440ml Nitro Can from SuperValu (Ireland - Ł1.69):
Bland malts and a little sweetness from some brown sugar, there is a very faint and almost water like smell with some bitterness at the end.
Thick and quite creamy too before settling to a dark caramel brown colour with a very creamy, darkish white head on top that is about the width of a pinky and holds very well.
Bland with some malts and light caramel flavours and a sugary sweetness following this. There is a burnt toast and nutty flavour. The beer is quite bitter and very creamy.
Creamy with a medium to full body yet it still feels slightly watery. The beer seems quite bland and there is almost no carbonation with some small amounts of bitterness at the end.

Great looking beer when poured and settled but everything else about it was fairly average sadly. The aroma was bland and unexciting, definitely not an ale worth looking out for. I’m not sure if it would be better on draft and I’m not sure if I really want to find out either.It was drinkable and the nitro can was a plus.

Vörösréz, borostyánbarna. Nyomokban pörkölt, kevés karamell, maláta, mérsékelten keserű. Korrekt, harmonikus. Finom, de nem kiemelkedő aroma.

Ikke nogen særlig god oplevelse. Heller ikke dårlig - men troede måske den havde mere karakter. Meget let krydret pilsner...

rayaron (538) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - APR 18, 2015
Draught at Porter & Sons, Tel Aviv. Clear copper with small creamy off-white head. Light aroma of caramel, some fruitiness with hints of milk chocolate and butterscotch. Flavor of fruity hops, some graininess with hint of caramel and butterscotch. Soft carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Quite easy and fun to drink.

Pounder Nitro can picked as part of the Guinness Winter 8-pack. Pours clear amber with creamy tannish head. English yeasty fruitiness with good dark toast. Okay... Just not my cup of tea.

One of the best beers in the category ’drinking beer and nothing more than that’. An Irish classic

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.
