1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Canned & keg a few times. Nitrogen removes any carbonation and with it any thoughts of a natural tasting beer, add to that the Gillette styled (and tasting) head, and it’s not off to a very good start. Soapy and annoying, some coarse bitterness and crude malt. Truly hideous spawn of Interbrew.

Canned. Flat amber beer. Pleasant sticky malt aroma. Sugary malt flavour with moderate bitterness. Not offensive but nothing to rave about either. Just says mass production to me.

Canned. Like real beer, only with all the beer taste and texture taken out. Slippery head (creamy? more like oily yoghurt), insipid taste, dull colour, no bitterness, no refreshment, no point.

Canned. Beautiful creamy head, thin light amber colored body. Weak fruity aroma. Thin and watery flavor with a slight bitterness. The taste is nice but it is way too thin.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2003 On tap in a London hotel bar. I love bitters, but this was a bit weak in the flavor department. Creamy and light bodied. Not my first choice for a British bitter.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slight honeyish malt aroma.
Amber, after the effect of the widget no carbonation left, but the 2 centimeters of creamy head seems to linger on.
A bit strawberries, a bit flowers, but everything seems to be in a extreme homeopathic solution - quite watery.
Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy and there is a very slight flowery aftertaste

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It has a sweet malty creamy aroma with notes of oranges and a little sourness. The color is orange and it has a fine foamy head. The flavor is a creamy malty one, with a note of oranges, in the end it turns a little bitter. A very drinkable and refreshing beer - but not bitter enough for a bitter.

Can. Copper gold, moderate white head,low condition. Low malt aroma with some fruitiness, sweet malt and soft fruit in the mouth with a slight hop flavour and a dry, sharp hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Similar to many "mainstream" bitters, nothing outstanding. Boddingtons was the drink that launched my drinking career, mainly because it was smooth and went down easily. Maybe a good choice for the Stella drinker looking to further their taste, but so many better beers I'm lost as to it's popularity.

Malty candy sugar nose. Little head on the orange-golden brew. Very malty taste. Goes down smoothly. Nice after a beach day at the algarve in Portugal.
