bought this beer about a week ago. pours nicely from the can into the pint glass and produces a great head that last the entire time in the glass. goes down really well and i can taste a little honey/butterscotch in the aftertaste. all in all, i think its a good brew.

Pours a nice honey orangelike color with carbonation throughout the glass, many rising to the top. Two finger thick, creamy milk white head that lasts. Little lacing. Looks pretty nice.

Some grainy and malty aromas with a tinge of honey. No hop presence.

Kinda hard to describe the taste. Light sweetness on the tongue and throughout the mouth. Very little bitterness. Slight touch of grain. Dry, floral notes in the aftertaste. Not much going on.

Nice creaminess, medium body, and just enough carbonation to balance nicely with the creamy mouthfeel. Goes down real smooth and easy. Excellent.

Other than the appearance and mouthfeel, there isn't much to say about this beer. Nothing great going on, just a simple session ale.

It looks like a good pale, and the cascading nitro bubbles help.

The taste is a diacetyl bomb. It even smells like butter, with sweet, slick English malts shining through on the nose. Super creamy and sweet, and goes down insanely smooth.

It feels light and slick, with diacetyl coming through.

A: Most nitro-beers look great, but this is the best. Great cascade, but average golden look. What really makes this beer amazing is the head and lacing. Best of any beer I have ever seen. Your entire glass will be covered in a foam.

S: Smells like malty caramel. Not much on the nose but malt.

T: Great taste. All malt. Some toffee, some caramel, and a drop are coffee. Almost desert like, but not sweet. Sooo good.

M: Very creamy, but not over creamy. A nice balance. Nice warm head on top of a cold beer hits the spot.

O: If you love malt, then this beer is for you. Creamy caramel toffee. No bitterness at all.

On nitro in london, servered in the Boddingtons tulip pint, appearence is clear gold with a white creamy head leaving foamy lace, some big chunks.

Smell is sweet honey and carmel with leafy hops.

Taste is mild, a little biscut and carmel, and more of those wet leafy hops. Decent bitterness.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, light bodied.

Drinkability is high from a sessionability perspective. There is enough flavor to keep it interesting, yet light enough to not fatigue the palate. Better than I ever remebering those cans tasting at home!
