I had this in a pub in London off the tap and was not impressed. I was expecting a much better beer. The cans must be even worse. It is a mild relatively bland Euro-swill beer.

What is so special about this, and what warrants a nitrogen can? Its just a boring lager type beer. A bitter? Its not bitter to me. Maybe Im ignorant to the style but come on. Quite pricey for what appears to be a complex beer. No its a pretender to the throne. I wouldnt recommend this to anyone. Average.

A good beer - the poms did something right - needs to be ice cold though otherwise it can be a bit bland

On draught. Golden color, nice creamy head. Very smooth, seemed more like a mild stout than a bitter. Drinkable,some sweetness but not really much going on here.

Some subdued fruitiness, cidery notes, and faint spicy hops in the nose. Creamy white head, golden color. Slightly sweet flavor, a little fruit and caramel on the tongue. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, no doubt from the widget in the can. I realize a bitter is the equivalent of the American light lager in England, but nonetheless this beer was unremarkable.

The head was OK as usual for such cans: creamy and tasty. But under the foam was an ordinary lager, not the best one. Amazing.

This came in a pint can with the widget inside. It poured nicely with an extremely white, creamy head. Extremely smooth to drink, and although the taste is not strong, it is very enjoyable. It has no bite, but it also has little alcohol. Overall a very enjoyable drink.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2003 Pint can with nitro widget. Creamy, white, fine, and persistant head sits atop a golden body. Not much aroma and a mild, slightly sweet, slightly bitter flavor. Not at all overpowering in any one direction. I love creamy textured beers but I prefer the ones with more pronounced flavors (like guinness).

Half the enjoyment for me with this beer is watching it after the pour. Thanks to the nitrogen ball inside the can it makes the coolest patterns as the head dissipates. I saw it described in earlier reviews as unremarkable and I agree but damn I love this unremarkable beer. It tastes good with everything don't let the low rating fool you.

I usually enjoy bitters, but this was different from others I have had. Much more clear and yellow than I expect from a bitter. Thin white head. Taste of hops with a very light and sweet aftertaste. I really wanted to like this beer but just did not meet my expectations of a British bitter.
