Nitro cans are quite an adventure - make sure you have your glass ready when cracking one open. The widget - a cylinder glued to the inside bottom of the can in this case - really does its job as long as you start pouring right away.

The cascade of foam is impressive and leaves a silky white head when it is done with its game. Lace is left thickly down the inside of the glass from the top to the bottom. The beer itself is quite flat when the cascade is over. I realize an English pub ale is not supposed to be as sparkly as an industrial lager, but I do like slightly more condition remaining than I found in this glass. Color is light copper and brilliantly clear.

Aroma is fruit and caramel, but muted by, I think, the nitrogen. Caramel sweetness is backed up by a firm bitterness. Not crisp like a pilsner, but certainly more than a bitter.

The caramel sweetness and bitterness balance nicely and invite another pint.

Serving type: nitro-can
