used to be one of my favorites .I grew up in Leeds where they brew it.As my palate develops I still enjoy it But I have to admit that there are better bitters Mungular (48) - Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2010
I love mild English ales and Tetley’s is one of the best. It pours a beautiful amber body with a soft, creamy, off-white head. Smells of toffee, caramel and a hit of floral notes. Initial taste is sweet with a finish that is semi-salty. The palate is perfect for the type; very smooth and creamy. Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 6, 2000
Though the fellow I was with - who was from Manchester England - disagreed, this was in my opinion among the better english creme ales. Very nice. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2002
From the draught can. A little cloudy, but looked like iced tea. Widget gave a great meringue head that lasted the whole beer. Sweet smell (weak) and taste. Hints of cinnamon and cherry wood. Smooth body, almost flat. Light and refreshing.

Had a 3 of these on tap today at the Old Bag of Nails Pub. This brew pours a clear hazy ruby copper. The Guinness- like NO2 spawned head is ultra-creamy, lasts to the bottom, and coats the glass in sheets. I’d give it a 5, but using Nitro is cheating IMHO. The subtle aroma is toasted and mellow, speaking of dried fruit and flowers. The warm and spicy flavor is wonderfully complex and balanced. The finish is long and rich. The soft and creamy palate has a mostly full body and a clean feel to the finish. I’ve made a new friend. Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2002
Gigantic creamy head subsided into a frothy capuccino head. Reddish bronze color with gratuitous lace. Smoothe super buttery malt flavors with caramel peeking through, morphing into a toffee flavored experience. Fruity aromas. Nice Balance. Not as good as the draught, but beggars can’t be choosers. Yummmmm. Mellow. OriginalCheeser (32) - USA - JAN 22, 2003
Smooth creamy flavor tan color. Goes down easily but flavor is not very complex. Good choice for a change of pace. EricTheRed (82) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2003
UPDATED: APR 10, 2003 Yum. if there were a beer flavored milkshake...
copper color, thick head, smooooooooooooth texture, nice bitter hops finish. Previous comments were for canned. Had this on draft in Naperville today and it was good, but perhaps overpriced at $5/pint.
