3.18/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Package: 1 pint “nitro-widget” can. No decipherable date information, but can is stamped on the bottom with some sort of batch/date code.

Cost: $5.99 a 4-pack at Bottle King ($1 more than all the other pub draught 4-packs)

Presentation: Imperial Pint glass at 50º

Appearance: Beautiful “widget-can” pour. Super-tight, voluminous, bone-white head with furious cascading under it for at least a minute. Body resolved to a crystal-clear red-gold color with a firm 1½” replenishing cushion. Filled the pint glass to perfection like it was auditioning for a commercial (or like Lana Turner filled a sweater), this is what a beer should look like when poured.

Smell: Almost non-existent aroma, with perhaps a whiff of doughy bread and malt sweetness.

Taste: Very pleasant taste upfront, helped by the creamy nitro-boosted texture and soft, sweet graininess. The hops seem an afterthought, but are faintly present. This is a true cream ale, with little pretense of palate-busting hoppiness or complexity. All of the flavor is at the beginning, with little body to carry it through the middle to the watery finish.

Mouthfeel:. Very luxurious and mouthfilling at first-quaff, but flavors are very evanescent, fading quickly. Body becomes a bit watery and thin however. After furious cascading effect, carbonation settles down to a fine, subtle sparkling sensation, reminiscent of an English casked ale.

Drinkability: This beer is eminently poundable, and worth recommending to a neophyte looking to step up to something better than the typical macro. Slightly higher ABV than some Irish cream ales is not apparent.

Pretty representative of what a cream ale should be. By no means something worth killing yourself to find, this is an unchallenging beer that might be perfect for that hot summer day or that inveterate macro-drinking friend. An imported Genny Cream!

Bottom Line: Might not be worth a premium, unless your enamored with the “widget can,” but an easy-drinking, beautiful-looking beer.

Serving type: nitro-can

It came in a nice can. I like the cans appearance. It's golden in color with very little head. I might have kept it in the freezer too long. Had a little ice. Roughy an hour and a half. It had very little smell. Taste is decent. Expected more from a creme ale. Not bad though. I would drink this beer again.
