Smooth is right. So low alcohol, can't taste the beer in here. Creamy, yet goes down easy. A real thirst quencher ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @Harvester, Bristol. Medium white creamy head, dark amber colour, nice lacing. Toffee aroma with a hint of nuts. Light body, average carbonation. Alright, but no excitement.

Block (2073) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2016
For what it’s worth, one of the better beers I had in London. Very smooth, the nitrogen does this beer well. Decently balanced. It’s good and a very fitting beer.

de nouveau une bière qui ne goute pas grand chose et qui ne sert qu’a nous raffraîchir après une journée à marcher...

From 500ml can. Pours clear dark straw with perfectly beautiful creamy nitrogen head. Doesn’t smell of much, no bitterness or hop characteristic, just a subtle caramel malt taste. Easy drinking, silky smooth

On draught. The sort of beer I buy when I find myself in a place with limited selection. But it isn’t great. Thin, very watery. A bland session bitter.
