14.9 oz can with a widget poured into and English pint. I love nitro beers, with the texture and
How smooth and creamy this ale is. I only had it one other time on tap. A similar cream ale to Boddingtons in my opinion. Easy, drinkable beer.

Had a bit of a bland, boring flavor. Drinkable, but

Pours a dark red color with quickly dissipating creamy head, a bit of which stays to the end. Very faint grain and malt aroma. Flavor is light caramel, nuts, milky-smooth and pleasantly malty. Medium body with low carbonation leads to a silky and creamy mouth feel that continues into a velvety finish. Subtle, but enjoyable and super drinkable.

16oz nitro can, poured into a pint glass

A- pours a clear irish-red color with a two finger- thick & creamy white head that seems like it will retain for days, thick lacing left behind

S- toasted grains with a hint of caramel malt, some fruity esters and bread crust, cream soda

T- cream soda up front gives way to grainy malt & toasted bread, faint floral hop and some fruity notes on the close

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to silky and creamy mouthfeel that continues into a velvety finish, superior drinkability

O- nitro cream ales have their time and their place, and when I'm in the mood for one, they hit the spot perfectly

A beautiful chestnut color with a nitro-induced off-white head, this is otherwise an average and forgettable ale. Smells of malt (very distant) and not much else. Nit has little hop character, except for some small balancing bitterness. Smooth, but not a lot of flavor. Nothing offensive, but not really worth the time.
