The nitrogen completely occludes any flavors that might be in this beer, leaving a carbonation-less Bud in its wake. Garbage.

This was my first ’widget ball’ beer. This is a great tasting ale and the ball makes a naturally creamy head.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Refreshing, pleasant bitter flavor. Pretty to look at. I was impressed with this.

I’m no expert on aroma, but whatever aroma this has, I don’t like it, though it gets a 2, because it HAS an aroma. First taste wasn’t all that good, second and third was pretty good but the more I drank the less I liked it. Kind of reminded me of a weaker Old Speckled Hen which I tried not too long ago for the first time.

Fairly flat and unimpresive at first.My father-in-law said it reminded him of motor oil. So its not for everbody! At least it finishes smooth.

Definitely needs to be served just below room temperature.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 Rich, creamy and carbonated. Compliments food nicely, and is non-offensive. Has a nice golden color with the widget nitro-head. Not bad !!

Bugger this useless crap. No flavour, no aroma, no colour. What does it have? Alcohol? So does vanilla.
