Pours a deep amber gold, after the charge eventually settled into a medium, fluffy, pure white head of tiny bubbles. Almost no carbonation visible.
First sip: Nice mild malts which are slightly sweet. Slight bitterness of hops. Not much else happening there. It's like there's a party in my mouth, and everyone's asleep.
Mouth feel is quite creamy but also a little watery. There is very little carbonation (Fizz? In an English beer? NEVAR!) In fact, there is very little of anything. It's an English bitter but there's really all I can say about it. But this would be an ideal session beer with nibblies on a cold day, or to wash down a curry. The taste does improve a little as it warms in the glass, but it's still rather bland. That and the low alcohol content promotes drinking it in gulps instead of sips. At least I can't taste the can.
Drinkable, nice, but I can't say it's a yummy beer.

Same again, sir? Yes, thanks.
