This beer is brewed soley for the Nicholson's pub chain (M & B) and can be found in London and Birmingham that I know of.
My review is of a hand-pulled pint in the strange but beautiful Bacchus in Birmingham, an M & B badged cellar bar on 5th Dec 2012.
Fairly robust light amber colour: not your regular 'Pale Ale' hue anyway. The head being off-white and thin from the start.
Leans towards semi-sweet maltiness rather than hop fronted: pleasant enough without exciting your taste buds or smelling senses too greatly. Biscuity, baked malts with a mini-hop finish to balance out the sweetness. This is OK but I wanted something better: I like both the Nicholson's pub chain and St Austell breweries beers but I hoped this would blow my socks off, it didn't.

This was served from cask at the (Nicholson's) Feathers pub in Westminster, London (UK).
Appearance: clear amber with a solid white head; good lacing.
Smell: malty biscuits and a hint of earth from the hops.
Taste: super smooth balance of hops and malt in the mildest PA you've ever experienced.
Drinkability: This is too easy; a low(er) ABV Pale Ale which would be great to introduce newbies to the style. Pairs perfectly with the lamb cutlets.

Poured a medium pale gold with a nice lacing and white head, smell has pleasant floral and citrus hop notes, light biscuit malt. Taste is similar, lemony citrus hops, mouthfeel is light and a tad watery, light carbonation, pleasant and refreshing though. A nice sessionable pale ale, quite light and works decently well. On tap at Deacon Brodie's, Edinburgh.
