COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg: Regular.
Marstonís Smooth has all the easy drinking qualities you would expect from a smooth beer, with some extra - a truly distinctive and full flavoured taste. As with all our beers it is crafted with the finest ingredients. Prize winning barley delivers its full and malty flavour and our use of traditional English Golding and Fuggle Hops combine to create the clean, bitter taste. The late addition of American Cascade Hops delivers its enticing aroma and moreish citrus finish. Marstonís Smooth is a smooth beer with an ABV of 3.6%. You will find it available of draught nitrokeg in select pubs nationwide (UK).

On keg at Durham City FC - lots of good looks, but it is just another nitro bland with little character.

dynamiteninja (1488) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Keg draught at the Durham Ox, Northallerton. This was surprisingly good. Amber body with a thin white head. Nose is hops, citrus, tangerines. Tangy taste. Dry finish. Pretty good for a mainstream "smooth" beer.

JorgeLee (1171) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at the Oval, watching all two deliveries of a rain-afflicted England-NZ T20 match with Gurney. Pretty average beer, mostly cold and wet nitrokegged crapness, there is a vague hint of some fruity hop in the finish but overall I wasnít a fan.

wimpyjoe (3722) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
Smooth crisp golden ale with a thick creamy head on it. Has a fruity pale ale aroma and some of this is carried through in its taste.

vipinvelp (2127) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2012
Clear golden yellow with thick smooth foam head, lips ticking and making drinking rings to glass. Aroma is nice bitter hops, so is taste. A damn good beer, in particular ad I was thirsty. Short bitter aftertaste. (Humberside 201212) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kwik-lime (1292) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2011
I do confess to rather liking the swirly appearance of nitro-keg bitters as they settle. Thatís the only positive to be said about this beer, which I only drunk as it was the free beer option with my burger. Should have had Fosters instead of this typically watery, flavourless beer, and thatís not a compliment of Fosters. Utterly typical of nitro keg bitter, ie a bland, cold, nothingness.
