Nitro can... This beer isnít good and isnít bad. If you like low gravity, nondescript Irish ales and/or English milds, this beer may be for you. Not my thing.

<Draft. Red-coloured, small nitro head. Roastmalty taste, pretty dry finish. Not complex in any way, but drinkable.

Had this one on tap once at a local bar by accident after my buddy ordered the wrong brew. Great dark red colour with creamy white head that last the whole mug. Tastes a bit like coffee. This isnít my kind of beer but it was decent Iíd say

I enjoy this beer on a regular basis, very creamy, aromatic and lusty. Golden in color, nice head. If you have not tried it, do so! :)

Intense and solid. Optimal aroma and palate. Adherent foam and of good persistence. It is made to feel in the nose.

ALLOVATE (2551) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Tasted on Draught, as the can also disappoints. Slight malt aroma, brilliant to look at, with a rich creamy off-white head and a clear, deep copper body. Taste was tainted, almost like dish-rinsing water. I could not get past this dank flavour, awash in its watery thin body, as much as I tried and it over-ran the light toasted malt and burnt sugar flavours. From the original Smithwickís, to this nasty export version, another mass corporate stuff up!

Widget Can. Orange colored with big thick and beige lasting head. Mild aroma, some sweetness and soft cream comes up. Somehow watery palate with thin to medium body. Roasted flavor with mildly biting hops, very soft mouthfeel. Not very characteristic taste, soft mouthfeel is excellent.
