Default What Beers To Push Through Stout Faucet

I am wondering what other styles of beers besides stouts do well on a stout faucet? I want to try something lighter than a stout so the wife can enjoy the creaminess that comes from the stout faucet (no crude comments required) . Thank you.

I have had a Scottish ale and an IIPA on nitro loved them both.

Thank you Zamial. I was actually thining a Scottish Ale would be one. I was reading that you want hardier beers that will not loose flavor on the stout faucet. This would make sense with both of your recommendations.

I was in Founders tap room a week or so ago and they were serving their pale ale on nitro. I was very skeptical, but it was actually quite tasty. Try a variety and see what you like, you may be surprised.

Thanks brewmadness. I may just do that. I did put a three gallon keg of pale on it when I first got it. You are correct. It was pretty good. Plus it takes only five seconds to pull the keg off the stout and put it back on straight CO2.

I'd think any malty beer would taste pretty good on nitro. I've seen a brown ale on nitro before. I think a dopplebock on nitro would be pretty tasty.

I made a pumpkin/lactose beer that is amazing thru the stout faucet. Like a pumpkin milk shake. I was thinking about trying a cider on nitro as well.

I'm so pleased with how my dark beers taste on nitro I just ordered another faucet and will have a dedicated mini stout faucet keggerator.

I have an all Brett hop bursted IPA that is a little on the thin side, was thinking about trying that too.

I agree that maltier beers are better. Some things I've tried:
scotch ale - awesome
irish red - awesome
pumpkin porter - nice
esb - ok
belgian blonde - not so good
root beer - awesome
