Love how this nitrogen pour beer goes from cloudy white to a golem colored beer. You can see this unpasteurized beer with good carbonation. A good half inch thick head of foam with small,tightly packed carbonation bubbles. Light cereal grain aroma. Mouthfeel is somewhat chalky and there's a sweetness that seems out of place in the beer. There's a faint cereal grain flavor that diminishes rapidly. The memory of this beer is better than this.

I love this beer and it's one of the ones I keep constantly stocked at the house! Served in a can that kept the beer very well, let's out a satisfying froth and hiss when opening. Amber in color. A very smooth beer, sweet, earthy flavors with a very very light bite at the very end when swallowing. Keeps a very strong, frothy head for a long time during drinking. The exact opposite of a bitter IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense and creamy off white head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of fruity yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of toffee.
T: The taste has flavors of buttery malts along with notes of fruity yeast and hints of toffee. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and is very smooth and creamy with a moderate amount of visible carbonation.
O: The nitro-can turns an ordinary English ale into an interesting beer—one that has a particularly pleasing mouthfeel and is very easy to drink.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation (after the cascading head from the nitrogen widget) and some faint amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy beige head that very slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted malts, honey, and light amounts of light fruits (apple and pear).

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of toasted and biscuit malts with some light amounts of honey/butterscotch and light fruit (apple) sweetness. There is a slight presence of grassy hops which imparts a light amount of bitterness in the finish which lingers for a moderate amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: I found this one to be real easy to drink and enjoyable though this is a style I likely enjoy more than a lot of other folks using this site. I like the bitterness towards the finish that lingers. Pairs well with snack foods while watching football this Sunday afternoon.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Clear medium amber with reddish-copper hues. Cream colored thin head after the nitrogen settled out.

Pretty muted on the nose: vanilla, light mustiness, light stale malt.

The palate shows a light malt note, creamsicle and a mild bitterness. Short finish.

Medium bodied with a creamy, slick mouthfeel. Insipid bitterness on the finish.

Just not much here to talk about. Pretty bland.
