2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
440 ml nitro can at home, as Extra Smooth, with ABV at 3.6%, poured into a Guinness glass.
Amber colour on a clear and transparent body, head almost two fingers tall, thick and creamy, with great retention, leaving light lacing as it slowly collapses.
Aroma of toffee, light caramel, notes of milky chocolate and coffee.
Taste unfortunately is not on par, some toffee and chocolate, coffee but much less than the aroma leads to believe, malts, light metallic notes.
Thin watery body, low carbonation.
Overall this one begins well, good looking beer, smells good but itís all downhill from there.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Immediate maltiness on the nose. Medium carbonation, smooth, medium texture. Dark caramel aroma, sweet fruits and a little citrus, which provide some bitterness. Sweet malts linger to the end. A well-balanced beer, but nothing extraordinary!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Extra smooth can. Pours amber with a thick creamy off-white head. Very sustainable from the widget. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasty malt, orange notes. Taste is hops, bitterness, touch of citrus and roasted malt. Fairly sweet. My partners dads drink of choice so I end up drinking a lot of this. Itís fairly bland.

Bland. Slight brown color. No body. $2.99/4 on close out , but not worth it!

16oz can at brunch in a DC restaurant. Widget nitro pour, lots of small nitrogen bubbles, creamy tan head. Aroma was light toasted malt, sweet notes. Light toasty malt sweetness. Easy drinking, but thatís about it. Was hoping for a whole lot more with this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma: mostly cheery-ish fruit. Flavor is also pretty light; Sweet, biscuit malt, the fruity character, herbal hops, and some mild bitterness.
"Nitro" can--the green Extra Smooth one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I can easily drink a few pints of John Smiths at a sitting without regrets; very smooth and with a thick and persistent head, not too high in alcohol, a good compromise between Draught Guinness and a pub Bitter

Its a bitter. Its commercialized, its more drinkable than lager... Out of a can, decent foamy white head, copper colored, not much flavor.
