Nitro tallboy. Clear dark gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is malt, bread and something metal. Yikes, metal prominent in the taste as well. Body is light, but creamy. I don’t love the flavor, but see how you could drink a bunch of these if you really wanted to.

I had this from tap at a pub in england. As far as I can remember, it was not the best beer I have had.

sudomorph (908) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2015
Draft at the Millennium Hotel Glasgow. Pours a clear caramel/brass with a half finger of creamy head that coats the glass. Aroma has nice notes of caramel, fruity esters, toffee, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Slight caramel and toffee but a bit too many bittering hops.medium body with a low carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a mildly dry finish. Overall. Kinda average. Aroma is inviting but the taste is a bit underwhelming.

Extra Smooth/Nitrogen version. Aroma: Almost not aroma, only a little metal from nitrogenation. Appearance: orange/brown. Taste: medium to strong bitter. Palate: thick and strong metal aftertaste.

Boks. Extra smooth. Karamellfarget. Lite karbonert. Kremet skum. Mye pga nitrogenkapselen vil jeg tro. Smaker vann,malt og gress. Kjedelig

Extra Smooth. Some decent depth of toasty flavour but disappointingly watery and so lacks body as a result.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2015
The "Extra Cold" version. Pours a finger of head of dark straw body. The aroma is, well, nothing. The taste is balanced, almost nothing. The texture is smooth. Easy to drink, like water but smoother.

schön kupferfarbig klar mit sahnigem Schaum. Aromen von Röstmalz, leichter Hopfengeschmack, etwas wässrig . Recht weich und süffig.
