From Hipercor Sevilla Este. In Ikea's english pint glass. At dinner, with chicken steaks + fideos soup + magnum almendrado. Very drinkble. Smooth, with a plesant and balanced english bitterness and fresh hops. However, its still a style that lacks some punch for me

Hazy copper gold with no carbonation and a half finger of off white head.

Pears, hay, light bitterness, skunk and caramel.

Starts creamy with hints of skunk, caramel, hay and a lightly bitter finish.

Creamy, foamy body due to the carbonation, light in constancy.

Well rounded on the tongue, the smell lacks a little, but overall a nice brew. Got tonight in Chiang Mai, Nov. 14th, 2015.

On cask at Marquess of Anglesey. I believe the ABV was less than the 4.5% listed here.
Came a straw-gold with small dense head (typical English pour). Nose was light, not much at all, with some breast malt and leather. Taste was watery malt, not much fruit or caramel notes at all. Some off astringency other than the light hop bitterness on the finish. Overall, very disappointing, especially after seeing some of the other reviews here.
