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

Bullit (4845) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Dark golden colour, medium white head. Aroma has fruity hops. Flavour has fruity hops and sweet malts. Some bitterness. Lots of carbonation. Average.

[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.

Very pleasant, creamy, nice ale. Also the only one to be easily found in France.

Draught. Clear deep golden with medium white creamy head. Sweet fruity aroma. Sweet fruity flavor.

ChrisTurner (209) - 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 I’m hardly dying for another.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Famous beer that has an undeserved good reputation. The beer is smooth on the mouth however it has a chemically induced nose with some cream and the taste is artificially sweet.

A Mes rate: Can that Morris forced down me on Christmas day..
Clean dark gold with a frothy white head and lots of lace. Full of chems it may be but it still looks ok. Creamy sweet vanilla aroma with some light hops. Similar flavour with a sweet malty finish. One of those beers where you wonder why you are bothering really. "Pasturised and artificially carbonated for keg and can" now how gorgeous does that sound. Come on you know you want some.

DruncanVeasey (8603) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 Painfully chilled pint in one of those chain pub places. Think we were killing time before a film. Bright amber topped with Gilette. Politely doughy. Almost some hints of soporific, watery apple, wood, metal, honey. Malt and nitrogen-driven, artificial, almost completely flavourless..but somehow not as offensive as it should be. I might have enjoyed it, but I’m admitting nothing.

BlackOut (43) - East End, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2007
I like it. I drink it when im hangovered, it sorts us out in a nice way as it barely has any alcohol in it. Best thing about it is that nice thick creamy head, very smooth and refreshing. Never have it in a pub, tastes like water, have it in a can where you can.
