3/8 inch head... very light brown layer on bottom with a bubbly-ish layer above the tan-line that's white mixed with something a bit darker than the lowest level, and then the very long lasting head. Head mostly stays and the two layers merge to an even prettier transparent brown (that's a bit darker than it started). A beautiful beer to watch settle.

Smells like it tastes.

An interesting choice if your only other nitro was a Guinness because, except for the nitro, they are of course nothing alike.

Innocuous in the way that we thought Newcastle was. Definitely nothing at all of the extra bite/kick of something like Hobgoblin.

Poured from can into pint glass.
A: Pours a clear gold with 1 inch creamy/foamy head. Good retention.
S: Mild malt and even milder hops. A bit off here.
T: Wow...horrible. Like water, but only worse. Absolutely bad.
M: Light body. Watery. Creamy feel from the nitro is the only saving grace here.
D: Very, very bad. Don't waste your time. So many better beers to enjoy...
