This beer is a rich gold color with a creamy head and a mild nose. The beer is extremely smooth with a nice malty flavor and a slight hop dryness. This is a pub classic and you can drink a lot of it due to the low ABV.

I love this beer. Drank it non-stop when I was in England 2 1/2 years ago. A very popular English bitter that loses something when not on tap.

Very smooth palate. Highly drinkable. Some more crispyness could add a bit more character and make it even more balanced. Excellent as it is, though.

Cask @ Camra National Winter Ale Festival, Manchester, UK 27 Jan 2005
Most likely the last batch from Strangeways in Manchester, thanks to the "beloved" InBev. This sample was very malty. Almost no hops at all. Like a wort boil aroma.7/4/6/4/14 (3.5)
RERATE: Cask @ Railway Buffet Bar, Stalybridge, UK 30 Jan 2005
Sweet, but not as malty as at the festival. Fullbodied grainy aftertaste.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2004
JDW, Stansted Airport. My first ever Boddington cask and Iím very impressed. I fully expected it to be as bland and low quality as the keg, but the "new" cask version is really quite excellent. Delicate floral hops - very fresh with a scintillating tingle of dust. O my!

ADesenberg (597) - Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Draft: it pours a dark, honey, yellow. Creamy with a sweetness that is almost hidden by the light bitterness. Itís a great drinkable beer.

Definitely get this from the cask. Otherwise, itís not worth drinking. From the cask, itís a very good hoppy bitter.
