2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From “Pub Draught” can. I guess this is supposed to be an example of an English “session beer,” but it doesn't really rock the american palate. The widget-type bubbler gave a good tall, cascading head (and this from a can that sat in my fridge for two years) that stayed with the beer and left a nice lace on the sides. Could not detect much aroma, which is better than smelling skunky, I guess. English pub style watery mouthfeel was uninspiring, and I couldn't pick up much taste, just a little residual sweetness. Nothing lingers much after the swallow. Nothing terrible, just not inspiring.
This is the same impression I got from the first can in the four-pack I got two years ago, so at least it keeps very well in the fridge.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce can into imperial pint glass, best before 4/2017. Pours clear orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and creamy off white head with incredible, retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Dense creamy lacing clings down the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, honey, light pear/apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, biscuit, honey, light pear/apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Light carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice English pale ale. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cerveja clara e transparente com espuma cremosa. Pouco elaborada e por isso um pouco aguada.

Not sure why I have never rated this beer on here before. This was my first drink when I was twenty one! Just an absolute classic, I need to find this beer on tap somewhere.

Nice thick head, golden color. Light bodied, texture is thin, flat carbonation. A bit bland beer but very drinkable and refreshing after a sauna.

500ml can. Pours golden with thick and creamy head. Mouthfeel is creamy too, its the best thing about this brew. Mild honey and malts. Light bitterness. With more taste this would be excellent.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased from a convenient store in Hong Kong. When opening the can the nitrogen ball causes the beer to spill a little bit and the cream comes from the lip. With rich super creamy head and a perfect golden brown colour. It tastes soft and smooth with flavour of honey nuts. The taste develops and becomes slightly bitter when its temperature is warmer (after pouring out in glass for around 45 minutes the white head still appears and I still find the taste comfortable).

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Very little taste of either hops or malt. It is reminiscent of Lucky Charms cereal with overtones of banana and a touch of fusel oil. How is this selling?
