I really like the way this one looks as its poured fron the nitro can. Big head that dissipates slowly to finally settle to a half inch head that stays to the end. You do get a creamy mouthfeel with this one that is nice bet there is no visible carbonation. There was, for me, no detectable hop bitterness. There is a different taste to this that some seem to not enjoy but that I just found to be unusual. A mild low abv choice that pairs well with a lot of food styles.

Nice color to it. No bitterness. Smooth and creamy texture. Lacking in taste, tasted watery.

Format: a tall, yellow can that is half-way decent. Okay I guess, just very macro. A bit cheap-looking.

Appearance: a clear yellow colour with limited visible carbonation. A half-finger of creamy white sits on top and lasts the distance. Decent.

Aroma: a fairly light aroma of fruit, florals and some sweet malts.

Taste: some more of those buttery sweet malts with floral and fruits. A nice flavour profile but very flat.

Aftertaste: the malts and some florals on the aftertaste, but still quite flat.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a lower carbonation. Needs more carbonation, as many British beers seem to do.

Overall: an okay English Bitter, but certainly too flat in feel for my liking. I'd really enjoy trying this one on tap instead of from the bottle. Nonetheless, decent for AU$83 for a 24 x 440mL case.

I seem to keep coming back to this one. Definitely better draft than in the can. Smooth taste and very creamy head. Easy to knock lots of these back at the pub.
