I found this creamy with a good body and pretty in the glass. Subtle to the point of banality. Very tiny touches of sweetness lurk. On tap at some chessy-ass mass-marketed brewpub in Tampa.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 The creamy head is amazing, it looks just like a freshly pulled pint when poured into the glass. Has a reminiscence of Guiness, mostly because of the 'pulled affect' caused by that ball of gas in the can. Re-rated after more experience. Very bland, not much of a notable flavor at all, but it is very smooth.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2003 A very well balanced beer. The best thing I have had out of England I think. It looks beautiful and tastes outstanding.

Old friend Boddington and I go way back to when my homebrewing pal, mwendt, introduced it to a summer gathering of my college roomates. It has since become a staple of such gatherings and its creamy, easy drinking quality makes it work well to accompany our adventures. I give this one good marks not only because I remember fondly the days when it represented real beer to me, but also because I find a decent spicy-sweetness here, and just enough hops to keep things interesting.

This beer makes quite an impression! Enormous smooth creamy head atop a golden ale (well, it takes a while, but eventually you see that there’s a golden ale). Sweet aroma and smooth, slightly sweet flavor. Pretty mild beer, no bite to it whatsoever, although there is a trace of bitterness.

Very good beer. Pours with a thick creamy head that lasts longer than the beer, much like Guiness. Nice golden color. Quite a bit of hop, but well balanced. Oh, and as a side note, I dig widget cans.
