3.78/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy, light orange color (darker oranger with the final pour), with a decent light beige head.
Smell: Something malty, oily and ...cheesy (in a positive way) complemented / balanced out by a certain kind of hoppy freshness.
Taste: Similar balanced taste; very pleasant.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth texture.
Drinkability/Overall: Very pleasant beer; complemented very well (after initial sips) with mature cheddar and blue cheese.

P.S. My bottle's label mentioned a 7.4% abv; not 7.5% as mentioned in the description above.

3.89/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

11.2 oz bottle poured into a small milkshake pilsner glass. Best before 24 01 15. Date stamp of L132053 13 56.

Appearance: Hazy golden-amber. Thin off-white head. Some small islands and strands of persistent lacing, especially towards the bottom of the glass.

Smell: Lemon, malt, some herbal hops.

Taste: Pleasantly hoppy and bitter. Solid malt backbone with some notes of honey in the sweetness. A floral finish.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, chewy, a bit sticky on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: For the price of a small bottle, not something I would buy again. Good, but not amazing. However, if it were on cask in the UK at a lower price, I think I would definitely have another. A beer for savoring, and all the flavors come out at proper British beer temperatures. Let it warm up a bit to get the aromas and tastes. So a good beer overall, but rather expensive to have often or to drink a lot of.
