poured into a pint glass

A: on nitro so the initial pour looks beautiful but when it clears it's pretty straight forward clear straw colored laced the glass nicely as a nitro beer should

S: very mild smells up front crackery and bready

T: this hits your tongue and the taste is very muted then you swallow and you pick up some toasted breads and maybe a touch of Carmel

M: I do not like nitro beers much if gives them a flat feel to me but this was creamy, like most beers of this style tend to be

O: while I wouldn't drive to the bar to get this one, I was surprised by the nice finish on the beer other than that the beer is fairly forgettable.

Amber color with a thick thin head that keeps a constant plate.
Tangy fruity aroma with notes of papaya.
Similarly, sweet fruity flavor with notes of papaya, cinnamon, maybe nuts, some corn and a floral hint.
Rather creamy body with mild carbonation. A bit watery when carbonation runs down.
Not sure I would call it the fair Guinness. It is a bit overly sweet and lacks complexity.

Enjoyable for buying in a can. (I prefer draft.) Relatively smooth and creamy pour.
