ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, - JUN 14, 2008
Beautiful looking beer once the nitro storm in the glass has died down after pouring from the can. Copper colour with no sign of carbonation but a thick white head with excelllent retention that leaves lashings of lacing. Aroma is gently sweet and vaguely hoppy. Palate is creamy yet watery. Flavour is pretty one dimensional and flat, with a weakly bitter edge. OK, but after finishing one I’m hardly dying for another.

sarauckelman (372) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Clear amber with thick head. No aroma. Amazingly thin and watery, with water being the predominant flavor, followed by a bit of beer and then a bit of hops. Insipid.

Pours golden, very creamy off-white head. Almost no aroma to speak of. Watery. Nearly flavorless.

Bland, watery and weak... only to be drunk when nothing else is available anywhere...

Towey1989 (1580) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2016
Keg at The Lion, Stoke-On-Trent. A clear deep golden colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts, some metal and slight fruits. Taste of caramel, some bready malts, slight fruits, a little apple and subtle metal. Light bodied but a watery texture. A short, malty bitterness in the finish. It’s a bland, watery draught bitter, I wasn’t expecting much.

Cunningham (6662) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 5, 2016
A bit dull pub ale. Anyway easy drinkable and you do not get that drunk ha ha.
Clear deep golden color with a creamy off white head. Ok lacing Down the glass. Medium light body and a soft carbonation. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Tad sweet and a mild bitterness. Caramel malty and some bready notes. A bit waterish actually.
[On tap at Cafe Balzar - Stansted Airport (London), England]

Can. Light amber colour, minimal head. Intensive green apple and nothing more. Light bitterness. Very watery. Does not taste like a beer. Awful.

Tranquillity (1743) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2015
Draft in Canada. Lovely head, just like a nitro can. It’s orange, with a big fluffy head. The aroma is flowery, the taste has some alcohol.

rlgk (17125) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2015
Draught at Leonardo Hotel, Heathrow. Clear golden beer with a nice foamy offwhite head. Malty bready aroma, sourish with fruity notes. Fruity malty flavor, bready, grass, sourish, some caramel and with floral notes. Thin bodied and kinda boring.
