VRobertovich (27) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Clear, amber ale, with a white, creamy head and low carbonation. Creamy, yet a bit watery. Some citrus, caramel, and biscuit, but overall rather bland. Sessionable, though.

Maxbier (209) - Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2014
An exercise in nitro. Slightly malty hint of hops. This beer is a nitro delivery system. Very drinkable creamy smooth.

jsmerig (1238) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2014
pours a clear golden brown with a smooth foamy creamy head. Aroma is light grainy malt. Taste is very similar to a mild. Light and refreshing with a touch of malt complexity that is subtle. For the style this beer is good. For those looking for huge flavor and bitterness, this is not the style of beer for you. Rate it appropriately for what it is.

S_Side_Smitty (448) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours amber with a thick creamy head. Aroma is pilsener malts and light molasses. Guys, I was giving this a chance, but this is water with a super mild mild mild bitter finish. A can of water! Appearance is nice.

Douberd (2221) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Can 500 ml at home, as Tetley’s Original Bitter, ABV 3.6%, poured into a Guinness glass. Dark orange/light amber in colour, clear body, minimal activity in it. Small slighty off-white head on top, thick enough with good retention for its size, light lacing left behind. Aroma of red fruits, light caramel, marmalade. Taste also fruity but with metallic notes, stale hops, light grass. Light bitterness on the aftertaste with short duration. Medium thin body, okay carbonation, very dry palate. Not bad.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 11, 2014
Reddish color with a big off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel and malty. The flavor follows the aroma with some bitterness. Light in body, quite watery and medium to high carbonation with a slightly bitter finish.

440ml non-widget can as Tetley’s Smooth Flow bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Cloudy hazy amber honey colour; Two finger head with long-lasting creamy off-white foam; Moderate sticky lacing with zero carbonation; Light aroma of lager malt, with honey, molasses, bread, yeast and faint grass; Close to zero sweet taste of very light malt, with water, soggy bread, light lemon, light bitter hops and faint grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is near water-like with faint hint of malt, soggy faint bread and minimal hops. Nevermind characters because it has none... Hoppiness is faint grassy nose, low and flat lemony grassy taste. Bitterness is muted and uninspiring. Very low astringent non-finish; Wet after taste, Very easy to mouth.

Comments: This is just another pub-bound beer-water disgusted as Bitter, and it manages to be worse than John Smith’s Extra Smooth - sugary nose, beer-water taste, minimal malt / hops / yeast… Blah! Perfect for college shotgun or boat-racing, and that’s’ how useless it is.

Barreras (971) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Pours a milky brown color with an ominous flowing, moving body once poured out of the can. Once the beer stops moving it settles into a brillant amber color. Slight hop aroma with more of a clean water smell. Taste is smple and easy drinking. Unfortunately too simple. With all the pre movement of this beer, I expected lots of flavor, but it fell short.

HellesBunny666 (159) - Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bready smell, not very intense. Taste like roasted malts, grains, lightly hopped, buttery. Pours with a beautiful head comparable to latte microfoam, thick and milky, really pretty.
