16oz nitro can poured into a tulip

A- pours clear amber color with a three-finger sudsy white head. The can says that this is a nitro can, but the pour definitely doesn't suggest it

S- malty notes on the nose gives aromas of bread crust and cracker, spicy hops with an undertone of caramel and honey

T- toasted bready and caramel malts, followed by some peppery and fruity hops mid-palate. The finish is slightly fruity, with more bready toasted malts on the linger

M- medium body with high carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a biting finish. Again, I'm not sure why the can says nitro

O- a solid ESB, but the high carbonation just doesn't match the style, especially given that it was labeled as a nitro can
