I dilligently followed the instructions on the back, letting it chill for at lease 3 hours. I pour a 440ml draught can into my sam smith pint glass
A - well, with all draught/nitro cans it is another perfect pour with a perfect one finger creamy cream colored head. retention is excelent. the body is a dark scotch color, like a cask strength whiskey.
S - an elegant malty sweetness, with some grainy element. there is a bit of mustiness that I do not know whether it is yeast or if I am confusing it with a metallic scent, which would be the height of stupidity.
T - initially there is a slight bitterness on the tongue, not too terribly complicated. the finish has some sweetness from the malts and a pinch of alcohol with continued bitterness. after taste is a sharp downward gradient of loosing flavour,it starts out as malts and then goes into obscurity, very quickly. only leaving a lingering sweetness.
MF&D - I could have used some more carbonation and viscosity to make this beer a bit beefier. but hey, I could also chug this untill ill. a very refreshing and easy to drink grew. finally, a nitro with some freakin body to it!
Serving type: nitro-can
