White head with no lacing. Smells like green apples. Taste like green apple with no carbonation, malts, hops, but some water. Ha! Not that good.

A- Pours a golden yellow color with a huge, mesmerizing creamy head that sticks around for quite a while. S- Yeasty, some wheat, generic BMCish nose T- Creamy, light hop notes, macro lager, hints of yeast, very middle of the road. M- Low carbonation, very creamy, unpleasant mouthfeel. D- This is a beer that I certainly drainpoured. I can’t get past the texture, the flavor (or lack thereof) and the nose. Really not something i’d revisit.

Watery but slightly creamy and very easy to drink. Very bready, light malt flavor. Nothing special.

16 FL OZ ($1.99) pretty good ale, light in flavor very easy bit. the kind of beer meant to be guzzled. I liked it and it was real good price. I enjoyed for the price and a good buy if found under what i paid.

Clear golden amber with beautiful head. Not so much aroma, some yeast. Taste is malt. Bitter finish.

This is a classic English bitter. The can is better than draft sometimes. I’d rather be drinking out in England, but it least I can remember being there.

Transfer from BA review on 4-24-12 - Poured from nitro can into pint glass Appearance – Upon pouring from the can there is a yellowish honey colored body. The nitrogen bubble can be seen streaming up through the beer, giving it a lighter color when it is initially poured. As the bubbles cascade up through the beer it leaves a deeper golden colored brew with a nice thick white foam head left on the surface of the brew. Smell – There is a heavy caramel aroma mixed with a bready body. There are some hints of honey and some floral notes mixed in as well, which with the caramel give a rather sweeter smell. Taste – It begins with a strong breadiness. Unlike what is detected in the nose, there is not much sweetness at all. There is a bitterness that develops on the tongue throughout the taste experience. Toward the end there is a floral and grassy flavor that mixes with the breadiness, leaving a somewhat astringent and herbal flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – Creamy due to the nitrogen nature, but the effervescence is low. It would actually do much better from a higher level of carbonation as it wouldn’t accentuate the rather unpleasant flavors left on the tongue like the creamy nitrogen body does. Overall – Really the only thing this brew has is a decent smell and look. The breadiness was nice, but the herbal and astringent flavors really took away from it and as for its mouthfeel, a non-nitrogen driven nature may have suited the flavors better.

This beer pours with a thick and foamy head. Wonderful active bubbles slowly float to the top to form a thick white head. This creamy white head sits on top of a golden amber body with tons of tiny slow rising bubbles. The aroma is floral with some malty notes. The flavor is creamy, sweet and smooth. It has a very light malt character with a watery middle and some bitter hops in the finish. Overall it’s a very interesting beer with smooth light flavors.
