Served out of a wonderfully widgeted big English can.

Pinkish copper body, with a slightly pink-tinged dense creamy head. Good lacing sticks to the glass all the way down.

Good toasted, roasted malt aromas on the nose, with a light hint of fragrant citrus, which increases the flavour.

Creamy, rich coating palate. Roasted notes dominate the flavour, finishing dry and astringest, and ultimately refreshing.

A very drinkable and enjoyable brew.

settles to a clear amber colored beer with a stable off-white 1cm thick head. standard nitro-can stuff, but it looks good.
light malty sweet aroma. some floral hops as well, but both are fairly subdued.
a good bit of bitterness quickly cuts any lingering sweetness from the malt. finishes quite cleanly, leaving very little behind.
would have to say the mouthfeel is a bit on the light side, but not extremely so.
overall, not a bad bitter. highly drinkable and no real low points.

2.26/5  rDev -29.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: light brown, good clarity, one finger of off-white creamy foam, great head retention

Aroma: crackers, biscuity sweetness, hint of butterscotch, herbally hops

Flavor: dry malt backbone, fair amount of tanginess, a bit "extracty" in the hop flavor and bitterness, finishes dryish with a tangy aftertaste and some caramel

Mouthfeel: medium-light body, creamy texture, low carbonation

Other comments: What can I say? It's a nitro-can. I hope no CAMRA members spot the fact that I drank a nitro-can and revoke my membership!

Drunk from a nitro-keg at The Hope Pole - Somewhere in the hop fields of Kent. Walnut and vanilla flavour. Mild hop bitterness.

Drunk again from a nitro-keg at a Sports Bar in Portsmouth during the match with Man Utd. Portsmouth winning 2 - 0!

This is really a gently drinkable beer of very little character. The nitro softens everything to a gentle almost tasteless foam. All in all it's a laid back beer with a pleasant enough vanilla caramel flavour. Not a quality drink, but nothing revolting about it.
