a bit too watery for me but nice nonetheless.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2010
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.

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2010
On tap, at brewery. Pours a pale yellow gold with a small nitro white head. Almost no aroma at all, maybe a touch of pale maltiness. Pretty nice flavor, neutral as well, light and easy drinking with a touch of ale fruitiness. Finishes very clean. Light bodied and seems even thinner because of the nitro treatment. Kinda meh on this one, not sure why the nitro.

nike (967) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2011
On tap at brewery. To date, probably the weakest beer from this brewery, but still, not all that bad. Pale golden yellow looking beer, little head, little in smell (really couldn’t detect anything). Light bodied, I was told this is nitro carbonated. Low abv, small citrus hop flavored. Of all the great beers this brewery makes, I wouldn’t try this again. But, on style, clean, fresh, crisp taste.

On draft at the brewpub on the night of the deer incident. Pours a clear liquid yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma of corn, malt and light herbal notes. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Barley detected.
