Enjoyed a short stint of popularity here in Canada. You don’t see it much anymore in the pubs and bars, but you can still get it in the can. A nice, smooth bitter with little aftertaste.

Nitro-keg. Clear, copper-colored beer with a dense, creamy off-white head. Malt and some caramel in the nose. Malty flavor with caramel-notes. Where’s the hops? Lacks the bitterness in the finish too. Velvety and thin in the mouth. Too pleasant in a way, ie boring. (060710)

On tap in Winchester, UK. Reddish color. Creamy head a bit like a Guinness. Suprisingly hoppy and bitter. Some flowers also. Nice and good.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Very similar to Boddington’s in texture, and appearance. Nice dark body, smooth nitrogen head. No aroma evident. Good taste, light hops dominated by the malts, light fruit accents. Smooth and cool ending that’s typical for a nitrogen beer.

Smooth is a good word for it. Watery works too. Lightest bitter i’ve ever had. A touch of hops, but i was expecting more

SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Brown in color with white thick head. Bitter malt smell that led to a bitter copper dry taste.

farmboy (218) - Barwon Heads, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2006
Smooth, easy drinking beer that is underrated in my opnion. It’s not something I’d seek out, but if it was there on tap, I’d have no hesitation in indulging.

Tranquillity (2484) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2006
500ml bottle. Pours light mocca, settles deep mahogany brown with a big, stable, mocca-ice cream head. Coffee aroma, not too strong. Quite dry taste of... malt? No finish to mention.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2017 Can. Little aroma - light malt. Dark tan color. Good ale malt flavor especially at room temperature - not near as good ice cold. Don’t let this beer sit in cans too long - takes on a strong metallic flavor quickly. Otherwise not a bad choice if there’s not much else - if Honslow and Ford Prefect drink it, how bad can it be?
