Look - Pours exceptionally well. But that's to be expected of a widget can. The cascade is always nice to watch. Color is good, a nice shade of amber. The head is great and lasts for days.

Smell - Sweet smell with some nice subtle undertones. A nice combination of the hops and barley in this ones nose.

Taste - A nice clean flavor with a slight touch of bitterness at the finish. Develops nicely and lingers just the right amount.

Mouthfeel - Good feel. About what I would expect from this type of beer in this type of can.

Drinkability - This is a nice drinking beer. The kind of thing I'd take out to mow the lawn, or for watching a baseball game. I could drink a bunch.

Packaging - I love a can with a widget, but that's just me. It is nice to note that they tell you about said widget right on the cans. Nice bright colors. It just about shouts, "hey, I'm a British beer." I'd say they marketers are also trying to give it the, look our label is in an old style, we've been around a long time, type of treatment.

Serving type: can

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This beer is a medium yellow with a little haze to it from the nitro can, which builds up a white head that's creamy, though not the beautiful creaminess and strength provided some by the nitro. Lace is moderate in its body and filmy and, above all, consistent.
It doesn't smell too light to me. It's very biscuit in the malt backbone with sweetness like fruits, including banana, and caramel. It's also slightly earthy, with a little mineral element to it, and with just enough diacetyl to fit guidelines, it seems.
The flavor is a little toastier and leafier with the same earthy backbone and a sweetness that offers the same notes but in less force. It goes a little grainy, and slowly develops a little astringency in the back. The leafy hops seem to end up going somewhat vegetal and offer a slight sourness by the end.
The nitro offers lots of creaminess and a nice flow in the light body with its gentle crispness. What I notice in this beer, though, is that it falls off at the end of every sip and thins out. Still, it doesn't fall too far, and keeps up a pretty good smoothness.

Serving type: nitro-can
