Glad to see that you saw the difference. Try leaving one alone in the fridge for a week and you'll see even more of an improvement vs. the 2-day one. I've found this to be especially true of my darker, lower-carbonation styles.

It is, and this is why I carbed to 2.3 (In Britain they also serves it as low as 1.5 if I read correctly). But my problem was that it didn't feel like 2.3 in my bottle. I was not complaining that I don't like the low carb

It's a Southern English Ale.
Not only should it have low carbonation, it should also not be refrigerated. It should be drunk at cellar temperature (55 - 57F)

-a.

+1.

Unfortunately, I can't run my keezer at that temp due to the two other kegs in there. I have to dispense the English Brown and then let it warm a bit by holding the glass in my hands.
