3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks like any ale, slightly red, has a head which rapidly goes a way and leaves some bohemian silk left. Smell is a bit sweet, and much like lagers often are. Taste goes the same way. This is probably one of the most non-offensive ales for a while. Silky, easy, mellow, and a bit average. But in good way. I reckon this is a great people’s beer. Nothing too fancy, definitely affordable, and still nice. Mocking a good choice of an average citizen would be slap to their face with a snob clove. I rather claim this is nice beer, and rank some ridiculously priced fancy pants beer down to hell.
On tap at Wainwright Pub. Pours a clear amber with a gold hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has lots of straw and musty bread with a hint of hay. Flavor is thin with a combination of bread straw notes. tlind2 (1773) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2017

Amber color, creamy head. Slightly sour aroma. Roasted malt, fruity notes and hints of nuts. Light body, light carbonation. Not bad for the style, though rather watery.
0.44l can. Clear copper body with a creamy yolk head that lasts forever thanks to the nitro. The aroma is quite bland. There is a bit of grains and toast to it, but not much else. The taste is a bit better. Grains and toast again with a bit of metal and tiny amount of floral hops. Drinkable, but really not that flavorful. theprof (1249) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2017
Cask. Aroma barely some biscuit malts. Pours amber with white foam top. Taste medium bitter. Palate sticky, carbonation above average and body medium. Cheap and ubiquitous. Some people sadly drink little else. thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2017
I was tempted back to try this by a can in Victoria station, promising me memories of watching football matches and uni days. Like any memory, though, the reality just didn't live up to it. This is singularly bad. It's muddled and tangy, with literally none of the things that makes a bitter good. It somehow manages to be cloying and bland, which is actually kind of impressive. This is the Madame Tussauds of beer -- tacky and fake.

Bevuta il 10/09/2017 @LochnessDiscoPub in Benidorm (Spain). Lattina 50cl. Colore rossastro scuro, quasi granata. Bella schiuma cremosa e persistente. Inodore. In bocca dolciastra, mieloso, erbacea. Texture acquosa ma piacevole, grazie alla schiuma che la rende più corposa. Birra che ha poco da dire, ma c'è di peggio. hrabren (1529) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 4, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 0.5 l can from a local shop in Acharavi, Corfu, Greece. Shared with lovely Anja. Hazy amber, creamy medium off-white head. Caramel, grain and metal. Sweet. Bready. Watery, smooth, light finish but unpleasant. 45539=2.6 p0urmeac0ld0ne (208) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 31, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2017 A British institution of sorts, but really not worth the effort. Dishwater malts are accompanied by an unwelcome metallic twang. Avoid. The extra smooth variety is far more drinkable, but lacks in any real flavour after the initial sip. Bijl (811) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2017
Ambergeel, crèmekleurige schuimkraag, niet veel koolzuur en een lichte waas.
Aroma: Karamel, zoetig, iets spicy noble hops, granig.
Smaak: Graan, karamel, iets zoet maar ook een redelijke bitter maar vrij kort. Spicy gehopt, weinig koolzuur.
Lichte body, makkelijk drinkbaar , afdronk bitterzoet. Niets speciaals.
De Extra Smooth is eigenlijk het zelfde maar, zoals op het blik staat, is deze zachter door de nitro. Daardoor ook even minder scherp. JaKeAFC (1283) - ITALY - AUG 11, 2017
John smith extra smooth
50 cl nitro can in malta. Contains glucose and caramel.
Amber color with a wonderful white cream on top. Aroma is light citrus, some glucose stuff, thin, very thin, some hops/grass. Taste light tart, light bitter. Thin body, no carbonation, short bitter finish. Very smooth and Extremely easy to drink but nothing great going on.
