Nice looker. A bit watery and not much feel in the mouth. Just wanted something else to be there. Thirst quenching on a hot summers day.

Canned widget beer. Golden coloured with a thick, white head. Slight smell of hops. Taste was subdued and thin, some hops again with, as noted below, a metallic finish. Seriously bland.

Pale amber color, creamy off-white head. Sweet, caramelly grassy hoppy aroma. Metallic and nutty flavor and creamy thin mouthfeel. Typical watery nitro/widget ale. Not recommended, not for sauna, not for "sessions".

Letís see...I first discovered this brew on tap in Dunstable U.K....I was blown away!!! A lighter colored beer that could hold itís own with the mighty stout! But...after finding it canned in the states I was really let down! My rating it biased...I combined the two experiences! If you are ever in the U.K. Do everything you can to find this beer! In the states....look elsewhere!

This beer can go from excellent, to undrinkable, depending where you drink it. A good pint is used to be found in Manchester, but like many other beers, brewed elsewhere now. The smell isnít the best, but taste makes up for this. Good ale, tasty beer, fairly smooth. Not too fussed on the cans, other beers taste better in cans.

I was very surprised at Boddingtons, had it in Blackpool, UK and enjoyed every drop, found that the hangovers were minimal the next day and it wasnt too harsh on the pocket
Will drink it again

A better than expected clean bitter with a copacetic creamy long-lasting head. Adumbrations of pear and honey, with an unpresumptuous light medium finish. An enjoyable compliment with spicy bangers and mash.

Creamy short head on this nice fruity bitter ale with some caramel, nice hoppiness with a nice moderate bitterness. Pretty goo beer.
