Widget variety. Truly awful. No aroma as such, looks ok but with suspicious head rerention, bland taste with a nasty metallic finish. Never again.

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

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.
