Served warmer, less carbonation. Slightly more balanced that the regular Pale Ale. Much better with Nitrogen.

Almost like a Boddingtons with a little hop flavor and astringent aftertaste. Nothing special, Nitro pour made it smooth but still is lacking a clean finish. Undercarbonated and poor bittering flavor, Tasted in Berkeley.

Tap. Amber with a thick frothy white head. Hop and a little fruit in the aroma with a noticeable alcohol tinge. Creamy smooth and malty.

Beautiful nitro pour, of course, leaving tight creamy head in wake--below is crystal clear coppper ale--quite beautiful in the glass. Aroma has fruit tones with light hoppiness & subtle malt undertones. The flavor is less assertive but more subtle and smooth than the regular version of their pale ale. Good balance between malts and the light but well-bittered hops. Finish is medium-dry and very smooth. Body is good for a pale and the balance is helped by the nitrogenation. Some will find this brew too "restrained"--and quite apart from the unusual nitro treatment for a pale, is very much in the English style. I like its subtlety and balance.

Well I didnt know that one would use nitrogen in a pale ale. Nice creamy head but the undercarbonated taste doesnt suit well for a Pale Ale.

This has to be Pyramids biggest mistake. The nitro head is a gimmick at best. Add in a general blandness, and youre left with a mediocre beer.

Copper-red as advertised, and thirst quenching like most Pyramid ales, but lacking zing. Nice, easy hopping, and smooth, but highly forgettable.

Sour (& soap?), nitro, very bitter, overextended long back. Disgusting. I left a 4 oz. undrunk.
