Pours a rich golden yet clear from a pint can. Very elaborate head that has a classic nitro formation which settles to a 1 finger thick head that doesn’t quit. Has a sweet maltiness with a slight metallic twinge. Hints of bread linger as well. Has a wheat bread taste that drops off to mild hop flavor with little to no bitterness. Hints of dough reside as well. Has a slick mouthfeel to it. Overall not a bad brew and pretty refreshing.

labattslover74 (56) - Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Poured from a can, very thivk cream that hasnt dissipated yet 5 minutes after pouring. Copper color with a bread sweet smell. Taste of hops, dough and caramel. It is like Guiness stout, but a lot less harsh, and has a smooth sweet finish. Not bad.

Dzhigga (146) - Kirov, RUSSIA - AUG 8, 2014
Can. Copper color with small but steady head. Aroma of cream. Carbonation is low. Taste is smooth and milky with nice bitterness in aftertaste. Nice ale for drinking.

TizzleJizzle (628) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pint can. Poured an attractive golden yellow color with a massive frothy white top and tons of lacing. All downhill after appearance. Taste of watered down bread malts with a subtle hop bitterness finish. Boring low carbonation, creamy medium body.

ljthiessen (516) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Can (with a widget). Golden yellow with a thick, dense white head, just like a Guinness. Light malty caramel aroma. Very light, smooth flavour of light, creamy malts - very smooth and easy drinking, but not much flavour.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 This was one of my first English bitters, from before I got acquainted with the ’real’ thing. Dense, typical nitro head, snow white, colour misty golden blonde. Malty aroma, creamy, hoppy; taste soft and buttery, metallic, creamy, not very complex, ending in a one-dimensional leafy hop bitterness.

50 cL can. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma has some caramel, malts and some vegetables. Taste is watery, some malts, light bitter. Medium body, light to medium carbo. Boring stuff.

Pours clear amber with a tightly bubbled head, creamy finish with malty flavours and mild bitterness. A bit thin but sessionable for sure.

ClubGonzo (4236) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Can. Pours a clear light amber body with a large, long-lasting nitro off-white head. Nose is caramel, toffee bread and hints of red fruits and white chewing gum. Taste is faint caramel, bread, bitter herbs and hints of fusel-ish chemical notes and vague grainy tones. Full, nitrogen-creamy body, soft prickling carbonation. Not really my kind of beer, but I’ve had worse examples of this species.
