3.98/5  rDev +13.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 14.9 oz nitro can. Freshness date of March 27, 2009.

Pours a beautiful dark amber with almost 2 heads. Millions of tiny cascading bubbles coming up from the bottom briefly forming a darker head before merging with the main fluffy white 2 finger head. Drops to a 1 finger head that lasts for the whole glass and leaves pretty nice lacing.

Lovely aroma. Nice floral aromas from the hops. There is also an interesting spice note that is similar to cinnamon. Some nice malty aromas as well. Some grain like aromas come out as it warms.

Taste is very good. There are some nice malt flavors, and there is another flavor which is like coffee, but its very well hidden. Some hop flavors come out. Slightly bitter finish with that coffee like taste emerging again with some malts. Mouthfeel is very smooth. Carbonation seems pretty light. Very good drinkability. Could easily have a couple of these.

Some weird thing I noticed is the BA website lists it as 5% alcohol, the can in the picture says 4.4% and the can I have says 3.6%, so I am unsure which one is correct, or if they dropped the alcohol content in it. Either way it is still very good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

This ale is strangly addictive, and a great session beer

I would call it a cross between a Scotch Ale and a Cream Ale, with a thinner body and a Guiness like head on the beer

The top is frothy / creamy / smooth like a Guinesss, and the body is reminicent of a thinner version of a Smithwicks, and it goes down very smoothly

It is slightly sweet with malt and carmel and inoffensive - almost no aftertaste other than a slight bitterness to cut the sweetness which disappates almost immediatly

It tastes just about the same on draft as it does out of the can, great session ale and I would recommend giving it a try, it can be had in singles or 4 packs at Total Wine so it is easy to ge a hold of

Very happy I recently ran into this

3.71/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Lovely copper hue that it shows off. Thick crown of flat, dense nitro-foam. Love the looks of these beers.

Semi-staled grains, husky fruitiness maybe, and a subtle hop note--probably East Kent. Has a solid character to it, despite the lack of magnitude.

Tea-like hop finishes with mild bitterness as true cereal grains come through with a quaint English twist. Faint dry apple note. Even a little dextrinous.

Milky feel with a nice and light carb feel. Accents the mouthfeel nicely, but the body could've carried a bit more weight. I'm being picky, because I typically love these nitro-pales.

All in all, Tetley's is good stuff. Recommended.
