3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 The pour from this beer into a nice pint glass is breathtaking due to the nitrous release in the can when you open it. Everone at the bar was watching as the head made it's performance. The head formed a think, think, layer of head. The smell was not all that impressive, but I was in a smokey bar, so I couldn't make it out that well. The taste was unique. Slightly sweet with a rich flavor aftertaste. Overall it was an interesting brew that added a little variety to my stouty night.

Nice, smooth and creamy. Not much in the way of palate, but very refreshing. Don’t skit ’Boddies.’ As in the lyrics of ’Boddies’ by The Macclads, "20 pints of Boddingtons, every Friday night, 20 pints of Boddingtons, then it’s outside for a fight."

A very nice Honey Aroma and Meady taste. Not normaly a fan of the sweeter beers but this is quite a nice brew.

These english ales - particularly the massive, mass produced ones - are not normally my cup of tea. This is smooth and perhaps a bit bland, but has a nice, bitey, bitter finish. Smooth going down and easy to drink, but I wouldn’t have a lot of it

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweetish malt, coppery aroma and slight tang. Great looking tan body - like scotch. Big foamy off-white head that lasts the whole beer. Low carb with medium body - not oily but not watery. Smooth, low hops, mellow taste with some pleasant bitterness. Modest malts but not sweet. Refreshing beer.

One of my all time favorite beers. On tap is definitely better, and luckily a pub nearby has it. This is an old standby, for sure. Perfect refined bitter flavor for the bitter lover. That’s me.
