2.75/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Somewhat of a gusher of a can when first opened, clarity and head is great. Clean floral and mildly estery aroma and flavour. Thin malt with one simple flavour throughout. Flavours are flat and seem not to meld together well in an odd processed way. This is not my can of beer.

Serving type: nitro-can

1.65/5  rDev -48.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Presentation: 1 pint "Draughtflow System" can. Poured into a proper Imperial pint glass.

Appearance: An amber brew with slight chill haze. An amazing cascading effect produces a 1 finger thick perfect nitro-induced creamy white fluffy head that sticks to the glass and never goes away.

Smell: Clean. Faintly floral with dextrins, faint fruity esters and metallic in the aroma.

Taste: Silky. Silky smooth, soft and creamy. Body is medium. A toasty malt sweetness starts of the experience, it's thin though but gets better as the beer warms. Hops are very gentle, not overly bitter, but rather complementary, floral in taste. Hops are also slightly raw and leafy in the feel. There's some coarseness and bitty-ness that follows, along with a strong metallic flavour on the palate. This carries through into the finish as the beer dries up with a mouthful of strong grain tannins and a grain husk/powdery feel.

Notes: Not a dreadfully bad brew. It's rather mild, making it an okay session bitter for fans. However, the metallic and grain tannin aftertaste is a bit much for my palate and rather annoying. The aftertaste literally murders this beer. I wouldn't purchase this beer for my own consumption.

And, too bad about the nitro. Nitro beers, in general, tend to mask a lot of the beers character ... which is why most nitro beers share common characteristics, regardless of their style.

Serving type: nitro-can
