Very enjoyable beer. Lacks alot of the hops because it tastes a little watered down but you can drink these easily all night.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 My interdiction to Boddingtons was in an Irish Bar in the Battery of Charleston South Carolina. The smooth creamy beer with a thick head has a buttery taste that is very filling. It as a distinct taste and the best I can describe this beer, is to say that Boddingtons is like whole milk/Budweiser

From “Pub Draught” can. I guess this is supposed to be an example of an English “session beer,” but it doesn't really rock the american palate. The widget-type bubbler gave a good tall, cascading head (and this from a can that sat in my fridge for two years) that stayed with the beer and left a nice lace on the sides. Could not detect much aroma, which is better than smelling skunky, I guess. English pub style watery mouthfeel was uninspiring, and I couldn't pick up much taste, just a little residual sweetness. Nothing lingers much after the swallow. Nothing terrible, just not inspiring.
This is the same impression I got from the first can in the four-pack I got two years ago, so at least it keeps very well in the fridge.

Creamy head. Nice slow pour, which I have to say is a beautiful thing to watch. I don't know if it's how I cleaned my glass, but for whatever reason this one seems to have a spiral lacing. Reasonable amount of carbonation. Sweet aroma. Flat taste, no real flavor, a little sweet, but very boring. Tastes as though it's watered down.

There is no point to drinking this crap. It is not beer. You can drink it with a fork.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a long lasting creamy large white head of fine to medium sized bubbles. It has a light transparent golden brown body. It also has a mild malty/ hoppy aroma. It had a smooth full bodied hoppy taste with no bit and a slight tartness in its finish. There was nothing special about this brew, but it was just nice none-the-less.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark blond with a small head. Slightly sweet sour aroma. Flat and not very interesting.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer poured a golden color. It had a creamy thick white head to it. The lacing was just so-so on the sides of my mug. It had a fruity aroma to it. The taste was bitter with an aftertaste that lingered longer than I like. Nothing outstanding about this beer. It was just so-so.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color. Creamy head is a bit on the thin side for a nitro-can. Light, slightly bready aroma. Easy drinking. Decent malt profile with a pleasant bit of sweetness. Quietly bitter finish. I tried this head to head with Tetley's English Ale and this is the clear victor.
