Tinned, widget thingy, pasteurised. Brown beer with nitrogen flush through, cream false head. Watery thin tasteless beer except for a sharp tinnt background. Pitiful.

Our biggest slug slayer to date, though a very nasty drink. Why would they think this was a good idea? Reputation shot for me.

WoW. Goes from a thick cloudy beige colour, to a deep nice golden colour with a thick creamy off white head. Fruity and a mild caramel malt aroma. Creamy texture. A bit light body. Fruity and caramel malt in the flavour.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.44l can. My god! This is a crazy pour! Milky white from the can, when it settles I see a clear beautiful warming-amber body with a big fantastic creamy head. This took me by surprise, and it looks really nice! The aroma is more subtle with some thin caramel sweetness and hints of zesty fruits. It’s as near as flat on the carbonation and it has a thin oily body. Flavors are, just like the mouthfeel, typical Guinness light roasted. Also, some thin watery caramel blended with both ripe zest, a mild nutty bitterness and not really much more. A bit dull in flavor, but shockingly beautiful in the looks. 28.07.2012

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
440ml can, as pictured. Widget-"driven" can pours a huge, monstrously creamy off-white head with good retention. Clear, nutty brown colour. Rather fain aroma of malt and caramel. No carbonation (left), very smooth, but essentially thin, mouth feel. Taste is very similar to Boddington’s and John Smith Extra Smooth, but a bit more characterfully maltish, with some caramel here, too. Mildly bitter finish and faint, but lingering malty after taste. Not bad at all. Sessionable, straightforward - just don’t expect much complexity here. Should not be drunk at too low a temperature.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Malty aroma. Mahogany, large off-white head. Flavour is malty with caramel. Very watery. Finishes bitter with slight sweetish note. Would decidedly be better if it had more body to it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at home. Reddish colour. Carbonated with fast-receding head. Bitter, definitely; with distinctive Guinness flavour. Nutty flavour. Quite smooth and surprisingly good for a canned beer.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Rubbish, a terrible idea. Guinness is overrated anyway, but pleasant enough. This is just a Boddies, John Smiths style bland tasteless dishwater in a can. Id suggests that the Americans on here who like this try a real ale from Britain rather than this filth
