Outstanding. One of my favorites. Amber, foamy, creamy, just the right amount of bitter.....I love this one.

This beer is explosive when opened . Poured into a pint glass pretty fast and didn't overflow . Fun to watch the beer settle and form a rich and thick creamy head . Beer Has a light blonde color. Appearance looks delicious. I noticed a citrus lemon smell. Beer is malty and not much flavor. Slight bitter aftertaste . Bland. I usually get this beer once a year. Not a bad beer and not a good beer . Might be delicious to drop a shot in with its overall bland taste. Price is pretty cheap.

I had this ale for the first time a couple years back in a little pub in Brighton, England. I immediately fell in love with it. It's extremely smooth, thick creamy head and the bitter notes hit the back of the tounge just right. Luckily it's really easy to find here in Phoenix and Churchill's Pub and Grill always have it on tap.

poured thick and goldan and settled slowley, it smells sweet. my first sip and i was in love this is sweet and malty and goes down smooth, this one is the smothist beer i have ever had. this one goes down like drinking creem. the taste is light but hardy at the same time, this is the closest to cream and honey in a beer i have ever had.

Bought at Uncle Sudsy's, a six pack shop at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I bought a four pack of pint nitro cans.
Apperance- the apperance is a cool amber
Smell- the smell is very smooth with a creamy aroma
Taste- fabulous taste, very creamy and smooth
Mouthfeel- the beer has a kick to it and makes my mouth tingle
Drinkability- I could drink about eight with out trouble but any more I may fall a few times

A - A very dense amber color.

S- Almost not there, "almost" bready.

T- Excellent, it is exactly what it is supposed to be. Creamy. Perfect Pub Ale

M- Again very creamy, full feeling almost thick.

O- This is definitely one of if not my favorite Ale. Hands down.

Serving Type: Nitro Can

From draft at Nick's Pub in St. Louis

This is my favorite ale. I always get this when it is available on draft. From a can it is remarkably similar to draft.

It arrives at the table still rolling with carbonation. It typically settles with a finger or so if thick, rich cream colored head. Medium to dark amber color. Very pleasant aroma.

The taste is very smooth and mellow. Very well balanced. Slight hop flavor, but not strong or intense. This is an excellent beer to start the night with, or for session drinking.

Wow, I cannot believe this beer rated as poorly as it did! I truly find this a very unique brew.

Its the 'other' Guinness draught being lighter in color, and yet not any less interesting. Its flavor is very mellow, yet rich, and its overall creamy texture make the beer allot of fun to drink.

Its bubbles cascade just as Guinness draught's does...

I purchase this beer after the holidays in January, and consume it through early spring. I will report back later with a more detailed, definitive review of this beer.
