Do you mean that beer is supposed to be carbonated?
Tetleys is brewed in Yorkshire - Northern England.
Greene King is brewed in Suffolk - Southern England.
As I haven't been to Northern England for over 30 years, I really don't know anything about Tetleys, but I got to Southern England quite frequently, and am familiar with Greene King IPA.
In England, it comes in wooden barrels, and is a naturally conditioned real ale.
It is very lightly carbonated, but not completely flat, and should be drunk at a temperature of approximately 55 degrees F.
I have come across other canned English beers - Ruddles and Boddingtons. Both of these are in my opinion disgusting. They both have nitrogen widgets, and do not taste anything like the original English ales.
The only English beers that I have found in America that approximate to real ale, are all found in bottles, and are brewed by Fullers, Morland, Ruddles, Samuel Smith, and Youngs.
I also believe that Morland and Ruddles are both owned by Greene King.
Hope this helps.
