A - poured from the token black and yellow can a perfect head, as per usual, and has a lighter amber colour. not relevant to the style, however.
S - aromas...hmm. Well, I might say that I could blame smelling nothing on my sinuses, but I remedied that problem. I guess then I would say it has, if much of anything, a slight metallic ambiance from the can.
T - very smooth, the head is thick, and I have to agitate the beer in my mouth to effect a stronger bitterness from the hops.
MF - the lack of taste and carbonation leave me wanting to chug the whole glass, as I am thirsty. However, the wateriness is off putting to me, and should not be a characteristic of a beer of this sort, though, their tm 'smooth and creamy' does ring loud, but not to any good effect.
D - very drinkable as mentioned above, but again, too drinkable. It is very much chug-able like a similar nitro-can stout I know and disdain.
Serving type: nitro-can

A- Reviewed from a red Solo cup, but from the reviews I've seen on Yoube, beer is a dark golden color in body. The head on mine was extremely thick and creamy. Looked on par for a widget can beer. I think the nitro can beers look better than ones without the CO2, but that's just my opinion.
S- Light, sweet caramel malts, graininess, grassy. Not a huge amount going on, but from what's there, it smells nice.
T- Again, follows the aroma. Sweet caramel malts is the main flavor. The maltiness is light. Fair amount of grassy, earthy graininess. Nothing that wows, but the flavors work together.
M- Light and refreshing. Texture is extremely creamy from the nitro widget in the can. Extremely easy to drink. This doesn't have a large presence of carbination. Finish is sweet before it drys with that grainy taste. Not bad at all.
Overall this beer is slightly better than average, but not much. It's very light in character and body. But the grains and caramel malts play well together. C+/B- is where I'm at on Boddington's Pub Ale.
