Nitro can pours amber with perfect nitro foam. Smells of bread, biscuit, and cooked sugar. Flavors are the same in this highly drinkable brew, a staple. If not the most interesting, certainly reliable and enjoyable en masse.

A bit disappointed with this beer. Had a decent color but lacked any strong scent. Hint of a bitter caramel. Tasted watered down. Pretty dull and disappointing but there is worse out there.

This beer is a solid English pale ale. Delicious. Not earth shattering, but completely solid.
