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.

Pale amber color with good foam (thanks nitrogen). Aroma: diacetyl and fruits. Taste: watery, a little caramel and earthy hops.

Pours a crystal clear amber from a can with a thick nitrous head. Aroma of bitter hops and some pale malt; flavor similar. Okay beer.

Luktar päron. Skummar bra och ger krämigt skum. Mild och len, lättdrucket. En helt ok Britt.

Creamy mouthfeel on a smooth and mild bitter. Very easy drinking and light on the hops bitterness makes it accessible. Can.

on tap, not sure why it says "can" here. clear golden colour with dense no2 head and some lacing. mild grainy aroma, grassy and woody flavour, creamy texture. nothing special.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2015 This brew is nice and light and very easy on the tongue. A refreshing ale that pours nice and creamy, it’s always welcome and enjoyable. A great taste, great feel, great aroma, and one of my favorites!

Light and creamy with a soft caramel character, decent bitter finish. Not my thing but a pretty classic british ale I guess.

We tried our first beer for the European night with a British focus. A nitro ball was in the can to give to help give it the creamy taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pale golden with medium head. Very creamy and a bit metallic. Not very nice.
