14.9 oz. can with the nitro widget poured into nonic

L: the crazy milky tan liquid pours out like a can of foam, then turns into a gorgeous clear amber-gold/red-copper (as high as 11-12 SRM?) with no activity in the glass; the head settles into about a 1/2-inch of the thickest-looking tan foam you'll ever find, and the sticking and lacing is very cool ... these nitro beers ... the Brothers should just automate a "5" for look because they're that awesome, and this one is, too

S: buttered bread malt, butterscotch, quite sweet, but the earthy hops are working to get some say ... they're not getting much; a light sweet malt showcase

T: sweet bready malt with a hint of earthy hops on the back end, but this one's all about the buttery bready malt sweetness; as I say that, a little more hop flavor shows up, a good neutral bitterness just for balancing

F: flat ... hard for me to call it anything else, considering my American palate trained on carbonated drinks; the the weight is definitely in the middle range and a slight slickness that works well; otherwise ... flat

O: a flavorful tasty beer, very much in the English pale ale range of notes; the nitro thing pulls this beer's score down for me, but I'm still enjoying it because it's a solid bread-malt fix

Looks fantastic. Clear amber with one finger of off white head and very dense lace on the sides.
Smell is mostly toasted bread and some light herbal hops.
Taste is toasted bready malts with a bit of hop bitterness on the back of the tongue.
Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth slick feel due to the low carbonation.
Overall a tasty cream ale for those that enjoy the draught type pub beers made in England.

The beer comes in a reddish amber color with a frothy, marshallow nitro head.

The aroma offers toasted malts, whole bread, hints of sweetness, familiar British yeast fruitiness of apples and year.

The flavor follows with that apple and pear flavor, toasted malts, sweet breadiness, hints of toffee, onto some hops balancing out the finish. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy.
