Very creamy as advertised. Pours almost milky, super fine foamy head and dark brown body. Tastes a bit hoppy and bitter. Creamy, somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Aroma is grainy, malty. Taste is bitter, roasted. Some hoppiness in the finish. I loved the silky smooth texture of this beer.

tillmac62 (313) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a clear medium amber with a dark ruby cast. Normal head, lacing and retention after the foamy rush of the nitro widget. Light nose of caramel with just a hint of earthy hops. As it warms, subtle buttery notes are evident. Light medium bodied with a very smooth texture that approaches creamy. Under carbonated with no effervescence. The flavor profile is reasonably intense, not complex and is poorly balanced. It begins with a non-sweet caramel note that is almost covered by grainy undertones. The middle is slightly bitter and has an earthy hop flavor that seems stale. The finish is slightly astringent and that stale hop flavor lingers. Stale hop flavor dominates this one, and not in a good way.

Poured from a can, San Diego. Brilliant nitro cascade, I love widgets! Finger head, intensely creamy and delicious and lasts throughout the drink. Weak aroma, sweet and maybe a bit fruity. Pleasant flavor of sweet malts, not too much going on and underpowered. A great session ale, nice to sit down and relax with.

"Also slightly bitter and slightly sweet (butterscotchish). Not quite as much Character as the Caffrey’s, but nice enough. I prefer too many sixers for $1.50 per to spend $3 on this again..."

Słodowy, lekko biszkoptowy zapach. Kolor bursztynowy, przejrzysty, piana beżowa, ładna i trwała. Pozostawia alkoholowy posmak. Ogólnie zgadzam się z człowiekwiadro :D

Bleki (88) - Gliwice, POLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Pours amber, with creamy, but not stable head. In nose malts, biscuits and iron. In taste medium sweet. Medium body, quite creamy texture, flat carbonation.

Mild smell that is malty, English ale taste, sort of bland beyond that, smooth though, all malt

mmahut (1260) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 14, 2014
Can. Pours in with an incredible lavage effect for a can. After a while the foam stabilizes into a creamy tan medium head with a golden bronze clear body. Aroma is malty, light caramel and toast, but very light indeed. Taste has medium malty character with light to medium earthy bitterness. Body is full, creamy and soft carbonation. Good enough.

czlowiekwiadro (279) - POLAND - OCT 31, 2014
zapach słodowy, lekko biszkoptowy z lekkim zapachem alkoholu i rdzy i mocną nutą ziołową. kolor bursztynowy, przejrzysty, piana beżowa, bardzo ładna i trwała, choć niezbyt obfita. w smaku półpełne, lekko jabłkowe z dość wysoką, ale szybko zanikającą goryczką o ziołowym charakterze. trochę przypomina lekko zleżałe piwo. zupełnie nienasycone, pozostawia lekko alkoholowy posmak.

Cerveja cremosa, rica, densa, cor âmbar, clara porém marcante, colarinho cremoso, branco, delicioso! Um clássica cerveja inglesa e ao mesmo tempo uma ótima inovação ! Amargor suave, doçura bem suave, cerveja extremamente equilibrada! Ótima drinkability!
