This beer poured more of a dark golden color with a hint of ruby to it. It had a Guinness-like cascade to the head. Similarly to Guinness, the head adheared to the sides of the glass all the way down. The aroma was pretty non-descipt: inhale deeply enough and you got a twinge of malts and hops. The taste wasn't much better. Somewhat bitter, but not too much malt at all. No malt sweetness either. Of my week in England, this was the worst one that I had.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Unimpressed is the word. Very thin, stale, metallic bitterness, industrial taste with no standout flavours, pretty crappy, but had a nice head and lace....which was very surprising.

A good beer, very thick frothy head. Tastes good but not much flavor, and certainly not very bitter (which may not be a bad thing). Very drinkable.
