Pours golden brown with an abundance of creamy head. Plenty of retention on the head and the clinging frothy lace lasted and lasted. A distinctly malty nose with a touch of roast to compliment. Mild and malty with a semi-dry finish. Definitely a beer meant for sessioning, but not too bad for what it is.

My friend brought a 4 pack over to a very drunken game of pool, and really talked this stuff up.The can looked so inviting with its bright yellow color, and the name made me think it was going to taste something like that beer stuff in Harry Potter. It poured with a beautiful bubbly head and from across the room looked very appetizing. As I went over to claim my pint, I thought someone might have shit themselves, when suddenly I realized THE BEER SMELLED LIKE F**KING PUKE!!!! poured it down the drain and then poured wet cement down the drain to make sure it wouldn't come back up. Not sure if maybe they were just ancient stock from Publix or what, but oh god it was terrible...

A: Poured a clear golden hue, and as would be expected from a nitro-can, the head was light and foamy, made up of tiny bubbles. The head lingered decently, although the lacing was lackluster.

S: Not much there, really. There's faint, malted grain, to be sure, but then it gets harder to describe. The evergreen aroma of hops seems to be there, as is an almost-soapy smell.

T: No complexity to speak of. The malt is more bready than sweet. Hops is mildly citrus, giving way to a bitter and (again) soapy aftertaste.

M: I think all the bubbles went to forming the creamy head, because there was almost no carbonation left in the beer itself. It was definitely more moist than crisp.

O: That lingering soapy bitterness is a little distracting. It's not that it's a bad beer, but I was hoping for more, especially given its popularly.
