3.08/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Canned in a tall can
Pours a very light brown coloured body with a big white head that sticks around
aroma of stewed hops and tin
Flavour has that too with the nitro burn which makes the mouthfeel for a cask drinker feel slightly sickly

Version in can: Brains SA Smooth with 4% abv.
As soon as I opened I heard the nitro canister to break, which was unexpected. White cascades to an amber color with a very thick beige head with eternal retention.
Light aroma of apple puree, English hops and cream.
Flavor with notes of English hops, biscuit and caramel malt sweetness, white grapes, a very distant cocoa and an interesting mild and pleasant tartness. Dry with a medium bitterness.
Light to medium creamy body with mild carbonation.
I found this much nicer than the stout version. Not very complex, but pleasant enough and with a combination of flavors that is hard to find outside UK.
