440ml can from the back of the fridge. 130412. Pours a clear caramel with a one finger, white head that lasts forever. Aroma has smooth notes of caramel, bread, cereal grains, and traditional mild hops. Taste is balanced but probably faded. Hints of grain, caramel, and faint hops. Low-medium body with a low, nitro can carbonation. Clean and a bit watery in the mouth. Overall, considering I don?t know how long it has been in the fridge, not bad. Mild caramel and grains.

tbonde (112) - DENMARK - MAR 27, 2015
Draught@Oslo airport bar. Pours a lovely clear dark amber with a finger of thick, creamy head. Very slight aroma of malt and winegum. Low to no carbonation. The head is all this beer has as I tried to find some kind of tast in the watery texture. A little bit of sweetness and hardly any taste of neither malt nor hops. Havenít had this beer for years and now I remember why. For poseurs who want to be seen drinking beer but actually donít like malt and hops.

anstei (194) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 17, 2015
On tap. Pours brown with a head that only slowly gets to the surface. Very sticky. Gives a creamy texture to the beer. Taste is watered down, almost nothing left. Bitter. Disappointing.

14.9 oz can from the Guinness Amazing Ales variety pack, can says nothing about being a draught can with a widget ball, but surprised it actually does, cool- Pours food coloring dark orange with a beautiful lava like appearance similar to Guinness and a thick frothy creamy dense head, the only downfall is the ugly color of the beer. Aroma is pretty muted, getting generic malt and some caramel. The taste is smooth and creamy as hell, light caramel malts, roasted grains, toffee, very surprised by this one, i could down more than a few of these! Body is medium, carbonation is light but not overly so, creamy. Impressed, the draught no doubt has improved this beer, i seriously doubt the regular bottle would get this good of a score from me, easily the best of the pack including the Guinness draught. The beginning of the beer was definitely worth the 3.7 i gave it, but as it sat in the glass, it didnít hold up, still not bad, but the overall i will downgrade one point, canít see giving anything else lower, though 3.6 still seems high.

25.4.2014. Amber colour, thick lasting white head. Creamy, low carbonated palate. Flavour is malty, a bit dry, creamy, a bit caramel, rather light.

It has distinctive nitro texture (widget in can) but is pretty low on flavour. Itís watery with a little bitterness and creamy mouthfeel. I can think of many, many beers I would drink in preference to this one.
