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.

Pale honey colour, with a white head that lasts. Sweet, malty, refreshing taste. Not too bad, not what I expected.

Can. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate pillowy tan head on there. Nose is dry and earthy, with some grains, but not much interesting to me. Taste is light and smooth, very slightly bitter, and an earthiness that makes think of wallowing in dirt.

Koskela (409) - Marysville, California, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Very tipical english beer aroma with notes of grain and toffee it pours with a great head as it cascadrs into a clear copper color and a head about 1/2 inch. Mmouthfeel is velvety with a medium body, very smooth as the sweet malts mesh together with the bitterness from the hops. Overall a good typical english brew

Pours amber, massive frothy head. So smooth, a bit watery, it is a fantastic feeling beer to drink. Velvety. Taste of grains, yeast. Just a bit too watery for my taste
