2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From “Pub Draught” can. I guess this is supposed to be an example of an English “session beer,” but it doesn't really rock the american palate. The widget-type bubbler gave a good tall, cascading head (and this from a can that sat in my fridge for two years) that stayed with the beer and left a nice lace on the sides. Could not detect much aroma, which is better than smelling skunky, I guess. English pub style watery mouthfeel was uninspiring, and I couldn't pick up much taste, just a little residual sweetness. Nothing lingers much after the swallow. Nothing terrible, just not inspiring.
This is the same impression I got from the first can in the four-pack I got two years ago, so at least it keeps very well in the fridge.

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.
