This functions more like a cream ale (thanks to the absurdly powerful, widget induced head) and is best utilized as an alternative to bland macro-beers, which are likely to overpower the selection where you found this can. If a better selection is present, by all means indulge.

Medium amber body and creamy white head. Light caramel and malt aroma with a little hops. Sweet flavor and a little bitter in the finish, but a very little. Average beer, but drinkable.

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 it’s 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

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.

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. It’s very bland and I wouldn’t go back for another one.

Borup (14698) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Can. Amber colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops and some fruit. Creamy and watery.
