Can. Poured a clear medium amber with a medium sized creamy head that was fully lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was very light with notes of sweet bread malts, grainy hops and a and a mild doughy yeast. It tasted mild an slightly bitter from start to finish with the flavor lasting quite a long time. Mouthfeel was watery yet very creamy in texture and light to medium in body. Overall I would have to say the CO-2 disc made all the difference (it rolled up the glass like a Guiness). Although it was very creamy it was a bit to light.

On draft, this so-called "pub ale" is an interesting English style pale ale, lighter than I expected but features the nitro smoothness of a Guinness. Thus features a good creamy texture and copper appearance, creamy head with full retention throughout the pint, smells weak of caramel malt. Taste is likewise weak, slightly earthy hops, some caramel malt. Drinkable, light, pleasant, however something macro-ish about it, but enjoyable as a table beer. There are much better English ales out there.

willisread (486) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 19, 2015
Old rating. Can from Old Town. Pours an amber color with nice creamy head do to the nitro action. Malts and caramel on the nose. Mildly bitter inoffensive beer.

Inoffensive, smooth golden ale. A solid pub pint, even from the can. Definitely a nice turn for those wanting a post-work drink.

samzim (301) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Clear copper colour. Clean front with light grainy and toffee notes. Slightly watery with mild carbonation. Beer is fine, but I wouldn’t get it again.

Old rating. Dark Amber colored. Grainy, caramel, some sweetness, creaminess from the widget thing worked well. Just fine.

Padchenko (125) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2015
Creamy amber beer with good-sized head. Low carbonation. A light, sweet bitter. Goes down easy when having only 1 or 2. I don;t recommend having more than that as it can be a bit sickening

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/16/15] Draught at Cameron’s Inn in Half Moon Bay. Clear amber. Aroma of caramel and graininess. Weak flavor, a bit grainy, a bit caramelly, with light bitterness. Light-bodied.

cblado (269) - Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Pint can. Pours a goldenrod color with a thick nitrous head. Aroma is very faint, but mainly sweet yeast and malt. Flavor is also very sweet, sort of like wet cardboard. Palate is creamy, but kind of flat. Not a big fan.
