look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour out from a Nitro-Can and straight of the bat, this beer is beautiful. (The Megan Fox) of beer. Small casscade effect from the pour; not as intense as that of Guinness from the Nitro-can though. SUPER CREAMY Head. seemed to last me the intire glass, and never entirely dissipated. The beer itself is like looking into a jar of honey.

Smell is intiscing. Has some light malts, and kinda hoppy with a banana/pear scent. You can somehow almost smell the creaminess of the head but it may just be me.

Hears the killer... the tast is very mild. A little tooo mild. The smells werent deceitful but deffinately expected something better out of this beer. Not a bad flavor but the appearance and smell told you it had much more instore for you but doesnt. Still qualifies as an ale though. Nothing less.

Mouthfeel is pretty clean with the mildest of carbonations. really light bodied; a perfect ale from a hot day.

Overall not the best beer but not the worsed. The let-down of flavors really isnt cool but had you never seen the pour and had a close-pin over your nose when drank, the beers flavor isnt suffering... just nothing too standout about that.

Serving type: nitro-can

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.
