Nitro tallboy. Clear dark gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is malt, bread and something metal. Yikes, metal prominent in the taste as well. Body is light, but creamy. I donít love the flavor, but see how you could drink a bunch of these if you really wanted to.

The john smiths is a good British beer for people first getting in to beer tasting. The overall appearance is basic a dark brown haze. The taste has a slightly nutty feeling but nothing more to it. No hoppyness what so ever.

Pint on tap as Extra Cold. Takes ages to settle. Slight malt nose, hazy brown beer with solid white head. Tastes like still cold water. Aftertaste is slight malt sweetness. And thatís it.........

Smooth Flow can. Nutty brown with a thick, creamy white head. Malty, slightly sour and a bit watery. Would never be my first choice but ok in a pinch

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Can. Dark, clear beer with foamy white head and low carbonation. Nose is thin, nutty and soapy. Limited taste of nuts, biscuit, ginger, light non-descript hoppiness and mild bitter medium-length finish with clawing metallic aftertaste. Reasonably smooth palate. Not an enjoyable experience

Mar 2015 - Sample from keg at The Railway Putney. I didnít want to order one of these just for the tick, as Iíve never been a fan. In the past Iíve ordered a pint of this, left 500ml and ordered something else. Yes, itís thin, malty, watery yet astringent and drying. As poor as I remember. Dry and unappetising. Not suited to keg, but then I doubt it would be good via any dispense. Strangely wide and enduring availability. If this was the only beer in the pub, Iíd order a coke.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 Keg at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear amber colour with a creamy white head. Slight aroma of caramel, leather and fruit. Taste of caramel, biscuit plus some fruit, yeast and nuttiness. Creamy texture and soft carbonation. Fruit bitterness in the finish. Itís bland, boring and weak, but still drinkable. Not unpleasant and ok if nothing better is on.
