COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nitro Keg Ale and Canned Widget Ale. An export strength beer brewed specifically for countries outside the UK. It has the same smooth and creamy characteristics as Tetley’s Smoothflow and incorporates a full drinking flavour. It is well balanced with a complex range of malty and hoppy notes, enhanced by a fruity aroma. Like Tetley’s Smoothflow, it is served at 8°C to give extra refreshment.

On tap at Global Brew. Thin white nitro head and pale hazy golden color A muted aroma of grass and yeast. Taste is sweet pale malt along with a slight smokiness and a sour hoppiness. Not a whole lot going on here, but pretty good nonetheless.

redpooba (401) - New York, USA - JAN 25, 2013
A golden amber with a frothy-creamy white head. The widget helps this beer come smooth and milky, the best part is watching the beer settle. The flavor is buttery and smooth with a malts on the front. The finish is .... well absent. But overall a decent cheap beer.

AirForceHops (3508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 31, 2012
14.9 oz. widget can from The Beer Store for $2.25. Cascading carbonation leaves a dense, thick 1 inch foamy head. Color is clear amber. Nose is a light malt. You cannot find anything offensive about the palate on this beer. Simply because it tastes like a creamy water with some malt splashed in. When the brew hit room temperature I got a very faint English hop. Light nutty notes shows up too. Texture is creamy. Well… if nothing else, it sure is easy to drink!

dexcansino (468) - Andalucía, SPAIN - DEC 5, 2012
Cerveza rojiza. Con espuma cremosa que se mantiene hasta el final. Olor a fruta tropical, como piña o mango. Sabor suave y poco carbonatada. Está bien como comienzo.

I like this beer. It’s a little lighter than my usual choices, but I can’t drink the same heavy beers all the time. When I like a change, Tetley’s is a good choice. Plus I don’t have to hunt around to find it like a lot of my favorites. This is available at my local grocery store.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Pint can. Poured clear copper with a well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and toasted grains with accents of grass and light lemony detergent. The flavor found honey and light toffee at the core, with touches of lemon and dry oak around.. finished slick and very dry with light bitterness. Light-bodied and slick as mentioned on the palate.. just an ok feel.
