I had heard talk about this before, but had never had the opportunity to try it. To my surprise, they had it on tap at my usual pub this New Years Eve. I tried a pint of Salvator first (letdown), then the rest of the night I drank these. I was very surprised to see them bringing it to the table. It was very nice looking, as it was just starting to settle. After my second taste (the first seemed to be all head)I was pleasantly surprised. This is the first bitter I've tried, and I believed it was excellent. I think I may have a new favorite at the pub, if they'll keep it on tap.

Well, as seems to be the trend with these UK brews this was gorgoeus. The swirling mass of yellow nitrous waterfalls and beautiful golden color prepare you for something remarkable, but leave you wondering where the hell the flavor is. I mean, why do these people spend so much time making these look great and completely gimp out on the taste. This was absolutely watery and void of flavor, truly disappointing.

The head on this was great. the first half tasted great. the second half tasted flat on all cans tried.

I thought this was average overall. It's good, but doesn't make me want to send them all my hard-earned cash. The head was about the most exciting part.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2003 My mistake... this is good. Okay it was kinda creamy but had no flavor to speak of... what's the use of that... like caronated milk.

Creamy!! I love creamy. It was golden and beautiful in my glass. I swear I tasted a fruitiness in it. I would love to taste it on the tap and see what flavors are really hidden in there.

Golden appearance, typically trippy nitro foam. Sweet caramelly nose and thin, watery body. Finishes bitter yet disgustingly sweet.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2004 Has a golden color with a very thick white head, but with little smell. Taste was also very light malts, but very, very smooth and no bitterness. Overall a different beer, but one I could drink repeatedly...
