2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I don’t mind this nitro can, I have much more found memories of drinking this on tap in London, but I’m afraid they are much too old other than for a nostalgia rating. In the can in Canada though, it pours thick and creamy as you would expect, with a more assertive body than Boddingtons. And there actually is a slight malt character to the taste and very slight hint of hop bitterness. But the nitro bubbles take care of most of the flavours; what you are left with is a very easy drinking low alcohol beer that you could do far worse than if this is your style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nut brown beer with a very white and dense head. The aroma is sweet with notes of nuts and caramel. The flavor is of nuts, hops, and roasted malt with a very dry end. The mouthfeel is very soft.

Amer color with a thick white head. The taste is kind of watery but smooth with a present bitterness and notes of hops in the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the original Hard Rock Cafe in London of all places. Pours a dark amber color with a thin light beige head. Thin lacing. Mellow malt aroma. Very smooth drinking, with flavors of malt, brown sugar, sweet fruit and hops. The finish is lightly bitter but does not last very long. Decent overall, but could be better.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. Said Pub draught Ale on the can but I am assuming this is the right one. Golden colour with extra thick nitro head. Lager nose (this is common in British ales...they smell like lagers!). Slight roasty malt, rather sharp, with light hops. The bitterness carries welll though. Light body for an ale.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a chesnut brown body with a very fluffy and thick off-white head. I can detect almost no aromas at all, but I am getting a very faint amount of malt in the aroma. Taste is actually almost non-existant, and I am lacking words that can describe it. Nice mouth feel though, and I imagine that due to its low alcohol, you could put a few of these away with no problems.

A guilty pleasure. This is a creamy amber brew that's not really long on flavor, but has a nice mouthfeel. If I was still living in the UK I wouldn't bother, but being back in Canada, this beer brings back fond memories. Nice for session drinking.

Faint hops in the aroma. Dark honey/caramel colour with a creamy head that lasted the distance. Touch of bitterness but not much else in the taste department. Could drink plenty of these but one was enough.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Absolutely no aroma.
Nice chestnut colour, low creamy head.
Could not detect any flavor either - weak beer.
Med body - anonymous finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned. Creamy head (because of the little ball inside the can!). Strange mouldy aroma with some roasted malt. Not good!! Mild taste with a little fruit. This is the worst of the English bitters I had on my trip to London. Only good thing about this bitter is the smoothness....
