Pours a clear brass with a creamy head. Aroma is mild with hints of caramel and traditional hops. Taste is balanced but a touch bitter. Mild caramel, bread, toffee, and a touch of earthy hops. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a mildly dry finish. Overall an ok beer.

One of those "used to be better before InBev" beers. Fantastic looks when ut pours white and fades into amber. Then it disappoints you, some initial taste of malts and caramel that quickly changes into dirty water.

Alors là les enfants, on attaque une catégorie à part ! La bière est parfois compatible avec la conduite d’engins motorisés, isn’it? Avec boddington’s ? votre famille vous remerciera? thanks daddy to don’ t drink as usual" c?est crémeux, ça passe tout seul, ...un peu d?Angleterre en canette...sans bobos à la tête.

It looks fantastic when you pour it - creamy and golden. There is an initial pleasant taste of malty toastiness. I think the trick is not to drink it too fast i.e. take a sip then wait a while before you drink any more and you can get the pleasant initial taste again. If you drink it too fast, you are just left with a glass of water, the taste goes completely. But who’s going to take one sip every couple of minutes? It wouldn’t be worth the wait anyway, in truth. The overall flavour on the palate is like bitter water. Disappointing.

Pint on tap at Glyntwrog Inn, Llanrug. No aroma, pale amber beer with small tight white head. Very watery with slight hop/ malt finish, uninspiring. I used to drink Boddingtons with my grandfather over thirty years ago, this is NOT the same beer.

Not a particuarily good brew, I hadn’t had it and upon trying it I was disappointed. I found it to be bitter in a bad way, lacking a good balance of flavor, or even a pleasing flavor. Alas, all is not lost because I had it at legoland windsor resort only beer on draught

Can. Pours in clear amber body with very creamy white head, quick avalanche effect. Aroma has caramel, grainy, hay. Taste has grainy medium sweetness with low earthy bitterness, pretty odd hay after taste. Body is full, medium to low carbonation.

Kita (1462) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 24, 2015
Can, pint. Clear pale amber color with medium creamy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is mild malty, grassy and bready. Taste starts with smooth and moderate sweet malt with toffee and caramel following and mild bitter finish. Light body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Incredibly smooth, but boring, too...

part of 2014 backlog. Dull beer. with a golden colour and a thick creamy head, that killed any real aroma. taste was sweet, not the best.

I happen to like boddingtons. Smooth and sweet yet also light. Makes for a good session beer.
