Very little to say. Everything about this beer is mediocre. You’d drink it if it was the only pint on offer. Aroma is faint and possibly malty. A flat (no, flaccid) taste, a hint of bitterness, but not enough. Boring. No character or personality.

I’d love to know how this beer got by the Tetley’s tea trademark (is it a country thing??!). Anywho, this one is passable, but not very good, with typical flavors and aromas. It is fairly smooth.

Smoothflow, Nitrokeg. Light amber with extensive Nitrogen bubbles and big head. Tinny gassy product, soapy and pretty awful.

More intriguing than good, really. Very still, with an amazing creamy, thick, and long-lasting head. The head lasts all the way to the bottom of the pint. Taste is nothing special, with the most prominant taste of bitter.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
ALLOVATE’s review pretty much says it all. This beer is really not that good at all. It is very thin with minimal hop flavor and aroma as it warms closer to true cellar temp(55F). The color is a very nice copper/gold. I do like some beers smooth flow, but I think that the brewer needs to up the hops and malt content to make this beer more palatable. British ales are losing much ground to light Euro lagers all over GB. Hopefully CAMRA will find some way to pull a few Real Ale drinkers back to their side of the bar.

SMOOTH is the key word here. Small frothy head, tempting color, there is aroma enough to make you think of those good bitters you had a while ago but this one doesn’t give much. Some hops, some bitterness, but most of all:

not much of a bitter. Rather smooth and not as much of a bite as i was expecting (or hoping for). Still, can’t complain that much

Hey, it’s not the greatest bitter, but drinkable and a lot better than some of the other reviews give it credit for.
