Nice enough beer if you want a nice drink at home without breaking the bank. Quite smooth and drinkable without being special

The name is hilarious enough. It sounds like a laxative. The side of the can says "... pull the tab, listen to the surge." And surge it did. When I pulled the tab, I was treated to an angry growl, probably the most shocking thing that a beer can has ever done to me. I didn’t know whether to pour the beer or back away slowly. When I finally did pour the beer, I found only disappointment. Brown color with a thin head. Flavor of dirty water. Just a terrible beer. How dare the British make fun of American beer, when crap like this is produced in their country?

Overall a very standard canned beer. You really do taste the aluminium if your drinking from the can witch kills most of the flavour

euniceradio (102) - Colton, California, USA - APR 3, 2015
Smooth flow can. Fun gurgling sound when opening. Pours clear dark amber. Head is thick soft with excellent lacing. Aroma of spice and banana bread. Mouthfeel is really thin and watery. Taste is watered down with notes of banana bread and clove-like spices. Disappointed with lack of flavors, yet quite drinkable. The hoppy flavors they’re refering to in their description are not bitter but ONLY adding spice and slight floral. Interesting for a change.

mabuzzer (244) - SCOTLAND - APR 3, 2015
Smooth flow can. Pours copper coloured with a very thick, creamy head courtesy of the nitro. Sweet aroma, maybe a hint of banana. Balanced flavour with no extremes of anything. Average, bit perfectly drinkable

slowrunner77 (6742) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 21, 2015
nitro can. pretty standard across the board, perhaps a little less. too watered down for my taste - not enough going on to make the nitro pour more than pretty hop flavored water. Earthy. dry, thin.

simonblaine (385) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours copper with a marvelously thick soft head. Aroma of malts, taste is malty, bananna, maybe a bit of citrusy stuff. Not much else really, it is a bit thin, but the experience of opening the can and hearing the noise it makes, pouring it and getting that top lip deep in the head makes it worth it.

NallePalle (217) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2015
Can, 440 ml. Nice, smooth ale. Great taste, gentle, moderate finish. A true UK bitter.

4-pack of tall boys shared and crushed during disc golf. Malty and creamy amber lager flavor with soft carbonation. Nothing to write home about.

Poured straight from Can, reviewed 8.12.14. No great taste and too much carbonation for me . Sharp on tongue.
