KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 13, 2009
Served ice cold at Old Trafford, Manchester. Hazy brown with llots of bubbles and artificial-looking head. Hardly any flavour, watery and uninteresting. I did not finish my glass of this!

McWorta (1601) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 27, 2009
Floral maltand light barnyard yeast aroma. A full yellow colour. Cream like header and easy flowing. Medium-strong bitter and a ssplash of sourness. Medium body, creamy a bit slick texture . bitter finish. The cream of manchester, here we go. But brewed in Luton... On tap and decently poured a pint for an afternoon.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Can in Knightsbridge (slumming, surely.) Golden body with pop-up head. Sweet and malty nose. Flavour a bit bitter. Creamy and smooth texture. Hoppy finish.

MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2008
(50cl can with 44cl content) Clear, light-amber colour with a creamy white layer. Slightly sweet and toasted malty nose with subtle fruity notes. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied with a flat nitro mf. Pretty one-dimensional malt-accented taste with a faint fruity touch; dry and slightly bitter hoppy finish with a tinge of lemon. Not that bad, just a bit plain (27.X.08).

emmakingafc (6) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2008 does not count
Not to be confused with the widget.. this beer is a smooth yet clean beer with a strong hop but low alcohol by English Standards

wheresthepath (2264) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2008
[Nitrokeg at the LV Lounge, George Hotel, Reading] c5 Pours a dark, dirty gold with a moderate, lasting creamy white head. There is a slight carbonation, and the mouthfeel is a lot less smooth than other nitro/smooth ales. Initial taste is metallic, but eventually some sweet malt comes through, with a sort of rough-and-ready flavour that feels slight more genuine than your average macro ale. Overall impression is a beer that is weak, watery and metallic. Worse than I remember.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2008
Beautiful looking beer once the nitro storm in the glass has died down after pouring from the can. Copper colour with no sign of carbonation but a thick white head with excelllent retention that leaves lashings of lacing. Aroma is gently sweet and vaguely hoppy. Palate is creamy yet watery. Flavour is pretty one dimensional and flat, with a weakly bitter edge. OK, but after finishing one Im hardly dying for another.
