2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
An average ale. I tried the smoothflow version. Appearance = thick creamy head with a dark amber body. Nose = a slight barnyard smell with grass, hay and lemon, as well as a sour cream smell. Taste = slightly metallic, with a bit of caramel, roasted malt, lemon and a bit of grass. The beer is watery and unfulfilling.
Price paid = 50p (dented can).

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can of the "Original" version at a work quiz night, poured repeatedly into a small disposable plastic water cup- not one of my classiest drinking experiences! Was quite surprised to see it’s a separate rate to the keg version- had assumed I’d just be doing a re-rate. It’s a slightly murky amber-brown brew with a thick off-white head. A surprisingly fruity flavour with caramel and tea on the side. Sweetish, smooth and very easy-drinking. Very little hop presence at all. It’s not great, but it’s much better than I expected (although I should stress that my expectations were pretty low). It’s also much better than I remember the keg version being (and I’ve had the keg quite a few times) so maybe it is different enough to warrant the separate entry. Anyhow, it powered our team to winning the quiz, so it can’t be all that bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. 3.6%. Best before 16.06.16. As ’Tetley’s Smooth Flow’. Pours a clear, deep golden/amber, with a light tan, dense creamy head. Citrusy aroma with a light tart milky/yoghurt-like note. Note of grass with hints of melon and tropical fruits. Mild flavour; malty, hoppy, grass. Light metallic overtone. Bit of fruit as it warms. Slightly tart finish with a lingering grassy note. No real bitterness. Palate is so-so; obviously soft, due to the nitrogen, but I think it needs some ’kick’ from carbonation; feels a bit dull really. Overall boring. Looks great, but other than that it’s just boring. 19.03.16.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copenhagen 22/1 2016. 50 cl can from Netto. Can with a lot of flowing waves to stress the point hat this beer is "SMOOTH Flow". Pours hazy milky brown. Settles as clear brown with 1,5 cm thick creamy head. Aroma is sweetish with caramel, biscuit and a slight toasty note. Very low carbonation and watery palate. Taste is pretty harmless. A little caramel, biscuit and a pretty sweet aftertaste. But pretty watered down. It certainly has a smooth flow - but not much else.

Mild, low carb tosaty flavors with mild hop notes. Clear copper color. Light toasty aroma. Pleanty easy to drink and refreshing. Flavors come more to life as beer warms.
