Cask. Golden yellow doby, white head. Aroma has loads of english hops, fruitiness and yoghurt, peach and mango, bisquit malt. Flavour is big with really nice hops, some lactic sourness and bitterness. Toasty malty backbone. Very nice smoothness.

Cask, 4.2% at the brewpub. Fruity berry aroma. Clear yellow colour. Stable creamy chalk white head. The flavour starts off teaish, turning more fruity later. Medium bitterness, very clean. Good, but perhaps too clean.

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2011
(Cask at Gallows Real Ale Festival 2011) The beer poured pale golden and bit muddy. No head. Aroma contained fruitiness, hops and toffee. Palate was medium bodied and dry. Flavours were malts, hops, fruitiness, mustiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. A bit too musty brew for my taste. Aroma was good.

Clear pale golden colour with tiny frothy head. Quite strong fruity bitter hoppiness in aroma. Nice combination of fruity hops, malty body and caramel. Balanced.

Funny. I did not know this was intended to recreate the Boddington’s. I had that on cask in Chinatown, Manchester just about 20 years ago, and it was an excellent beer. This is a bitter in every sense of the word, I’d say it appeals to more experienced palates. An English session beer with an extra load of hops. This could be consumed in large quantities. A countryside pub garden with this on cask would be heavenly.

0.5L bottle bought@Utobeer, London. Tall and foamy snowy white head. Hazed, shimmering yellow body. Dough and white bread on the nose. Also a whiff of grassy/hayish hops. Taste is fairly dry with a clean, doughy and bready malt base. Grassy and faint citrussy hops in the backbone. Light-bodied without being thin. Quite fizzy in the mouth. Short, but fresh and dry ending.

Cask conditioned air dispense Euston Tap London. A golden beer with a big white head. A devilishly lively pour to this beer with a suggestion of shallowing. Hops are present but not massive. There’s a subtle lemon flavour. It’s OK but needs balls. I drank Boddingtons over 20 years ago when it was an indepenant brewery and I have to say my memories of it are better than my experience today.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear yellow with a mild, white head. Doughy malts on the nose with some citrus and straw hops. Lightly sweet with modest, tart citrus and straw bitterness. Light in body with fine, creamy carbonation. Finishes with faint sweetness and lingering earth and resinous hops. Picks up speed late. Pretty good.
