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.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 Very creamy everlasting white head, golden honey body. Nice cascade effect like Guinness. Almost no aroma. Body is weak with little to no carbonation. Flavor has a nice malt sweetness to it (honey?) and a smooth finish.

on tap. looked really nice; took nearly 2 minutes to settle and a half inch white head stayed on top the entire time. Great creamy feel on the lips then a smooth pleasant taste. not very bitter at all; which for me is a good thing. I really enjoyed this.

This stuff is not as bad as some have rated it. Certainly not the best available, but it's not bad. Creamy and smooth, probably due to the "nitro device", not much bite, but it's drinkable. Rather have this than a Bud, that's for sure!

Very good flavor. Reminded me of guiness quite a bit, minus the "filling" feeling. Definitely worth a try.

19/4 Can (w/ widget): Pours clear golden yellow w/ tight white head. Very slight visual carbonation after settling. Slightly sweet aroma, though not much of it. No real hop aroma. Initial sweet malty flavour followed by a slightly astringent bitter taste. Not much (if any) hop flavour. Lovely and smooth if drinking through head, if not, thin and bland. Boring overall, though not really bad.

Braudog (6220) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2003
I really like these Boddington's canned nitro-charged beers. This pours with a cascading head just like in the pubs in Britain. It ends up with a still, inviting, dark golden hue. But the nose is a bit grainy. Ultimately this is a smooth, balanced ale, but the flavor is just good, and not great. Recommended for something different though.

Pours with the cool Nitro-type, waterfall head. A clear, golden body with a thick white top. The aroma is bland, as is the flavor for the most part. There is nothing really exciting about this beer. It doesn't taste bad, nor does it taste good. It just tastes and is easy to drink.

Bland nitro crap. No bitterness whatsoever and hop flavour is hardly noticable. Body is thin. Interbrew have done well marketing this beer around the world. Lucky them. Unlucky the drinkers!
