John Smiths – Cask

WP_20140324_001 What they say: … a malty, bitter sweet ale with a slight fruitiness and a bitter aftertaste…

Hmm. Have had John Smiths a number of times – usually from a can at a party  – from hosts clearly not used to catering for ale drinkers. Occasionally too in it’s gassy extra cold form in a bar that wants to offer a bitter but can’t be arsed with real ale. I’ve always found it fairly insipid and sadly the proper cask version tasted no different – although at least it wasn’t gassy or cold. Cheap enough though and one of several ale on offer at the Old Ebor, a short walk from the Caravan Club site by Rowntree Park in the lovely city of York.
