’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.

Not very much carbonation or head, which is a little off-putting. But a nice mild bitter hops flavor although it is very thin.

Amber, “Draughtflow” canning system creates unique creamy head and taste, simply pouring it is an experience not to be missed, settles even slower than Guinness, phenomenally mild, creamy and extremely smooth, however, once it settles it reveals its flaws (watery and light)

Smooth tasting, little too creamy. Rich honey and leathery taste. Lives up to its reputation as an alternative to the mass-produced english thirst quenchers. Liked it and will try again!

Looks great, smells good, tastes pretty watery, nothing to good to say about this beer.

Very smooth. A little light on the flavor but still a really good beer.

Give me a fucking break. This has absolutely nothing to offer.

A big creamy head, light bodied yet relatively rich in terms of taste, some sweetness, a nice beer. Thumbs up!

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Verrrrrrrry creamy. Head & lacing lasts forever. Looks terrific off the tap. Flavor is lacking though - not much character or bitterness to speak of. Extremely smooth though...

I’ve had this on tap in the US, and in Britain. Guess which is better. An amazingly creamy head prevails, and the beer is smooth and enjoyable. Nothing special, but it is a beer that you can have a few of at the end of the day and still keep your head.
