3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: from (nitro) tap at Mick Kellyís Irish Pub.
Aroma: could not detect any.
Appearance: average-sized, creamy, white, initial head with excellent lacing and mostly lasting longevity. Clear, flat, dark-amber body.
Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lightly acidic finish with short duration.
Palate: light body, watery texture and no carbonation.
Overall: excellent appearance and palate, but lacking in aroma and taste. Still, I like this beer.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
