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.

It's hard to find beer in America that approximates a smooth London ale served on tap in a London pub. So far this is as close as I've come. The nitro is a good effect, though it feels like cheating. Still, this ale goes down easy.

Väldigt snäll, eller smaklös. Den rinner ner, men så mycket mer finns det väl egentligen inte att tillägga?

Drink cold (8-10°C) Eye: pours a golden-copper colour with nice thick white head, really draft like. almost no carbonation. Nose: malts, hops, grass perhaps. Mouth: buttery body, tastes of honey, bread, hops and something sweet, might be caramel. Palate: honey and hops.buttery consistence remains. Overall: nice smooth beer but nothing extraordinary, really.

Can. Clear golden brown, thick medium head. Aroma has grain and malt. Taste has grain, roasted malt and sweet syrup. Short aftertaste. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Body is a bit thin.

hockeybeerguy (1953) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a gentle hazy orange to brown color with a one finger soft white foamy head that once it dissipated there was some really nice soapy clingy lacing gracing the sides of the glass. The smell had a nice English maltiness (construed to some as being "soapy") but if anything I understand it to be the English malts aligning themselves with the fuggles hops. So, eventually, a decent sweet toffee with a light caramel does come out. The taste was mainly sweet with a toasty edge to it. Light toffee comes forth and spreads out around my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body and rolls really smooth all around. Overall, mmmm...great bitter well worthy of having again. Pass the fish n ’ chips!

Noe sur/søtlig duft av frukter. Klar gyllen farge. Tykt hvitt skum. Søtlig smak av frukter med en god ettersmak

440 ml can. Pours a clear golden orange with a very small, white head that fades quickly. Sweet aroma of caramel malt and a light fruit note. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit with a mild, bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a smooth, watery texture and flat carbonation.

ClutchMasterson (42) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a rich golden yet clear from a pint can. Very elaborate head that has a classic nitro formation which settles to a 1 finger thick head that doesn’t quit. Has a sweet maltiness with a slight metallic twinge. Hints of bread linger as well. Has a wheat bread taste that drops off to mild hop flavor with little to no bitterness. Hints of dough reside as well. Has a slick mouthfeel to it. Overall not a bad brew and pretty refreshing.

labattslover74 (30) - Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Poured from a can, very thivk cream that hasnt dissipated yet 5 minutes after pouring. Copper color with a bread sweet smell. Taste of hops, dough and caramel. It is like Guiness stout, but a lot less harsh, and has a smooth sweet finish. Not bad.

Can. Copper color with small but steady head. Aroma of cream. Carbonation is low. Taste is smooth and milky with nice bitterness in aftertaste. Nice ale for drinking.
