’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.

superspak (4760) - Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2016
16 ounce can into imperial pint glass, best before 4/2017. Pours clear orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and creamy off white head with incredible, retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Dense creamy lacing clings down the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, honey, light pear/apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, biscuit, honey, light pear/apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Light carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice English pale ale. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Aggiebob (799) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Pint can. Copper color with a nice creamy head. Aroma is a rich maltiness with some sweet honey in the taste. There is some light bitterness. It also has a very creamy mouthfeel.

Cerveja clara e transparente com espuma cremosa. Pouco elaborada e por isso um pouco aguada.

Not sure why I have never rated this beer on here before. This was my first drink when I was twenty one! Just an absolute classic, I need to find this beer on tap somewhere.

Nice thick head, golden color. Light bodied, texture is thin, flat carbonation. A bit bland beer but very drinkable and refreshing after a sauna.

Nurmis (430) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2016
500ml can. Pours golden with thick and creamy head. Mouthfeel is creamy too, its the best thing about this brew. Mild honey and malts. Light bitterness. With more taste this would be excellent.
