A decent color and creamy head, typical of the draughtflow cans. Aroma is a little sweet, though a bit too weak. Flavor is alright, but lacks any "bite" or some characteristic to make it stand out. At best, an average beer.

Light caramel colour, not much aroma (maybe a bit of caramel or butterscotch), plus on top of that they managed to hide the flavour very well.

It was ok. Nothing to write home about. Seemed to be very watery and lacking in taste. Way too pricey for what you get. I'd rather drink Schlitz.

Nice widget induced pour - not quite as dramatic as others though. Nice creamy, lacing white head. Smooth milky texture throughout. Nice bitter flavor that goes down smooth. Aroma - clean and fresh - no real discernibility to it. Overall a good standby - love the look of the can too.

Murph06 (121) - Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Interesting appearance when poured from the can---and follow the instructions for best results. The "milky" foam head is unique (to me) and adds a buttery texture/flavor as you sip. Nice light bitterness but needs more flavor. Takes some getting used to, but after 3 cans I like it.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2003
Draughtflow canning system creates a pour that delivers a nice white creamy head, and the body takes a while to settle. Flavour is mild, creamy and extremely smooth. However, after it settles and sits for a bit the taste is rather light and watered down.

Aubrey (3491) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2003
Clear and golden with a foamy white head. Creamy-soft texture; light carbonation; kind of watery. Malt flavors aren't very expressive. Not much bitterness either, though there is a bit in the aftertaste, with time. Had a metallic off-flavor that I didn't enjoy too much. Not bad, but rather bland.

What a good looking beer, brilliant clarity and a golden color with a white head that lasts for quite some time. There is a very pleasane, very light, hop aroma along with slight fruitiness. as the beer warms the malt does start to peek through in the nose. medium-high bitterness and a very clean finish dominate the flavor of this beer, the balance is definitely tipped to the bitter side. the hop flavor is barely apparent, but that is appropriate for the style. after a few sips i started to notice an apply ester in the flavor as well. this beer leaves the mouth moist and clean with a clean aftertaste and a watery body created by light body and low carbonation. very easy to drink beer, great for a session beer.

Clear gold with a thick, creamy white head. Light hop aroma with faint note of caramel. Medium bitterness with some light malt flavor. A faint note of esters. Creamy aftertaste. Light and watery with light carbonation. A bit of malt aroma would make it better in my book. Nonetheless, on a hot day without better beers to drink, this would go down easily.

Pours tan with slight, creamy head. The taste is extremely creamy (thanks to the widget I would presume) and while slightly bitter, tastes pretty good.
