KeefOz (2527) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2018
Can labelled "Tetley's Smooth Flow" with ABV = 3.6%. Poured a clear dark amber with 1cm of beige froth that retained very well and laced poorly. No carbonation after the nitro was expended. Aroma of sweetish caramel and toffee. Taste is quite sweet caramel; no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth with a thin mouthfeel and a creamy finish.

NeverBinge (325) - Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2018
Not much of a nose, neither malt nor hops - reminiscent of a cheap lager. Thin and uninteresting on the tongue. The creamy, nitro effect is positively terrible in a bitter.

21/10/2018. Can of the Original Bitter, 3.6% abv, from a skanky mini-market in Skegness run by a very rude chap indeed. The buying experience was marginally worse than the beer. Poured clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma malt, toffee, fruit, berries and metal. Medium plus sweetness, moderate but slightly unpleasant bitterness. Moderate body, slight oily and watery texture, soft carbonation. Metallic, berry bitterness to finish. Just fair.

danlo (4913) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2018
440ml can of Original from B&M Darlington. Amber colour, off-white foam head leaving some lacing and malty yeasty aroma. Taste is malt, toffee, yeasty with earthy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. OK.

zacgillbanks (6520) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2018
Can of Tetley's Smooth Ale from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Amber coloured with a thick creamy head of foam. It has a floral, slight herbal fruity, toffee and malty flavour with slight sulphur notes on the creamy smooth finish. Not bad for the ABV.

Salian (553) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2018
Smooth flow. Bready and lightly malty, a little bit of dry fruit flavour, smooth on the palate but the problem is the slightly metallic tang and the harsh bitterness.

deepdrinker (384) - Leeds, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 Not a memorable beer, creamy white head , that laces but bitter aftertaste what doesnt leave wanting more

TedE (1968) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2017
440ml can into pint glass. As Tetley's Smooth Flow. Widgety gush leads to a still golden bronze beer with a two finger tightly packed creamy head. Excellent lacing. Smells of caramel lollies being eaten in the next room. Smooth texture, toffee malt taste. Short finish. Standard English lunchtime pub bitter.

Hanoi (1142) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2017 Can. Nose is caramel, musty, fruit. Taste is caramel, berry, slight butterscotch. Smooth Mouthfeel. I?ve had worse.

macca147 (1836) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2017
On tap in Oxford. Pours a golden amber with a solid white head. Aroma: biscuity malt, caramel malt, grass notes. Taste: biscuity malt, caramel malts, very mild citrus flavours. Smooth. Mildly bitter. Medium body. Not much flavour, but still pleasant to drink. Better than I expected this to be.
