It's nice enough. It's used in a lot of "cheese" recipes as it has a sort of savoury umami flavour that is not unlike a very mild parmesan. I used to use it in my pre-vegan days, if that's any vouch of it's quality.
I think the main problem with it is that you'd need to eat a hell of a lot to get any substantial amount of protein. Chuck a tablespoon over your pasta for a bit of extra protein. I wouldn't sit and eat it by the spoonful, though.
Edit: I've just noticed you're from Brighton (I grew up in Lewes) and you can almost certainly get in in Infinity Foods.
It should be £2-£3 for a tub. The Engevita one with added B12 (blue and orange tub) tastes like assbutts, but their other one (grey and orange tub) is nice. Maybe I had a bad batch of the B12 stuff, but it tasted unpleasantly like vitamin B tablets.
