From the "well-chilled" nitro can. L3118-00:49. Sampled on March 22, 2014.

It pours a foamy "nitro-can" influenced caramel amber with a big head that slowly settles back while the carbonation bottles cling to the glass.

The aroma is caramel and toffee malts all the way with a definite sugar sweetness eking its way into the picture. Hops are near non existent.

The body is creamy and smooth but much of that ahs to be due to the nitro can.

The taste is also very sweet and caramel in nature with a fairly clean but mildly bitter hop finish. It is very English. Very pub quaffable.

I used to drink this one a lot but it does not appeal to me as much as it did 10 years ago. Changing palate I presume.

Great looks. Starts with a beige creamy appearance that turns into a copper color. Thick and creamy head with good retention and painting a wall of laces.
Aroma similar to a creamy English Bitter with earthy hops and a mild tangy citrusy.
Flavor follows nose, notes of English earthy hops, lightly tangy grapefruit, caramels, a bit of toasted malts, yeast and finishing herbal. Dry aftertaste with an elegant bitterness.
Medium body with low carbonation. Creamy sensation.
It tastes nice but it is a bit too bland and sweet, but not necessarily with a big drinkability. Anyway worth trying.

I poured a nitro-can into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear amber color with a fingers worth of white head. Great retention with a lot of foamy lacing.

Smell- Light aroma of toffee and old wood.

Taste- Light caramel malt flavor with some grassy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and creamy with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- Easy to drink but a little bland. Great appearance and feel but the flavor needs a little tweaking.
