Creamy with a frothy head. Crisp aftertaste similar to Boddington's, but much like its cohort a real bore.

Nothing special about this one. Mine was served on a nitro tap. It's a very easy drinking beer with no tricks to speak of. I'd just as soon leave it behind the bar.
Earlier Rating: 9/29/2002 Total Score: 2.9
Nitro tap. Very smooth, very little aroma, lightly hopped, slightly fruity. Easy drinking session ale.

Lovely! Nice and creamy, not too bitter, and as the label says, smooth." 'Ave it."

I kinda liked this beer. I can imagine the ínothing specialí reacties; the beer is watery. But however itís appearance is good. Smell is good too, bitter. Bitter, smooth taste. It was kinda good for the moment.

Had it on tap, so I donít know if it was flat or supposed to be that way? Also, I guess I donít understand the concept of making a bitter... then making it extra smooth. My pint was very smooth, along with very flavourless and FLAT finish.
