I love this beer. It’s one you can even drink on a lunch break. The lack of carbonation towards the end makes it one of my favorites.

I’m a big fan of the bumble bee - one of my favorites. Not nearly as good out of the can as on tap. Probably one of the creamiest beers that I’ve had (in a much more positive sense than a beer like the Wexford Cream Ale). I’m having a hard time describing how good this beer is...

I hope that we got a can that had just been sitting too long. After all, Boddington’s is on tap nearby...as it was, however, this was pretty gross. Didn’t taste like much but there was this unspeakable aftertaste. Definitely a creamy head though. I don’t feel as strongly about it as Grant410 though.

This stuff is gross. Nitro can. Apple juice color with a creamy, obviously nitro-induced head. Smells like pears and iron. Tastes like pear water with metallic aftertaste. Way, way undercarbonated. No body. Nasty swill.

Re rate : Same DraughtFlow system than in Guinness cans. Sweet honey taste. Quite good but lacks of strength.

A drinkable beer that isn’t as bitter as I expected. The pour is excellent with a slow developing head. The pour in itself makes the beer worth the experience, but it is too watered down. There is not enough punch in this beer for the nitrogen to smooth it out.

I agree with skortila about this beer. Beautiful thick body, creamy lasting head. Somewhat malty, bitter and a bit sweet. Creamy palate.

Beautifull thick body, golden/orange colour. Bit malty aroma. Moderate bitter, sweet taste, very smooth palate. Nice, but not convincing.

i like to call this beer the guinness inverse, creamy like the stout but without all the heaviness. bravo, manchesterr.
