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.

An amber beer with a smooth fine head. It has next to no aroma. The flavor is soft, sligthtly sweet and fruity with an OK bitterness. A little light. A fine beer - but very standard.

Nitro Keg
Amber color; creamy head. Ordinary aroma; smooth taste, quite poor, just lightly malty-fruity. Unfortunately the final (strong bitterness) is paper-like and metallic.

Can. Off-white nitro-head on top of a golden body. Caramel aroma and flavor with some sour notes in the aroma. Medium body. A bit boring but not bad at all. Just didn’t inspire me. (060819)

Decent maltiness, but zero aroma and lifeless body, as is typical of widget beers.

rlgk (13387) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2004
Golden, with a great lasting offwhite head that is still in the glass after you finished the beer. Has a mild a somewhat yeasty aroma. Creamy flavor with some citrus and also some bread. Quite a mild finish.

argo0 (12124) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Looks like Tetley’s tea -- very cloudy dark-tea colored, with nice beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is grassy/earthy hoppy, and slightly malty. Tastewise, upfront is malty with some sweetness, and finishes with pleasant earthy bitterness. Creamy/smooth. Not a strong taste at any point, but nice nonetheless.

Tmoney99 (11915) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Can with widget. Dark amber color with an average creamy off-white head that diminished slowly. Light toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a creamy watery texture. Balanced light sweet bitter flavor and finish of short duration. Drinkable for a nitro can.

Keg, pasteurised. Brown with foamy head. Dead tasteless beer, awful nitrokeg with few redeeming features. Thank god it wasn't the can with a widget.
