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.

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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Had from can on 01/26/03
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A tan dirty brown color with a small head. Aroma is slightly musty. This goes down creamy, slight bitterness, pretty smooth. This was decent on tap, I dont think I will try the canned version.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2003 Re-rate: Pale gold with a thick, creamy white head. Aroma is a soft floral bitterness. Taste starts floral and perfumy bitter, then lightens on the finish. Creamy, smooth, and easy to drink, but a bit watery and thin.

I was turned onto this by one of the bartender's at Fado in Atlanta. Very smooth and creamy and easy to drink, a little liter than what I expected, but a great brew all the same.
