2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask in the Whitby Rugby Club. To be fair the cask version of john Smiths isnít a bad drink. Some of the ratings on here seem to be for keg/extra smooth, which is admittedly terrible. The cask version is a very standard and drinkable bitter that tastes pretty much of you would expect. Biscuit malt flavour and very average.

Again at some working mens club in Stockport, Greater Manchester. Got absolutely nailed that night, clearly remember and can see from my notes that I did not like this at all. Not much smell, light in the flavour and mouthfeel department. It probably goes down well in large quantities. No thanks.

Drank in London. Frothy white slow head. Dark amber color. Moderate malts and hops on the nose. Moderate bitter flavor. Oily palate. Aromas and flavors are thin and all in all this was not as good as expected.

First smell is nitrogen followed by a sweet malty aroma. Its a deep red or brown in color. Crystal clear with a decent offwhite head if tiny bubbles. Smooth slightly sweet at first then bitter follows. Almost get a chocolate flavor then a tin can flavor. From the can im guessing. I taste the nitrogen. Its not a horrible beer but not much on flavor either. A good bitter. Just needs a bit more body.
