(on cask @ Cino Lounge, Hilton Warwick) Pours unclear golden with no head. Aroma is light banana and English hops. Watery texture, soft carbonation, light body and a watery finish. Taste is sweet with a little driy bitterness. Two half pints were enough for a lifetime.

I hadn’t had a pint of Boddington’s for ages, so I hardly remembered how mild/weak in flavour and aroma it was. It is certainly made worse when too cold and poured by someone who does not know how to pour.

A beer I drank as a teenager, which you don’t see around these parts much any more. I remember it being pretty standard stuff, nothing to rave about.

Golden. Lasting head. Nothing special about the aroma. Very slight bitter finish. Very sessionable.

This is smooth, easy drinking. Slips down without interfering with tastebuds in an either positive or negative way.

First tasted this bitter way back in the late eighties and was quite popular in many pub group eateries in central Scotland. A bit rarer to find now though? Tasted this in the Hungry Monk, Lochwinnoch in May 1990. Cask, handpump dispense. Sparkling clear gold in colour with a very thick creamy white head. Slight aromatic hop aroma and good refreshing mouth feel. Sweetish taste which continues through into the mellow finish. A good summer session ale.

easy drinking. looks like a ’proper’ pint should. there’s not a lot going on in the flavour or aroma department. slightly bitter finish with gentle malty flavour. slides down very easily without really challenging the senses. tap @ white lion. clifton. bristol

A light blonde ale with a really thick creamy white head, don’t see that everyday. The beer goes down well but leaves a bit of bitter orange lingering.

Draught in Holiday Inn, Reading. Only beer that looked relatively drinkable. Golden colour with thick creamy head. Some citrus nose but not much. Flavour has some malt in it.
