Can. Subdued aroma. Dark brown color. Smooth, slightly bitter taste. Similar to Guinness, with peaty flavor and faint carbonation, but tastes better overall than Guinness. Bitter finish. Better than average from a can, which is not saying much.

Can from the lcbo. Thick creamy head, extremely opaque and without bubbles on top of a transparent amber/straw body. Notes of cereal and bread, some sweetness. Extremely oily, watery thin body- sessionable for sure. Some alcohol is present for some warmth.

"definitely prefer the can (or draft) to the bottle for this one. the flavors ok (sweet but kinda boring) either way, but the mouthfeel/smoothness/drinkability are all better draft style."

This beer has become my favorite beer. It has an unbelievable smoothness and head right from the can. After a hot days work the first 16 ounces goes down very quickly, There is a lingering aftertaste that is a minor drawback, but all considered..I am a Boddingtons man.
