Watery, tasteless. Very foamy after opening the can. Only redeeming factor is that it's easy to drink, since it tastes like nothing.

It's nice to find an affordable tasty small beer.
Nitro can puts on quite a show with a slow settling of the very creamy head. Body is a nice orange amber and quite clear. Nitro leaves the classic nitro aroma and pulls mostly malt and hops in the background.
The nitro seems to give this a bigger body and of course some creaminess. Flavor is nice balance of a little nutty and a touch of sweetness in the malt. The hops provide some nice flavor and and balancing to the sweetness and a soft and quiet lingering bitterness.
I like this for being out with my buddies and drinking session that leaves me good the next morning.

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.
