Cunningham (4324) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2012 Cask in Manchester, England. Bellies full of Boddingtons. A nice pub ale. Golden colour with a creamy off white head. Mild malt and hopp aroma. Also a bit weak flavour, but easy drinkable. You can really fill up your belly.

Keg @ Premier Inn off M6, Carlisle. 051011
Golden, clear, thick nitro head.......Aroma - not much here, very slight malt and hops...Taste of light malts, cereal, bit cardboardy, light bitter, slight bubblegum(?), bland......Palate - smooth, low carb. Finish - same as main flavour, very light bitter, slightly metallic.
Bland and boring but not the worst. Certainly better than the Stella I had the same night.

At tab at hard rock café in London. Delighted to find a beer I had not tasted here, but as expected nothing spectacular. A pretty standard beer, good colour, good head.

Boddington’s practically has a trademark on creaminess, but it is also inoffensive to the point of complete blandness.

AshtonMcCobb (2352) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Draught at Crinan Hotel. Pours pale-golden with some head, some of which hangs about. The nose has apples, lemon and malt. The taste has more malt and apples. The palate is medium bodied and textured, but it doesn’t clean on the end - there’s a malty overhang. Overall, this is drinkable for something so ubiquitous.

greenmanalishi (462) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2011
A smooth, malty beer with little aroma and a not-all-that-developed flavour. Slight hint of toffee. Drinkable when out and about in the Manchester area and finding yourself in a desperate pub, but the blandness and short finish with a slight metallic aftertaste.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 23, 2010
From a draft pour at the Holiday Inn Express here on the Waterfront in Leith (Edinburgh, Scotland) this was a clear amber pour with a fluffy white head and lots of lacing. Nose is weak however, with just a hint of malts and hops. Mouthfeel a bit thin Flavor is caramel malts and some light floral hops. Finish is mildly bitter. Not too much to get excited about here but drinkable.

tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - APR 30, 2010
Pours clear amber with thick and rich white head. Cannot sense much of aroma, weak fruity maybe. Fruity, slight sweetness and hoppyness flavor. Round and lean on palate. Finish is sweet and bitter, nice.

harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2009
Cask at Swan with Two Nicks in Worcester. This is almost comically bad. Hard candy flavour in the mouth and such a pale shadow of its former self. I remember having it in the early 90s and being very impressed with this as a session bitter. Now? Oh dear.
