Tap at the Berkeley venue. Pours amber with an off-white head. Mild citrus aroma. Med body or nearly. Flavor is mild roasty malt, fruit, citrus. There’s hop, but not all that much. Finishes barely sufficiently bitter.

This has to be Pyramid's biggest mistake. The nitro head is a gimmick at best. Add in a general blandness, and you're left with a mediocre beer.
