2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nitro can. Coppery brown color with the usual thick, creamy nitro head. Nose is light malt and grain with a trace of bitterness. Taste of faint malt with a light bitter finish. Itís all right, nothing spectacular but not awful either.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 [can - 440 ml] Clear copper. Lots of bubbles and a fizzy tan head. Very light amount of malts in the nose with a sour bitterness as well. Dry malty flavor with a bitterness at the end and a watery and metallic taste. Maybe this would be better on draft? Iíll have to maybe give it another try, but I donít think Iím that big a fan.

itís alright, i wouldnt buy it but if someone gives you one it aint so bad, the extra smooth one is nicer cos its smoother, just a bit like boddingtons really.

44 cl can. No yeast in bottom.Reddish brown colour with a creamy head. Malty nose, not much. Notes of caramel and malt in the flavour without much bitterness. Very common indeed.

Canned draught version. Similar to Velvet & Boddingtons, but with a touch more malt on the palate, still poor thoí

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Draught. At Pub Italia, Ottawa. Poured slightly hazy amber-copper with a typical lasting white draught head. Aroma malty, nutty, hint of caramel and pehaps hops. Taste is a typical macro bitter - not really fresh enough, but malty enough to hide the hint of adjuncts I was picking up, pretty thin but creamy mouthfeel. Wouldnít bother ordering this in the UK, but for an Ontario pub itís a beacon of welcome amidst all the InBev crap we usually see.

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.
