I had this on tap, and it must be a major improvement over the packaged versions. Very unusual look with nitro head on such a pale orange body. The flavor was altogether too light---the quality of the flavor was there--a mixture of hops and fruit tang--but not nearly enough of it. The lack of flavor made the relatively light body irritatingly hollow. This is almost a very good brew. It just doesn’t quite make it.

Was this a light beer, cause it sure tasted like one. Watery-thin, almost completely lacking anything in taste with more of a sourness than a bitterness. Many people I know have said good thigns about this beer, perhaps leading to my huge dissapointment. It even looked like a light beer with a orange-golden color.

A very nice creamy head. Nitro enhanced, deep amber ale. smooth finish, simple and quite enjoyable

I’ve always loved the look of nitro beers and admire the way they cascade and settle. Very dramatic. Should have probably stopped there before getting into the whole ’tasting’ aspect of this ’beer’. As smooth, watery, and astoundingly bland as a canned nitro brew undoubtedly could be. Some vague pear, apple, and buttery flavors. Palate absolutely awful. Finish is bland and nasty. Golly. Can’t wait to get an entire case of this one. Mainly so I can pour it down the toilet and save some other poor soul from having to experience this crap.

A mild tasting beer that is pleasant to drink.

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.
