Very doughy aroma. Hazy golden appearance with minimal froth. Light, slightly bitter taste and somewhat flat palate. Overall, not a very good beer.

I had this several months ago on a cruise. It did have a creamy texture. Is has a caramel aroma with some sweetness.

Bork (401) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2015
Thin and watery concoction with that characteristic creamy smoothness. Low on aromas and flavors and quite metallic. Not impressive.

On draft, this so-called "pub ale" is an interesting English style pale ale, lighter than I expected but features the nitro smoothness of a Guinness. Thus features a good creamy texture and copper appearance, creamy head with full retention throughout the pint, smells weak of caramel malt. Taste is likewise weak, slightly earthy hops, some caramel malt. Drinkable, light, pleasant, however something macro-ish about it, but enjoyable as a table beer. There are much better English ales out there.

willisread (500) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 19, 2015
Old rating. Can from Old Town. Pours an amber color with nice creamy head do to the nitro action. Malts and caramel on the nose. Mildly bitter inoffensive beer.

RedDev7 (2) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2015 does not count
Inoffensive, smooth golden ale. A solid pub pint, even from the can. Definitely a nice turn for those wanting a post-work drink.

samzim (301) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Clear copper colour. Clean front with light grainy and toffee notes. Slightly watery with mild carbonation. Beer is fine, but I wouldn’t get it again.

Old rating. Dark Amber colored. Grainy, caramel, some sweetness, creaminess from the widget thing worked well. Just fine.

Padchenko (125) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2015
Creamy amber beer with good-sized head. Low carbonation. A light, sweet bitter. Goes down easy when having only 1 or 2. I don;t recommend having more than that as it can be a bit sickening

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/16/15] Draught at Cameron’s Inn in Half Moon Bay. Clear amber. Aroma of caramel and graininess. Weak flavor, a bit grainy, a bit caramelly, with light bitterness. Light-bodied.
