Creamy and served a bit warm like as is typical in England but worth that for the traditional style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piepenhenrich (1124) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2017
Hand-pulled in the Rose St Brewery, Edinburgh. Pours golden-amber with a thin but lasting head. Tastes very mild, easy to drink, yet aromatic enough. Good Pale.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 Smooth bitterswest. Amber appearance. Fruit and caramel hints. No real bite on palate but fair strengh. Not much flavour I’m afraid. Hops seem slight.

theprof (1128) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Cask. Aroma modestly grain bread malt and earth but unremarkable. Appearance is better with an orange golden amber body and a white thin lace top that stays. Taste is as modest as the scent.but the requirements of a pale in terms of pale malts and light floral hops are there (insipidly). I don’t think the technicians at St Austell or the suits at Nicholson stretched their taste buds too much here. A craft brewer would have done more for the brand.

R4N5H (1288) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2016
On tap (cask) at The Magpie, London on 17-Oct-2016. Clear reddish amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of bread, malt and earthy hops. Medium body and soft carbonation. Smooth taste - bread, caramel, and malt. Light bitterness, and bittersweet finish. Nice, but a little light.
