Nitro can. Pours a medium copper colored brew with a thick off white head. The nose has tea and apples. There was also some bread. This tasted of tea and toffee. There was a dry dusty finish. Actually this was decent but a little bland.
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.

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. Arek (1211) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - DEC 20, 2016
29.10.12: Piwo o bursztynowej barwie z fajną, choć trochę nie trwałą w wersji Original i bardzo puszystą w wersji Smooth, pianą. W smaku jest to bardzo dobry klasyczny angielski bitter... nawet nie zbyt goryczkowy... taki w sam raz. Bijl (810) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2016

Appearance: Clear dark golden color. Minimal, white head.
Taste: Medium sweet, malty, toasty, light caramel, light bitter.
Palate: Medium body. Long light bitter finish.
Overall: Average Bitter.
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). wheresthepath (2395) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2016
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. gam (4078) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2016

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.
