Dark red amber pour. Looks great, and I like the hops used, it’s just not a big enough beer in the flavor or nose to stand up well to being on nitro. Everything muted, earthy and fruity. OK. Cajun (539) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - APR 5, 2017
Bottle - Pours a deep ruby, bit of creamy. Thin fermented breads, hints of toffee, hints of watered caramel, bitter hops finish. Not impressed. beer_rookie (642) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 9, 2017
Pre-pour notes. Okay so, I had two bottles of this out in the truck. Went out to get something from the truck. Very cold out, well below freezing. The bottles exploded. Top neck, bottom base. Gone. Kablooey! However, they’re still frozen. Mostly intact. I’m guessing the nitro doesn’t like to be froze. So, I’m gradually thawing it out. Then I am going to sift, filter and strain out any glass, and give it a try.ronaldtheriot (1981) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Aroma is very sweet and malty. Fruity, like a soda.
Can’t quite get appearance down. Light copper to amber. Loss of nitro is bad, would probably help.
Taste is malty, sweet. Orange marmalade is an accurate descriptor. Has sort of a pecan shell bitterness.
Mouthfeel is thin. A little papery. Light bodied. A better bottle would give more body.
Overall, despite its condition. I’m still enjoying it, and it’s still pretty good. I’ll try another bottle if I see it, and redo this. I’m intrigued enough to buy it again.
With a vigorous pour, Squatters Nitro Red Ale achieves a creamy, ivory head and a clear, brick-red appearance, some big suspended sediment chunks, and a bit of spiderweb lacing left on the glass. Aroma is of fruity (orange marmalade?), tannic, malt notes. Taste is of malt, fruit, mild hop bitterness, tea leaves, and sweet bread crust. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Nitro Red Ale finishes medium dry and highly drinkable. RJT dwyerpg (6378) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 14, 2016
So this looks nice. The nitro gives it a super creamy mouthfeel. The problem is the flavor just isn’t that good.

12oz bottle from Smiths
Pours clear dark amber/copper with a medium sized creamy beige head, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, bisquity and grassy. Taste is watery, grassy and fruity
It starts off good, appearance and aroma but the nitro makes it flat and bland.
