440ml can, 3.5% abv, shared on the train to Euston, London. Nitro, creamy head over a copper-like body. Very weak on aroma, some sweet malts. Sweet flavoured water with a few notes of roastiness and a very discreet bitter end. Nonoffensive, but has got very little to offer (05.05.2009).

Hazy brown with llots of bubbles and artificial-looking head.
Hardly any flavour, watery and uninteresting. I did not finish my glass of this!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(50cl can with 44cl content) Clear, light-amber colour with a creamy white layer. Slightly sweet and toasted malty nose with subtle fruity notes. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied with a flat nitro mf. Pretty one-dimensional malt-accented taste with a faint fruity touch; dry and slightly bitter hoppy finish with a tinge of lemon. Not that bad, just a bit plain (27.X.08).

3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not to be confused with the widget.. this beer is a smooth yet clean beer with a strong hop but low alcohol by English Standards

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
[Nitrokeg at the LV Lounge, George Hotel, Reading] c5 Pours a dark, dirty gold with a moderate, lasting creamy white head. There is a slight carbonation, and the mouthfeel is a lot less smooth than other nitro/smooth ales. Initial taste is metallic, but eventually some sweet malt comes through, with a sort of rough-and-ready flavour that feels slight more genuine than your average macro ale. Overall impression is a beer that is weak, watery and metallic. Worse than I remember.
