mmahut (1845) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 25, 2015
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 (1913) - 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...

Mr_Pink_152 (3901) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
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.

Drank as a draught. Not very interesting, slightly sweet taste, not really bitter. I was disappointed.

Dipper (1) - Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014 does not count
Without a doubt the cream of Manchester, and anywhere else; I just can’t get enough of this nectar of the gods. to the extent that my friends are concerned about my behaviour. To my shame I had to travel to the home of this ambrosia rather than attend the Great British Beer Festival 2014. The first sip of this elixir always gives me such a stirring in the pants region that to describe it would mean banning me from this site. Drink it and never look back!!!

allmyvinyl (9540) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2014
440ml can. Pours clear golden, thick foamy head - thanks widget! Aromas are light malt, not much else. Taste is sweet. No carbonation once the widget is spent. Foam head sits on top like an unwelcome marshmallow. Watery and thin. Not great.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma is light sour malt and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor is light caramel malt with a fruity funk. Light/medium bitter and a light sweet finish. A bit thin and watery with good carbonation. Not an ipa but @ 3% ok if that is your thing

Draught @ Holiday Inn Express Dartford, England
Watery earthy bitter. Not very good
