1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aromas of bread, pound cake, a little metallic, notes of Irish whiskey. Beautiful, clear amber with a fully lasting smooth, thick, white head. Flavors of copper, grain, some caramel, finishes a little bitter. Light-medium bodied, very smooth, very easy to drink. Meh.

A low alcohol smooth English Ale. Pours clear amber, big head, like Guiness. Low smell, little bread, grain. Taste is mellow, very basic ale.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amazing pour from the nitro, like the cream from a root beer float, settling to a hazy amber with giant, creamy nitro head. Mild aroma of pale malts and grain. Taste is light bready with a little crackers and caramel. Not a great flavor, but nitro head and creamy palate keeps it interesting.
