From the can. Very clear dark gold color. Very light buttery notes in the nose. Smooth mouthfeel. Honestly, not a lot of much. Little crackers malt. But that's about it. I could drink about one or two dozen whilst watching football. ---Rated via intercellular device

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.

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 (3951) - 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.

brnandersen (1838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
50 cl. nitro-can from SB. Clear, amber-golden colour with a thin, dense, white nitro-head. Fruity, somewhat subdued aroma with bread, green apples, lightly toasted malts, caramel and grasses. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and lightly bitter with fruits, earthy hops and light caramel malts. Okay Bitter.

50 cl nitro-can in Hong Kong, 19 HK$. 5.7%. Clear amber color, thick creamy off-white head. Bubblegum nose. Taste is slightly caramellized, mildly malty, brown sugar, almond. Balanced taste, smooth bitterness. Low carbonation, easy to go with. Quite ok can bitter.

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.
