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.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 I enjoy the widget can, but it is much crisper and flavorfull on tap. Creamy and thick, with just the slightest bitterness at the end. The widget cans are becomming more available here, even at local diners, I suspect this might be brewed stateside now by contract? anybody know?
