Nice appearance and flavour is alright for a nitro keg. feels nice in the mouth which is the main thing for smiths, good session if theres only lager.

On tap at Pub Italia in Ottawa. Itís interesting to see the different ratings of this on tap and in the can, thereís quite a big difference between the two. I had it on tap which seems to be the way to go. Pours a clear orangey brown with a large lasting creamy white head. Good lacing. It looks great! The aroma and flavour of caramel malt and light hops are much too mild. Itís enjoyable -- Itís creamy, smooth and lightly bitter -- but itís just too light for me.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2005 Nitrokeg @ Big Cheese (Hungry Horse), Soton. (Jun 05) Thin with only noticeable flavour of husky grainy crystal malt. As it was served cold under nitrogen it deadened the unpleasantness although only slightly. (3 2 3 1 3)
Keg on the Exeter crawl - compared favourably to Tetleys but not quite up to the boddys. Quite similar to Tetleys although better balance and just boring rather than unpleasant. (3 2 3 2 3)

On tap at the King and Queen in Brighton, England. Not too much going on here. Little if any aroma and watery malt flavor. Unoffensive, but you could easily find something better.
