Smoothflow, Nitrokeg. Light amber with extensive Nitrogen bubbles and big head. Tinny gassy product, soapy and pretty awful.

More intriguing than good, really. Very still, with an amazing creamy, thick, and long-lasting head. The head lasts all the way to the bottom of the pint. Taste is nothing special, with the most prominant taste of bitter.

ALLOVATE’s review pretty much says it all. This beer is really not that good at all. It is very thin with minimal hop flavor and aroma as it warms closer to true cellar temp(55F). The color is a very nice copper/gold. I do like some beers smooth flow, but I think that the brewer needs to up the hops and malt content to make this beer more palatable. British ales are losing much ground to light Euro lagers all over GB. Hopefully CAMRA will find some way to pull a few Real Ale drinkers back to their side of the bar.

SMOOTH is the key word here. Small frothy head, tempting color, there is aroma enough to make you think of those good bitters you had a while ago but this one doesn’t give much. Some hops, some bitterness, but most of all: S M O O T H...

not much of a bitter. Rather smooth and not as much of a bite as i was expecting (or hoping for). Still, can’t complain that much

Hey, it’s not the greatest bitter, but drinkable and a lot better than some of the other reviews give it credit for.

This beer gives me good memories of sneaking a few pints into the lawn at Wimbleton to watch Henmin and Rafter play. Nothing particuarily special about this brew, but nothing offensive either. Bitter hops, nice malt. Liked the nitro can.

Not too shabby, a nice beer to introduce to America and we are gladit’s here. A little different than Boddington’s or Guinness.

A below average beer with nothing really to recommend it. I’d rather not bother. Bland, weak and no character. Looks the part, but that’s about it.

The official beer of English rugby, if I’m not mistaken. Um, just short of decent, a weird very bitter taste. Slightly crisp. Not something I’d prefer.
