Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2014
Nitro like mouthfeel. Creamy slightly nutty with corn adjunct flavor. Moderately bitter, moist lingering on the tongue. Low to moderate middle body and finish. Corn flavor and hops blend poorly. Would not order again.

440 ml nitro can into imperial pint glass, canned on 12/21/2016. A beautiful nitro cascade. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and creamy cream colored head that lasts the whole glass. Thick soapy lacing coats the whole glass as you drink. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of honey, cracker, biscuit, and lightly toasted bread; with lighter notes of nuttiness, caramel, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of bready malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big honey, cracker, biscuit, and lightly toasted bread; with lighter notes of nuttiness, caramel, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very slight diacetyl in the aromas and flavors, but hardly noticeable. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of honey, cracker, biscuit, lightly toasted bread, light nuttiness/caramel, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Mild carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly silky/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice cream ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the nitro finish. Very flavorful with nice clean malt flavors and restrained hop/yeast notes. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Jabic (610) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Ar: Pineapple, red apple, and toast; sulfur edge; bready, with dry toasted notes. Ap: Crystal-clear copper; whipped nitro head, great retention and silky texture. T: Toast and butterscotch; silky sweet malt, with pineapple and dried apple skins; medium bitterness with a peppery, dried-leaf hop flavor; finish is lingering tropical fruit skins and a touch of alcohol warmth. P: Medium body with medium-low carbonation, but nitro fullness; finish is medium-dry. O: Delicious nitro pub ale; lots of English yeast character, bright, peppery hops, and a depth of malt flavor; so rich yet easy-drinking!

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma was creamy malt. An average beer.

Najfajniejszą częścią tego piwa jest piana. Wysycenie nie jest zbyt wysokie. Słodowość, karmel. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

Simple, aroma very light, could not recognise. Taste of sweet malt, and and early herbal hopp balance. Not well bodied.

Piwo jasnoburszynowe. Piana dość szybko zanika. W aromacie i smaku słodowość, pieczywo, karmel. Wysycenie średnie. Jako że kupione w dyskoncie, przy braku innych opcji. Całkiem na plus.

ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Pictured 440 ml can from Keg Liquors; if there’s a date on the can, it’s undecipherable to me. Aroma: A very light nose with something like cider vinegar accompanying sh*tty biscuitty malts (thanks Beersiveknown for the new nomenclature); the impact of any hops is predictably minimal. Appearance: Penny copper with nitro holding up a thick tan cap of head. Flavor: Hmm. Biscuity malts take on a slightly sweeter, somewhat toasted personality; just enough hop bitterness to tie up the malt sweetness; the finish is off-dry. Palate: Light body, slick texture, nitro carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A bit all over the map for me; it’s a firm no-go in terms of aroma/palate, but it’s not a terribly off-flavor drink. In the same vein, I’d much more likely grab a Boddington’s if I were looking for a widely available nitro "pub beer."

Shared 44cl can. Hazy copper, creamy off-white head. Malty nose. Taste of malt, stale bread. A little watery. Bland overall.

darbeer75 (909) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Aroma: sweet and malty; not appetizing; Appearance: clear amber pour with creamy white head that looks like it’s nitro; Taste: much worse than aroma; malty with unpleasant hoppy backbone with odd sourness; Palate: medium body with long, ugly finish; Overall: won’t be running out to buy again.
