Fake cask beer, what else is there to say but nasty. Cask beer is definitely an acquired taste. This is an unfair review because i can't drink'em.

Decanted into a tulip pint glass; 23 Oct 2017 stamped on the bottom of the can. Pours a light copper color; after separation and clearing, nice retention of half inch, eggshell white head. Slightly citrus in nose, tastes sweet with a little bitter hoppiness, closing without aftertaste. An great, old standby.

The pour on this beer is really great, nitro beers are always fun to watch. Leaves a great fluffy white foam. There isn't much smell to speak of, lightly floral hops. Very light flavorless beer. Its light, easy drinking and silky smooth from the nitro. Not a bad beer, not really great, its just an easy drinking pub ale.

DATE: March 5, 2017... OCCASION: first Sunday feast during the season of Lent... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... quite a spectacle straight from the can, with a cascading effervescence that roils up the glass that piles a thick, steady snow pack of white... body is honey amber, with the slightest traces of bubbles around... soft buttery notes begin the aroma... some malty traces, but tough to notice more... a dank, bar rag aroma lingers, which doesn't endear it... sips a creamy, understated body--almost light-bodied--that lingers on the teeth moderately... a thin maltiness finishes... some citrus hints--lemon grass, mostly--with apple, butter, and basement... maybe a bit better than the sum of its parts, as it encourages the next sip as a "pub" ale should, with mild bitterness and crushability, but not among the pub ales I would suggest or serve to others....

I bought a four pack from a local bottle shop. They were fairly cheap. There was a code on the bottom of the can but no date. I'm guessing the date was in Julian. After chilling the cans for about three hours I carefully cracked one open and then using the 45 degree angle technique poured the contents into a nonic pint glass. Once settled the color was amber and a nice two finger thick head. The beer smelled of white bread crust but it was faint. Upon sipping it tasted smooth, creamy, and slightly sweet. A decent amount of lacing. The mouth feel was creamy, a little slick, but refreshing. Over all not a bad beer even if it is mass produced. I think they did a nice job with the can and widget. Normally I would have deducted for it being owned by Inbev but unlike Bass they did a nice job. I noticed The Bros said this beer was awful. Well they can go FUCK OFF. This is a good beer.

A: Slight copperish orange color, with a thick, creamy white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.
S: Slight sugary aroma.
T: Fairly sweet, little hop flavor, mostly biscuity malt.
M: Medium bodied, surprisingly thicker than you'd expect given the tastes.
O: An okay beer, that I would try. But, I'd never make a habit of ordering this one.
