Nito or Can this is lame. A shaving foam head . Tastes of h20 and stale caramel . Widgets are for lame-arses.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2009 440ml can, as shown. This is one of those cans (like Guiness Draught) that comes with a plastic ball inside to keep the texture smooth, mellow. And it works: Poured into the glass its all foam first, then after it settles produces a small, but creamy and persistent head, and the carbonation is almost non-existent (despite the crafty phhhfffft it made when opening the can). This really feels like an on-tap beer. On the downside, there is almost no aroma (faint citrus and malt), the taste is rather bland, too. A little hop, a little malt, and a smooth, not-very-bitter-ish finish. Drinks very quickly, should be an easy-going on tap pint at your local pub. But very simple, and very plain.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2009 Pours blonde and creamy, nothing much in the aroma. Taste is midly bitter, creamy and watery, lacking in anything else. Not very good.

The can probably tastes better than the beer in it. Like bland, tasteless shaving foam; not unpleasant but offers no obvious reason to drink it. No real characteristics. The cask version is much superior.

This is a Nostalgic beer for me, good times good memories in New York , the Nitro head , decent aroma, and a HIGH Drink-ability, if you drink it slow and let it warm up a little as you drink you get a decent ale to drink

rosenbergh (11400) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
440 ml can. 3.5%. From England. Clear amber colour with thick white creamy head. Looks great when poured to pint. Weak caramel and malt aroma with notes of hops and maybe some fruits. And same goes with the flavour. Not so much hops in flavour. Very creamy but also watery. Not the best for my 500th rating. But at least decent. Could get another one in near future.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2009
Can. Pours yellow with a creamy white head. The aroma is, well, nothing really. Very light malt and caramel. The flavour is malt, caramel and some hops. Light bitterness in the finish. Its very bland and I wouldnt go back for another one.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2009
440ml can, 3.5% abv, shared on the train to Euston, London. Nitro, creamy head over a copper-like body. Very weak on aroma, some sweet malts. Sweet flavoured water with a few notes of roastiness and a very discreet bitter end. Nonoffensive, but has got very little to offer (05.05.2009).
