It’s a stronger version of Boddington’s Bitter. This one having the strength of a best bitter. It has nitrogen/C02 induced carbonation which makes it creamy and smooth but gives it the impression of being more filling. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate bitterness for balance and some ale fruitiness, but little or no hop flavours or aroma.
Earlier Rating: 9/12/2002 Total Score: 3.1
It<s a nitro driven bitter. The nitro distracts from the style, but overall, the usual bitter flavours are still there, reasonably hoppy, light, and very drinkable - though the nitro driven creaminess distracts from this. Where it gains is through the appearance: stylistically golden but with millions of tiny little bubbles cascading and rising to a creamy thick resilient head.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2002
Pours a dry ginger amber clear under a medium size very fine bubbles lasting cream coloured head. Faint bitter hops and floor polish/paint thinner aroma becoming staler as it warms. Medium creamy smooth body. Medium to light typical watery Brit bitter type palate and body. Soft buttery bitter sweet aftertaste. At least its better than the draft which I though was pretty awful

Head is initially small, creamy, white, fully lasting. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of butterscotch. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, lightly astringent.

I had this in the can, and didn’t like it at all. I will admit that it had a creamy palate, but there was an overwhelming metallic aftertaste that ruined it for me.

Very creamy and drinkable. It’s better out of the tap instead of a can. There is a bar in San Diego that is sort of name after Boddington’s (it’s called the Honey Bee Hive).

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2002
Lifeless stuff, pretty much lacking in any kind of flavor, and has the body of water with little carbonation. The body in and of itself is not the major problem though, as pointed out before it could be like a good cask-conditioned ale if it had some more flavor.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 26, 2002
This is an easy drinking bitter thanks to the CO2 ala guiness.

tastes like water with a slight hoppy flavor

popilius (61) - Chicagoland, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2004 This is smooth and languid, and has the distinctive English taste. Not a great head of out the can, and a litte sweet. The finish is certainly bitter, and that same aftertaste carries. Consistently pleasant.

Nice creamy and surprisingly sweet bitter which is best when somewhere between cool and room temperature - too cold and its smoothness is cut too much.
