Poured from nitro-can into an imperial pint glass. Comes out a thick, rich foam that takes a good 10 seconds to start breaking down. As the foam settles you see a beautiful cascade of foam as it breaks down into beer. The beer itself is a beautiful clear brownish orange color, and the foam a slight yellow in color. Superb head retention on this ale. Even toward the end of the glass there is a good half-finger of creamy foam atop the beer.
The smell is very bready and sweet with a touch of lemony tartness behind it. Not much else to note.
The taste is definitely bready, almost with a bit of rye. Any hops in here are solely for bittering, as there is nothing up front but a nice mild bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy for such a clear-looking beer. It’s nice and thick-feeling.
Drinkability is high. It goes down easy and has a wonderful bitter aftertaste. Very thirst-quenching, in my opinion.
Overall I’m quite happy with this one. I’d walked past these cans for months and finally decided to try it. I wasn’t disappointed.
