When available on draught, this is one of my all time favorites. Smooth taste and finish. I could drink several of these in one sitting (and have done it).

Draught @ Flanaganís Bermuda: This one pours a clear, light coppery color. There was a finger of a creamy, dense white head. It has a lighter aroma. Light caramel malts, some earthy and floral hops. Taste is good, but definitely on the lighter side. Malty, and a touch sweet. Some earthy and biscuit notes.

On tap at the white lion in Tulsa. Decent drinkable bitter though as with most very little flavor or character.

On nitro at Maherís. Golden color with a lot of creamy head. Aroma is fairly weak, with hints of biscuit, malt, and iron. Taste is sweet biscuit, grass and cream soda. Really smooth finish, but weak-bodied overall.

Pint on tap. Just not that impressive. Thereís nothing off or wrong about it, Iím just not a big fan. Nice creamy palate, though. I have to keep reminding myself not to order this! I keep thinking Iíll come around, but I wonít

NeoHippie2 (993) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Draft, nitro. Amber pour with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is almost non-existent but some watery malts sneak their way through some how. Super weak watery flavor. There really isnít a finish to this beer it just leaves your mouth and what little there is to it is simply gone. Weak.

Boddingtons, innit? Bland foamy bitter. To be fair it's probably nicer than say Tetleys or John Smiths. Not saying much though. It does have a bitter after taste that is unusual in these nitro beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared with McTapps. Simple and easy to go. Some vanilla and hops in the back. High carbo with nice enduring head. Drinkable, non-special piwo. Average from first to last.

McTapps (4083) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Can. Pours out in a clear golden-amber colour with creamy steady head and medium body. Nose of bitter hops. Taste of unripe dull hops, metall, grass, light malt and nuts. Finishes very bitter-metallic what doesnít make the beer really nice. Below average.

Draft. Thick, tall, smooth head. Cloudy yellow color, smooth body, medium, mild taste and easy finish
