taunusmies (335) - FINLAND - MAY 11, 2007
(Bottle) Pours clear copper-brown colour with a small head. Mouthfeel is light but not thin, also a bit carbonated and bitterish. Aroma has some sweet malts with hoppy notes of flowers and caramel. Aftertaste has some butter and cream.

Nejhleader (1330) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2007
not a bad beer. nice and creamy, gotta love how the nitrogen just layers these kind of beers. ruby colour, bit of a sweet aroma, its creamy texture is probably its best quality.

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Draught. Pours a deep red with a nice tan, creamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, some toasted notes, and caramel. Not all the exciting. Mouth is very smooth with little carbonation feel. Flavor is much like the aroma. Toasted and sweet malt with some caramel. Good in a pinch, but nothing exciting.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2007
Pours a dark brownish amber with an amazingly creamy head and great lace. Slightly sour hop aroma, sweet malt. Tastes reasonably hoppy with a slight sour-cream touch - hops in the aftertaste. Creamy body but sadly, very poor carb from the tap. Nice beer, great cream ale.

ekstedt (5975) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2007
Draught at Göteborg City Airport. Reddish brown, clear, with a small, creamy and stable tan head. Slightly roasted malt aroma, quite bland. Creamy mouthfeel, but a little thin. Nice bitterness in the finish. A very much mediocre ale.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 21, 2007
440 ml can. Amber color with nice, creamy off-white head. Malt, caramel, thin body and a strange bitterness in the end. This is not my glass of beer.

Beer5000 (5052) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 21, 2007
440ml can. Clear, dark amber body with a big lasting beige head (nitrohead). Malt and caramel in aroma. Flavor is malt, caramel and an acidic bitterness. Medium body. This beer is a bit unbalanced between malty sweetness and sour bitterness, also to thin body for the slightly roasty metal impression.

AaronBouchard (150) - Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 20, 2007
From a can with a wiget inside. Poured a brown creamy color that later desolved into a thin creamy head. Dark color ale that tastes roasted with hints of nuts. An aquired taste for the avarage North American beer drinker. A rich taste but not as rich that I wont enjoy it.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 18, 2007
Tasted 18/04/2007. Nitro-keg pint at Lovelock’s, Wellington. Bland stale pale malt and caramel nose, a little brown sugar. In the mouth it’s more of the same and freezing cold! Teeth chattering and tongue numbing. Very lightly carbonated and puffed up with nitrogen. There’s something nasty about these nitrogen beers on the palate. It’s certainly worse than CO2. What a great session beer an irish red could be, and what a disappointing rendition this is. There’s very little wrong with it but there’s really nothing positive to say.

nitro can: This is definately the ’forgotten beer’ when in the mood for something darker with a frothy head. Pours a rich amber colour with a thick creamy head. The nose is of sweet malts. It tastes sweet on the palate and finishes with a light malty aftertaste. This one is very coiffable and I like that!
