Dazbo, trust me, I know the true taste of beer, and the style that you refer to as "real" ale.   Contrary to your sterotyped images, we do not drink all beer ice cold.

The pewter, from the tankards I've used, adds a metalic taste that masks the hops and barley and all the notes that are created. If you drink the same beer in a glass, or even plastic or ceramic, you do not have the extra addition.

You might have a product that differs from what passes as a pewter tankard in the U.S., which is what I am trying to find out.
