2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
440ml Nitro Can from SuperValu (Ireland - £1.69):
Bland malts and a little sweetness from some brown sugar, there is a very faint and almost water like smell with some bitterness at the end.
Thick and quite creamy too before settling to a dark caramel brown colour with a very creamy, darkish white head on top that is about the width of a pinky and holds very well.
Bland with some malts and light caramel flavours and a sugary sweetness following this. There is a burnt toast and nutty flavour. The beer is quite bitter and very creamy.
Creamy with a medium to full body yet it still feels slightly watery. The beer seems quite bland and there is almost no carbonation with some small amounts of bitterness at the end.
Great looking beer when poured and settled but everything else about it was fairly average sadly. The aroma was bland and unexciting, definitely not an ale worth looking out for. I’m not sure if it would be better on draft and I’m not sure if I really want to find out either.It was drinkable and the nitro can was a plus.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Visual: Widget with CO2 + nitrogen. Initial pour has the cascading draught head, subsequent pour leaves a small 1mm head, half moon layer of retention, slow and steady loose clusters of streams.
Nose: very faint light toasted sweet barley malt. (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: flat, gentle (lvl-3-sweetness)
Mid-palate: dull carbonation, lightly toasted barley malt
Finish: barley malt grainy, light metallic
Summary: It drinks pretty dull and flat like the other nitrogenated beers I’ve had. The flavour is very one-note and basic. Uninteresting, but somehow I got a buzz from 4.3%.

First out of a bottle. I could hardly believe this was actually marketed at a fairly high price. I tried the can with the widget. Terrible. Rusty tap water with a hint of soap. Poured well over half of each down the drain. Absolutely awful.

From a can with a nitrogenated widget. Pours a light flat brown. No characteristic creamy head on this beer. Still in date. Musty malt aroma and light malt taste. Fairly watery and thin. Disappointing. Not like I remembered.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Drank it years ago but didn’t rate so I’ll fix that now. Clear amber, small off white head. Metallic, fruity, toasty, light spicy. Taste is ok, sweet, toasty, malty, honey and gingerbread. Light body, quite watery, soft to medium carbonation, abrupt finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
the aroma is fruity and caramel with shades of raisin, bread, berries and some herbs... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of caramel, berries, black bread and some grasses... sweet, dry and, a little bit, bitter aftertaste...

Guinness gets all the hype in Ireland but in my opinion this is the nicer brew. Creamy, nice head. Goes down smooth, well balanced. Great on cold days.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber colour, nice head. Weak aroma of mainly hops, caramel and some dried fruits. Taste is dry, with low bitterness. Creamy, drinkable and pleasant in general, but lacks any depth.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bière au goût assez léger présentant une légère touche de caramel. Le goût est assez faible mais c’est une bière assez désaltérante.

Faint aroma of coffee and caramel. Taste of toasted malt and mild caramel. Somewhat watery. It’s okay.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aromat: słodowy, lekko alkoholowy (ale z gatunku wyższych alkoholi), karmel, trochę ciasteczek, mało intensywnie
Wygląd: głęboka miedziana barwa, idealnie klarowne, piana o barwie kości słoniowej, wysoka, gęsta, kremowa, trwała, zostawia po sobie ładny fartuszek
Smak: słodowy, wyraźnie karmelowy, wodnisty, goryczka niska
Podniebienie: bardzo niskie nagazowanie, lekkie, aksamitne, pijalne, lekko taninowe
Podsumowanie: śliczny koncerniak, który dobrze "wchodzi", walory smakowe nieszczególne, ale z drugiej strony nie jest wadliwe
