Widget can. The widget smoothed this one out a little too much, and gave a watery palate. What I could taste was nice, though. I imagine drinking something like this in an old English pub, in the dimple mug that I am using for it now.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2004 Kicked off with yet another pool of beer on my floor thanks to the godforsaken widget. Creamy nitro-head and dark copper body. Good malty nose and some butter and nuttiness. More nutty malt flavor and nice medium hop presence. Creamy mouthfeel. Easily drinkable, but nothing to recommend to anyone except maybe the greenest of novices. Tastes like a very good beer that died in the can about the same time that it was crossing the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Well brewed with a nice head and a good balance. Rich in flavor, pleasing to body and soul. Could be a bit more bitter; that would make it perfect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice looking amber ale. A bit sweet on the nose. Feels quite heavy in the mouth, with a combination of fruit and malty caramel. Tastes stronger than 5%. Satisfying and quite solid.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2006 Very nice ale. Deep amber red colour with good and lasting head. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of toffee and a light citric hoppyness. Nice hoppy bitter flavor on a sweet malty background.

Wonderful when in cask, one of the better nitro-can beers as well. Slightly hoppy, with a pretty mild bitter taste. Lovely english ale - Greene King - get this in Canada now, importing and holidays are too expensive!!
