A legend in the beer world. A distinctly malty bittersweet ale with roast, toffee, and a slight fruitiness. It has a subtle hop and a bitter aftertaste. Available in can, bottle and on draft in pubs.
It's still brewed at the John Smith's Brewery in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, where it enjoys over 250 years of brewing heritage. The original brewery was founded in 1758.
The Tadcaster Brewery has 4,000 solar panels which means 18m pints are brewed by the sun every year.
Over the years, John Smith's has enjoyed some of the most famous beer advertising, featuring stars such as Peter Kay, Jack Dee and Paddy McGuinness. Its down to earth personality, which has earned it legions of fans across the UK, continues to this day. In fact, 228m pints are enjoyed every year in the UK.
