2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gorgeous tiny bubbles make for a beautiful head, and the mouthfeel is so smooth. However, it drops off from there. A decent toasted malt flavor, but no aroma to speak of, and pretty simple all around. Its easy to drink though.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours burnt orange with a generous creamy head and nice lace. Moderate toasted malt aroma with a touch of floral, leafy hops. Crystal malt flavor characteristics up front, with a nice leafy hops bitterness that comes through to fill it out. Highlight of the beer is its creamy smoothness on the palate. Nice carbonation, and a malt sweetness in the finish.

16 ounce widget can from Wine Warehouse Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber ones the nitro fades. Typical nitro creamy tan head. Aroma of toasted malts, stone fruits and herbal notes. The taste is bitter hops, toasted malts, nutty notes and a bit of clay. Thin bodied. Pretty bland.

On tap @ Cheshire Cat in Ottawa. Poured clear brown/red with a thick, creamy, persistent head. Aroma was grain/malt. Tastes were malt, mild toffee, slight bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel with a mild bitter finish. Great session beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated September 2004. Served from the can. Poured a golden-amber colour after finishing the cascade effect (from the nitro). Formed a beautiful off-white, thick and creamy head that stayed alive throughout the experiences. It has a nose of slight bananas. The aroma is where this brew could improve. Taste starts on a slight bitter note, and ends with a smooth finish. Could also taste hints of caramel and molasse. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, but the creamy head help a lot. One great session beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
440 ml can with a widget inisde. Best by: 15/05/12. Creamy descending nitro appearance, that slowly lifts to reveal a clear golden color. One-finger creamy off-white nitro-like head. Thick, even full-coverage lace. Very light, smooth carbonation. Creamy, dry texture. Not much to the aroma. Mild, malty mustiness. Some muted hoppiness. Nice, kind of bitter-savory taste. I enjoyed this, it’s a pretty decent - great to enjoy with some Lebanese meat pies.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
440 ml nitro can poured into a pint glass. Looks the same as the pic and is labeled Tetley’s English Ale but is labeled as 3.6% instead of the 5% listed on this website. Says brewed in Leed’s by Carlsberg. Pours a clear orange/amber, looks a bit like tea. Has a dense creamy white head, obviously from the widget. Smells of grain, bread, and mild light fruit accompanied by the usual widget can smell. Taste is extremely light with grain and light bread in the front and finishes with a moderate bitterness. The bitterness lingers. Overly creamy for a bitter from the nitro treatment but with a reasonable level of carbonation for the style. I thought it tasted stale so I checked the date on the can and it expires in a couple of weeks. I had this a very long time ago and was not overly impressed but I do think it was maltier and sweeter when I had it last. Average beer at best, I will not be buying again but would be willing to try on tap.

Minimal aroma. Poured a light brown in color. A ver mild english ale...I dont care much for it, but it seems true to the styke, especially for a can.
