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.

Copenhagen 5/8 2014. Pours pure foam which translates to dark amber beer with a creamy head. Not much aroma. Curious mouthfeel due to almost no carbonation. But pleasant silky feel. Malty taste which stay for a while. Nice sweetness without being too much. Nice in a creamy no carbonation way.

This beer pretty much solidified my dislike of nitro beers other than dark stuff. Copper pour, perfect white flat head. Aroma of water and nothing. Taste or water and light metal. Thin.

Pours a clear copper with a thick and dense creamy white head that leaves awesome lacing. Pouring the whole can in one straight bottom up fashion is quite a satisfying show, too. Nose is of caramel and fruits along with a slightly toasted component. Taste of caramel and slight roasted malt, simple but effective. Body is light and carbonation fine and moderate. Mouthfeel is slightly watery but for a session beer itís fine. Overall a good macro option, I shall be back.

From a nitro can in the Amazing Ales mix pack. Pours a clear rich amber with a persistent half inch of nitro head, looks glorious, taking me back to the days when I drank this in the Irish pubs of Birmingham. The aroma is faintly grassy with some light brown sugar notes to it. Taste is light toffee with a soft hop bite in the background, nothing challenging. The only real problem with this beer, other than the nitro (dear guy why does nitro exist?), is the thinness of the body, itís near watery. A tad more body and it would actually be a very good beer as opposed to just an inoffensive one. Ah well.

Caramel pour with a beige head. Aroma is light malt. Taste is creamy, light flavor, light malt. Its wet at least.

Ragnampiza (620) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - FEB 22, 2015
250 ml on tap. Light amber, perfectly clear, with a small, creamy and persistent bright white head. On the nose toasted malts, caramel/toffee, a hint of red fruits. Quite musty overall. Very mild bitterness upfront, bigger sweetness as following and even bigger astringency in the aftertaste. Taste comprises toffee, strangely booze and a hint of sea salt in the background. Rather poor drinkability considering the light ABV. Average carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Ehh, no thanks. Should have gone for a Guinness tick!

Draught @ Downtown, Manamah. Well what can you say... It isnít bad I guess, but very middle of the road with itís sweetness, sour hint (can be the pipes), flat and even bit watery. Meh...
