Very creamy and flat for a bitter ale. Thick frothy head that remains til the end of the pint. Pretty tasty with sweet pastries in the afternoon.

John Smith’s Extra Smooth has a cascading head, which eventually builds to a creamy, beige bar at the top, with a clear, copper appearance and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, creamy, tea, with bread, hops, and barley notes. Taste is of barley malt, bread, bread crust, sugar, caramel, nougat, iced tea, good hop bitterness, and even buttery flavor. Mouthfeel is full, but not heavy, and John Smith’s Extra Smooth finishes dry, refreshing, extra smooth, and delicious. Overall, this is really wonderful. RJT

Drinkable bitter with a very strong after taste. Drunk with no other alternatives available

Probably the best bitter around and doesn’t leave a dodgy after-taste like so many canned bitters.
