An average pour yields quite a show. The cascade affect in this beer is just wonderful. After a minute or so, it leaves me with a little over a finger of creamy off-white head. This dissipates in a couple of minutes to about half a finger of head, and never shrinks from there. Leaves a bit of lacing, and the body is a nice amber color.

Odors of malt, grassy hops and banana create a nice smelling beer.

Watery malt, watery grass, watery banana and watery spices make this one a disappointing sip after the buildup with the look and the smell.

This beer tastes watery, build the feel is a nice medium bodied creaminess. It's slightly drying on the back end and slightly bitter, good going down if not great tasting.

Looks like a doors light meets a Guinness, creamy bright white head and super pale straw color with good clarity. Grainy nose with subtle english hops. Initial thinness up front which gets fuller from the nitrogen. Feels bizarre in the mouth. Straw and caramel sweetness up front. Slightly soapy. Silky. Hop presence is barely noticeable. Nitrogen gives an almost no carbonation feel to a beer that needs one. Some butteryness on the finish.

Gross, flat and bizarre. Im not a fan

1 pint nitro can served in pint glass. I loves me some nitro. Beer pours with the beautiful cascade effect of guinness, except the accumulating brew at the bottom is a pale yellow amber, not black. Thick, creamy, snow white head.

Not much in the aroma, but faintly sweet. Beer itself is creamy and mild. Super high drinkability: no off flavors, and the nitro-cream texture goes well with the mild flavor. And while the balance is good, there's hardly any flavor there. Still, could be worse.
