On tap in Winchester, UK. Reddish color. Creamy head a bit like a Guinness. Suprisingly hoppy and bitter. Some flowers also. Nice and good.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Very similar to Boddingtonís in texture, and appearance. Nice dark body, smooth nitrogen head. No aroma evident. Good taste, light hops dominated by the malts, light fruit accents. Smooth and cool ending thatís typical for a nitrogen beer.

Smooth is a good word for it. Watery works too. Lightest bitter iíve ever had. A touch of hops, but i was expecting more

SHIG (4385) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Brown in color with white thick head. Bitter malt smell that led to a bitter copper dry taste.

Smooth, easy drinking beer that is underrated in my opnion. Itís not something Iíd seek out, but if it was there on tap, Iíd have no hesitation in indulging.

Tranquillity (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2006
500ml bottle. Pours light mocca, settles deep mahogany brown with a big, stable, mocca-ice cream head. Coffee aroma, not too strong. Quite dry taste of... malt? No finish to mention.

Can. Little aroma - light malt. Dark tan color. Good ale malt flavor especially at room temperature - not near as good ice cold. Donít let this beer sit in cans too long - takes on a strong metallic flavor quickly. Otherwise not a bad choice if thereís not much else.

"Extra Smooth" is about all you need to say about this beer. Perhaps in making it so smooth, they forgot to add any interesting flavor. Nevertheless, it was enjoyable because of the smoothness. The head was very good, it lasted all the way down. Better than some, but by no means outstanding.

Draft. This is a fairly lifeless beer. Nut brown in appearance with a dense head. Not a lot of aroma, but whatís there hints at sweetness. Not much flavor ó perhaps some nuts. There is a slightly bitter aftertaste to the soft mouthfeel.

Can @ Hot Stuff, an excellent Indian Place in London. Clear light brown with a fluffy white head. Slightly sour malt aroma. Thin and metallic in flavor with a bit of bitterness, some sweetness and a hint of toasted caramel. Reminds me of the cheap ales of New Zealand like DB Double Brown.
