Tap @ JB. You all know how this pours, that weird foamy thing, turning into a clear mahogany brown, with a clean, dense creamy white head. Aroma is pretty tame, with caramel, sweet malts, weak honey, slighty salty fruits, old and stale hops. Taste is slightly bitter, up front is some sweetness tho. Watery bodied, with a rather flat carbonation. Pretty dark meh to me, easy drinking tho.

14.9 oz widget can, thanks brenn79. Aroma is generic beer, grain, sweet malt. Appearance is typical widget can beauty, with cascading bubbles unfurling underneath a tight cap of bone-white foam, revealing a clear copper liquid after itís done working its magic. Taste is sweet, grainy. Carbonation is nearly nonexistent but the mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Other than the purty appearance, these uncarbonated widget cans are not for me.

Morboso (110) - ECUADOR - JUL 2, 2015
440ml cans with co2 activator. Lovely creamy low carbonation beer, perfect for cold day. Nice flavour but slightly watery and low alcohol content. Good price for a sixer but this beer could be better, less water to concentrate the flavour or more alcohol to make up for it just to be sure.

Without a doubt the finest foam I have ever come across. The foaming violently during pouring, but rapidly accumulating to a nice reddish ale with persistent white foam on top. The aroma is malty, albeit limited. It tastes fine of hops, malt and some fruit and have a sensible hoppy bitterness. I miss a little more fullness and bitterness with longer duration are also preferable. Otherwise, a good average ale can be used for virtually anything.

A classic Irish. Lovely appearance with its creamy head. Aroma of not much more than a pint in a pub, but smooth in his mild bitterness. Always welcome in an Irish pub!
