Got the beer for free when I ordered two beers at random and asked which was which. As he responded ’this one is the Nitro" I laughed at myself and admitted that it was a stupid question. Smooth and quiet. The nitro neuters the beer and makes it less of what it could be. Of course it is better than a Guinness but the nitro seems to lower beers to a common denominator, or if you spell it wrong a DEMONator which would be a good beer name. Nice nose trying to come through..
