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.

Poured into a frosted pint glass.
Nice Head
Noticed Initial separation and activity - like a Guinness.
Tart aftertaste.
A little too mello for my taste, but overall a decent beer with very low ABV.

Surprising all the negative reviews.I suppose I will! never be able to unlike this given -- for years -- the only nitro can beers you could find were Bod , Guinness, and a couple others. Snob is as snob does.

This is one of my favorite session beers. It's just harder to find where I live. As many others point out, it pours copper in color with a fun cascading effect that you get from nitrogenated beers. The head is a dense, creamy foam that does leave some nice lacing on the glass. It smells and tastes a little sweeter than a lager, and has a creamier feel. Over all, it's a nice smooth, crisp beer that's really easy to drink. Highly recommended!

look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from "draughtflow" (nitro) can into English pub glass

Look--Spectacular head and lacing--but "thin" looking--kind of like iced tea.

Aroma--Not offensive, but there isn't much. Fruity and floral, but lacking any balance from anything.

Taste--Creamy and smooth, and fairly sweet. Generally lacking in anything to offset it. No real malt, hop, or other notes to speak of. Again, not offensive, but not a winner either.

Feel--Creamy rather than carbonated. Rather thin. Sticky and cloying rather than crisp. Lacks a good finish, and as a result, isn't terribly refreshing or drinkable.

Overall--Not a drain pour, but not a repeat. Look elsewhere.

Looks thick and dark. Smell is mild. Feel is smooth and creamy just as like promised. This feels like a real pub-beer right out from a can =) Easily drinkable beer. Not good for great amounts thought, because after 1 liter taste begins accumulate and feel awful, so it's not so drinkable anymore.
/////////////////
Näyttää paksulta ja tummalta. Mieto haju. Smooth and creamy, lunastaa lupauksensa. Tulee mieleen oikea pubiolut. Pehmeä, helposti juotava ja jälkikäteen vähän kihelmöivä. Helposti juotava, melko laimea. Pubimaisia mielikuvia nostattava. Hyvä perus olut. Kuitenkin litran jälkeen maku kerääntyy ja olut alkaa maistua pahemmalta, joten suurien määrien juontiin tämä ei ole soveltuva.
