3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a tight finger of head on a fairly clear copper colored body. Looks great with the bubbles coming up right after the pour.
The aroma is a caramel barnyard smell.
The taste is okay. Smooth with mild bitterness and a touch of caramel.
The texture is soft with low carbonation.
Between the low ABV, smooth taste and low carbonation this beer is too easy to drink.

Nitro can. Very mild, easy drinking ale. Not bitter or hoppy, a little sweetness in the finish. Somewhat bland and not memorable.

Bernstein mit feiner Crema aus der Nitro-Dose. Cremiger Körper, sehr sanft. Geschmacklich dünn nach Fudge-Weichkaramellen mit wenig Hopfen. Süffig allemal.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fairly sweet aroma, bread, caramel, flowers. The flavor follows exactly, a little more subdued. The appearance: the beer erupted into the glass, billowing white head, swirling clouds, settling into a red/copper color, white head. Obviously a nitro widget at work. Light in body, a bit watery. (again, obviously a nitro widget at work). The finish is slightly bitter, tea leaves, obscure hops, again watery. Interesting. I picked this up to increase my experience with this style. But on its own merits, I didn’t love it.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a smooth bitter that has a small alcohol volume and is pretty creamy. No widget or any type of nitrous that i could find. Not particularly memorable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smootflow Widget can. Pours a dark copper color with a thick creamy head th at fades very slowly with ample lacing. Aroma is on the mild side with s ome caramel sweetness and bit of roasted malt. Taste follows the aroma being a bit bland with some caramel sweetness and bit of roasted malt. Mild bitterness with a fairly clean finish. Fairly light body, smooth and creamy. Decent balance but on the bland side. Decent beer for the style and quite sessionable.
