3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
440ml nitro can into a pint glass.
Pours a rich clear copper with a cascading tan had that settles into a two finger cap. Really good lacing and head retention.
Aroma has a definite metallic twang but otherwise is pretty light. Some pear and caramel but nothing really sticks out too prominently.
The taste is quite nice. Caramel and bready grain along with pears and some peaches. Caramel and toffee along with toast provides a light roasted character. Bitterness is sharp but pleasant although it comes close to being acrid. Finish is crisp and clean giving this beer tons of drinkability.
Overall, an average nitro English bitter. Not on the same level as Old Speckled Hen or Tetley’s but better than Boddington’s. At $7.99 a 4 pack, the price is alright and I can see myself picking this up again.

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. It’s fairly bland.

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 that’s about it. Was hoping for a whole lot more with this one.

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.

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.
