Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2013
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.

Zaphod13 (41) - Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Nitro can. Very mild, easy drinking ale. Not bitter or hoppy, a little sweetness in the finish. Somewhat bland and not memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2013
Bernstein mit feiner Crema aus der Nitro-Dose. Cremiger Körper, sehr sanft. Geschmacklich dünn nach Fudge-Weichkaramellen mit wenig Hopfen. Süffig allemal.

douglas88 (5787) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Can. Pours a nice cascading copper hue with a large nitro head. A sweet dusty aroma. A nice ESB with floral hops, sweet marmalade, some earthy caramel malts. Easygoing.

tgncc (2740) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2013
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.

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.
