Malty, slightly sweet.
Taste: A little carbonation on the tongue. malt, sweet, smooth, a watery nitro mouthfeel.
Had this at a pub in Stanley on the Falkland Islands.

This is one of 3 English bitters that I've tried during the last couple of weeks. My friend lives near Lakenheath and he brought me several to sample.
Of the 3 bitters I've tried (John Smiths, Boddingtons, and Tetley's) this one is the best of the 3 but it's certainly not my favorite category nor is it a top notch beer. That said, it's a good solid bitter.
Nice appearance...nice head.
Good tasting beer.
Little syrupy mouthfeel.
Overall...little better than average beer.
Serving type: can
