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.

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!
