(Epcot Center – Rose & Crown) Nitro… Clear amber ale with a large, creamy, white head. Lasting retention. The aroma is soapy and grainy – toasted barley. Medium-bodied and creamy with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor leans bitter and toasty with a mild apple ester. Finishes crisp with a snappy hop jolt. Disney really knows how to keep those taps and lines clean.

Uma cerveja regular com espuma cremosa! Um leve amargor, mas nada que atrapalhe sua leveza. Por ter uma abelhinha no rótulo, esperava algo doce, mas não. Sabores e aromas bem característicos, sem grandes notas transcendentais. Mas difere-se das comerciais pela cremosidade.

Gurthnar (2762) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 30, 2013
Can. Aroma mild. Mushrooms, rotting ground. Clear golden colour. Taste is plain bitter. Body thin, watery. Hoppy earthy flavour. Poorly drinkable. Not recommended.

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).

boto (1941) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Draught @ Flanagan’s 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.

pdx77 (1469) - Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2013
On nitro at Maher’s. 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.

Caytinator (999) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pint on tap. Just not that impressive. There’s nothing off or wrong about it, I’m just not a big fan. Nice creamy palate, though. I have to keep reminding myself not to order this! I keep thinking I’ll come around, but I won’t

NeoHippie2 (1074) - 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 isn’t 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
