UPDATED: JAN 29, 2015 14.9 oz. nitro can. Pours a dark red color with quickly dissipating creamy head, a bit of which stays to the end. Very faint grain and malt aroma. Flavor is light caramel, nuts, milky-smooth and pleasantly malty. Medium body with low carbonation leads to a silky and creamy mouth feel that continues into a velvety finish. Light, enjoyable and super drinkable. Love the low ABV.

440ml can into pint glass. Nitrogen widget goes off! Very slight sweet aroma. Good solid cream head on still red/amber beer. Taste is slightly bitter. Gentle smoky malt finish. Very sessionable.

Nitrogen can. Red amber color with a typical creamy nitrogen head. Aroma is either very faint or hidden by the nitrogen head but I had a hard time picking up more than faint grain and malt. Flavor is cereal malt up front and light herbal hops. Light to medium bodied with a slippery, almost watery mouthfeel. Finishes up with a creamy finish. Not the top of it’s class but I would definitely take another one.

Pint. Settles into a dark reddish colour with a thick creamy head. The texture is creamy and the flavour has some slight roasted malt. It is a little watery but pleasant and smooth

Yet another almost flavorless, flat feeling, thin and watery example of why the nitro ball is a bad idea. This one looks really cool when poured into a glass but that is about it. Cream colored brew with thick creamy head. Aroma and taste are about like a cream soda. Not much carbonation feel and is thin and watery. So it’s about like drinking a cream soda that sat overnight on ice and is now flat and watered down.

Not too good. The nitro gives it a creamy head but little else. There is barely any aroma or flavor. The feel is very watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piw (178) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015
Frisch gezapft. Klar und bernsteinfarben mit einer schönen weißen Schaumkrone. Geschmacklich allerdings mehr an ein Lager erinnernd als an Ale.

Pours a clear copper red. The same thick frothy white head as Guinness but it forms quicker. Corny, yeasty, and watery aroma. Taste is smooth but there is not much to it. Tastes lagerish. Eh.

Had it from a winter sampler pack from the draught can. Pretty frothy head, a little sweet and not really very much roasted malt coming through.
