Poured from a nitro can into a pint glass. Pours translucent orange yellow with a creamy nitro head. Smells of sweet grain, not much else. Tastes of creamy sweet grain with slight banana and berries. Beer is light bodied, nitro creamy, easy drinking. Overall, an above average beer.

Look: 3.25
A pale and hazy straw color. 1-finger head. Flattens out very quickly.
Smell: 2.5
Nearly nothing to smell here. A very slight biscuit. A tiny hint of spice.
Taste: 3.25
There’s a strange off flavor at first that turns into a hint of citrus and coriander. Flavors that swirl around shortly thereafter are light malt, wheat, orange, yeast, and bread. These are very subdued and hard to pick out I need to mention.
Feel: 3.0
Very thin. Not much carbonation so it is pretty flat from the beginning.
Overall: 3.0
Only get one of these as a single if you want to try it. I can’t imagine getting a 4 pack or more of these. It is a bit creamy. There is a funk that I just couldn’t get past. Closest thing I can compare it to is Cream of Mushroom Soup!!! Sounds crazy, but there are hints of mushroom here.

Not a good beer to me it tastes like a beer with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in it . Not a fan of nitros.

Bought a single can from Don Quiojte $2.89
Hazy orange-golden color
Low carbonation after pour settles
Smell of sweet lemon
Taste sweet of lemon and bananas, reminds me more of a juice than a beer
Overall an interesting experiment, but I would not buy again. Nitro doesn't work for this type of beer.
