look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

14.9oz can poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Reddish copper with 2 fingers of ultra-creamy head that sit on the top. Awesome nitro-esque cascading take place after pouring. Good clarity with low carbonation.

Nose
Toffee, caramel, candy sugar, brown sugar and perhaps some hints of cherry and raisin.

Taste
Touches of cherry sweetness along with bready malts and drizzles of caramel. Hints of toffee and brown sugar. The flavor is incredibly light.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, super-creamy and smooth.

Overall
It's basically an Irish Red with a Guinness Draught body. Keep in mind the flavor is incredibly light and this could be highly sessionable.

From the red and black nitro can that doubles as a noisemaker when empty comes a new classic I feel.

Appearnce: Reddish black with a light brown head, smooth carbonation, if any!

Smells: Roast malt, autumnal feeling

Taste: Roast malt, barley, caramel, coffee at finish

Moutheel: thinner, but not too thin

Overall, I'm going to try this on draught. Plus, I think I need another four pack!

Pours a dark brown but it is quite red when one shines enough light through it. Not nearly as much head as regular Draught. Smells rather sweet and malty compared to Guinness Draught. The taste is much like Draught but weaker and slightly sweeter; not bad. Mouthfeel is rather foamy but also watery, definitely not as thick as Draught, but still pleasant. I may buy again next fall if this becomes a staple in the Guinness lineup, it is a nice variation on a theme.

Sample nitro can from my salesman. This pours a reddish, brown color with a foamy head from the widget. The aroma is semi-malty otherwise there is not a whole lot there. The flavor and the texture are both very light as this is one of those beers that feel like you are drinking foam. Not a much in the area of flavor and not a whole lot different than the Guinness Draught.
