440ml nitro can poured into a pint glass. ABV 4.7%.

A - Poured a clear gold with a 1cm head. Foam reduces to a thin layer and very little lacing is produced. Carbonation is visibly quite low.

S - Light grains, hint of something else.

T - Some sweetness, light bread, very light bitterness.

M - Medium body, very low carbonation, creamy, clean finish.

O - Inoffensive and bland. Slightly better on tap but that's not saying much.

Poured from 16 oz. nitro can into a Brooklyn "Tulip" pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep and clear golden orange with a lot of bubbles. Solid three fingers of very creamy off white head. Decent retention and lacing on the glass. Nitro carbonation causes the beer to gush out of the can but it settles down soon after.

Smell: Laid back malt forward aroma with that very British smelling yeast. Bready malts with some hints of biscuit and a little toffee and caramel. Fairly grainy and slightly roasty. Light hints of citrus orange. Light smelling but decent.

Taste: Light and decent tasting. Pale malts and wheat grains. Notes of biscuit and cracker with a little bit of toffee and caramel. Pretty yeasty. Very light hint of hops with some citrus orange esters. Simple and light but a decent and drinkable taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy from the nitro. Very smooth and easy drinking.

Overall: An ok English session ale. Decent flavor. Good for what it is.
