16 oz can poured into a nonic pint glass. I had to salvage this one after it fell and sprung a leak - we’ll see how it’s held up...
A: Pours a orange copper color with moderate clarity. The head is a one finger heavy cream shade. In true nitro-can fashion, it retains beautifully with a wondrous texture.
S: Not as muted as I come to expect from the serving style. There are lots of dark fruits, some lighter fruits, chocolate, caramel, cream, and even a touch of hops.
T: The flavor profile introduces both a smoky and even a leathery dimension to things. The mustiness works pretty well with its fruity, caramel-laden flavor profile. A hint of leafy, herbal hops really finish things well. Surprisingly, it even has a bit of depth to it.
M: A bit on the watery side, as expected. Despite that, there’s a good mixture of creaminess and crisp, palate-clearing dryness. The lack of carbonation fits the mouthfeel qualities well.
O: This would make a good everyday drinker. It’s definitely the most interesting nitro-can beer I’ve ever had before. I wouldn’t touch the bottles, however.
Clear amber coloured, the foam very quickly disappears, malty, nutty aroma with roasted notes; flavor reminiscent of caramel. Tastes sweet with light bitter notes. Decent ale. Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - NOV 12, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 Bottle. Copper/mahagony with a small head. Aroma of malts, caramel, a tiny hint of citrus fruits and metal. Taste is malts, caramel, nuts, biscuit and bread. Fruity hops in the aftertaste which almost feels boozy. Medium carbonation. Nice. kryspin3 (155) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Bursztynowe, klarowne, piana średnio obfita, drobne i średnie pęcherzyki, dość szybko się redukuje.
W aromacie trochę skunks, karmel, toffi, słód, cukier, niezbyt mocny, ale wyraźnie ziołowy aromat, takie oregano. Trochę skórki od chleba.
W smaku słodowe - nieco ciasteczkowe, nieco chlebowe, nieco przypieczonej skórki od chleba, nieco nawet orzechowe, nieco coli. Poza tym trochę karmelu, odrobina owocowych estrów. Słodkawe. Na finiszu lekki posmak chmielowy, bardziej ziemisty no i skunksowy. Goryczka bardzo niska. Raczej pełne. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego. zoltomar (1) - - OCT 27, 2017 does not count
Recommended to me by a friend living in Scotland. This probably doesn’t taste like the ale served in Scotland, but what we get is still great. A real workhorse of an ale that I could drink often and not tire of. No gimmicks, just a great tasting ale.

330ml bottle. Copper colour with a white foam head leaving lacing. Dried fruits and caramel aroma. Taste is malty, bready, toffee, sweetish, with a blackcurrant hop note and some bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi-dry tangy bitter finish. Quite OK. Svarun (172) - - SEP 17, 2017

The aromatic skunk of a clear bottle, some earthy and caramel malts too. Pours a light amber, decent ivory colored head. Nice effervescence, caramel, roots, earth, an enjoyable sweetness. I could see a draft version being significantly better. bonev (967) - POLAND - SEP 9, 2017
Piwo klarowne w kolorze brazowo - rubinowym nalewa sie z niezbyt trwala sredniopecherzykowa piana tworzac cienka warstwe. Aromat karmelowy, smakuje troche jak cola z podobnym wysyceniem i niska goryczka. Wodniste i slodkie. SinH4 (6257) - Garching b. Mï¿½nchen, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2017
