2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap in the Griffin, Monmouth, Wales. Boddingtons is a fine example of good beers that have gone down hill since big companies bought them out. I remember when Boddies had a rich creamy flavour and was smooth as it went down. However this time was a very watery pint with a weird bitter hint to it. Appearance is a clear light sunflower colour.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is caramel and biscuity, not to much hops but whats there seems to be for bittering. Taste is similar overly biscuity almost skunky with the hops which dont seem cricket however easily drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of sulphur, some hoppiness. Slightly hazy light amber with a white nitro-style head. Taste is not huge, but malty, some hops, malts carry through, bitter at the end. Pretty stable brew if there’s nothing better.

Have not had this in cask form for many years, this is a VERY pale shadow of its former self. This is thin and lacks on all counts.
