The CO2 gives this a bite that makes it work very well.
Draft
Slightly hoppy, very roasty. As dark as a porter; I wouldn't really recognize this as an alt. "Burnt chocolate pretzel porter."
Draft
This was a weirdly off gose - not really salty at all and the funk and bright, straight lime juice fruit don't really combine well.
Draft
Slightly sweet, cereal lager with some vaguely fruity notes - enough so that I could almost imagine a little berry in there since they'd switched this glass with the Rose. I liked this very much.
Draft
Did not love. Quite flat from the cask, some cloudy hop dankness, and ... well, I normally hate raspberries and this did nothing to change my mind. So.
Draft
Interesting, and I think in an intriguing way rather than bad. Starts bright and lager-like before turning suddenly vinous and dry. Like a brut lager, if you can imagine that? But there is definitely a weird seam when the flavor transitions, and that could use some work.
Draft
Smells of sweet coconut, but the actual beer is not sweet at all. If anything, it's a touch smoky, with some roast. Definite coconut which barely balances the roast rather than sweetening it. Decent, but not among my favorite coconut beers. (At least it's not hoppy!)
Draft
Smooth and inoffensive. On the bright side, it didn't have the poky hoppiness that most of the dark beers here have; on the other hand, it wasn't particularly memorable.
Nitro Draft
Fairly bitter, somewhat rooty. Served at typically warmer cask temperature with also-typical flatness; lots of hop oil collecting on top. Yeah, nah, not so much.
Cask
Quite a bit more bitter than I expected. This place makes good beer, but they do like the bitter.
Draft
The orange in this beer is just slightly over the edge into perfumey, though not nearly to the extent that similar beers from Bellevue Brewing go. Otherwise there's a very orange soda quality to the flavor. Finishes like a good kolsch/cream ale, but oy, that opening.
Cask
Smooth, creamy, sweet Porter on nitro. Finishes noticeably hoppy and bitter. Incongruous.
Nitro Draft
High alpha hop bomb. Nice flavors and not too pungent but it hits you in the face and not very pleasantly.
Draft
Chocolate roast Amber with a significant hop presence. Finish goes from Irish red style caramel to quite bitter in a hurry.
Draft
Clean, straight sour. Passion and orange are obvious, guava not so much. Cereal finish, Berliner Weisse-like
Draft
Belgian pepper and clove, mild yeast tang, sweet cereal finish
