I bought a pack of these unpretentious cans on holiday in Cornwall, as there wasn't much choice in the small Co-op. I could have had John Smiths Extra Smooth, but I'm not a fan of the smooth creamy head on my pint. It's shame that Cornwall seems to be one of those areas that puts the cream-flow spouts on their draught beer taps, like they do up North. A classic way to ruin a perfectly good pint if you ask me.

There's not much to say for this very straightforward bitter – it's got good colour and a decent enough flavour, but it's very one-dimensional with pretty much zero in the way of extra interesting tastes coming through other than the basic bitterness. A good cheap beer to keep in for light mid-week requirements, but I find Greene King IPA fills that role better.
