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

Really did not enjoy this one, maybe I got an old can, but it was pretty bad

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.
