Obvious nitrogen from the appearance, totally unnatural and it alarmed me a bit, since I’m not used to drinking nitrogen beer. Other than that it was boring. No aroma, the smallest amount of fruity apple flavor. Won’t drink this again. Just made me piss a lot. HARDLY a bitter!

If there is a high suicide rate in the UK, this is the reason. Watery, dull flavourless beer. Aroma of wet cardboard and body odour, flavour, what little there is, hinted of cats urine and eye wash. If there wasn’t so much water in it, it would be completely undrinkable. Urine in colour, not at all dark amber, no bitterness worth speaking of unless you like the bitterness that comes from 440mL of cats piss sitting in an aluminium tin for 4 months before coming to the shelves of your local Liquorland. Stupid, watery, nitroed, gimmicky.... drainpour.

I had a friend that kept trying to hook me on this stuff. While it’s not a bad beer, I tend to agree that it suffers being in the crazy can it is in. Would be intersted in seeing a bottle version of it. I like the taste, but it suffers from the influence of the can and the contraption they put in it. It’s creamy and has a nice dark amber color to it. As a bitter, there are much better ones out there.

Had a rather bland taste although the appearance hinted at something a bit more exceptional. I was disappointed. I ordered it on draft at a local pub in L.A. and did not get a second refill opting for a bottle of trustworthy Henekein instead.

Very creamy texture and taste. A bit of a ’tin’ flavour. However, very easy to drink in quantity.

Super cloudy with a decent head. Nice creamy nody balanced nicely for a bitter. Nothing outstanding, but a good session beer.

’The Crap of Manchester’. I think bud or coors light has more flavor. Very watery.

’The cream of Manchester’ has put it’s draftflow system to good use here--it’s a gorgeous beer out of the can. A vibrant yellow with a snowy (cascading nitro) head. But alas, the beer isn’t much to write about--thin and watery, tinny. It has mild caramel and hop notes, but not enough to inspire. Worth buying a can to see it, though.
