If God had made nectar, its name would be Tetleys.

Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately floral-hoppy. Appearance: large, creamy, off-white, initial head with one long sheet of lacing that followed the entire side of the glass. Fully lasting longevity. Hazy, flat, orange body. Taste: moderately sweet initial flavor and lightly acidic finish with average duration. Palate: light-to-medium body, creamy texture and no carbonation. Overall: excellent. Will always be one of my favorites.

As close to this American can get to a hand pulled bitter in an old English pub. Sweet, fruity and the low carbonation is great. I drink this right out of the fridge until it is warm, and it still is awesome. A local chain called The Office used to have this alongside Guiness on the nitro tap and I was there all the time drinking it until I fell off the barstool. I guess my patronage wasn’t enough because it only lasted a couple of months. I don’t remeber what they replaced it with, probably Michelob amber Bock, or some other "macro made to look micro" swill. So now the best I can do is buy it in the can.

Tetley’s Smoothflow has a roiling, off-white head that builds to a medium, cream-like consistency, a deep amber appearance, with streaming bubbles and fine particles suspended throughout, and intricate, spider web lacing left behind. The aroma is rich and full: sweetness, toasted bread crust, brewers’ yeast, nut, caramel, toffee, and subtle candied fruit. Taste is of sweetness, nut shell, grain husk, tea dregs, subdued hop bitterness, white bread, and a shade of yeast. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Tetley’s Smoothflow finishes semi-dry, sweet, mellow, and ultra-drinkable. Overall, this is a most excellent English ale! RJT

This review is on the original, the ceamflow tastes totally different to me. Amber colour with a thin head (ceamflow had a good head), malt aroma, and dry bitter malt taste. I think this could possibly be the best "mass produced canned beer" in the world but it has to be this one, the original not the smooth but that’s only my opinion.

As someone else here has commented, a great session beer. Tastes great in Leeds especially.

Another enjoyable cream ale. Just look at the color of this beer and watch the cream rise. Creamier than some of the other average cream ales (Caffrey’s, Ruddle’s) and terrific classic bitter ale flavor.

has a sort of coppery smell on the surface but delving a little deeper she revealed her strong toasty malts and somewhat recessed hops (of the challenger variety??). Her appearance is that of a mature, distinguished lass: A nice off-white and well-groomed head of bubbly froth on a smooth, nearly flat clear amber body. Strong malts meet a well-balanced hop bitterness. The ABV being at 3.8% contributes to an exceptionally smooth flavor, practically free of alcohol flavor. the mouthfeel is very smooth with a great finish. Think of an exceptionally well rendered version of a simple tune you love... That’s what this beer is.
