nybol (2354) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2016
En meget klassisk bitter øl. Der er ikke det helt store at sige om den, da den er noget kun almindelig. Og med almindelig mener jeg bitter øl uden det helt store smag ellers. Den har et godt tykt skum som en guiness, men ellers ikke en øl der er værd at køre efter.

On tap at a pub in Gurnard. Simple one with low carbo, some nuts, bit of lemons and malt. Drinkable but dull and watery. Hard to imagine I would have liked a second one.

McTapps (6976) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
On tap at a corner pub on the Isle of Wight (small village beside Cowes). Pours out in a clear deep golden colour with smooth steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, straw, grass, grains, bread and light caramel. Citrus finish. Drinkable but nothing special.

Serapac (551) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 24, 2014
On tap, Euston Thistle bar. Clear golden with a smooth white head. Malty aroma, sweetish malty taste, palate bitter-sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very smooth palate. Highly drinkable. Some more crispyness could add a bit more character and make it even more balanced. Excellent as it is, though.

Tap at latimer place, britain. Light golden color, smooth white head. Smooth sweet aroma, quite light but nice. Basic british bitter taste, light but smooth body, malts and sweetness.

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 7, 2013
This beer is a rich gold color with a creamy head and a mild nose. The beer is extremely smooth with a nice malty flavor and a slight hop dryness. This is a pub classic and you can drink a lot of it due to the low ABV.

beerbaaron (2046) - Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Hazy medium light brown amber. Super creamy off-white head eventually settling to a dense thick large topping. Light malty, caramel, grain, toast. Fair dryness. A bit thin. Clean and easy to drink

humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - APR 12, 2013
(on cask @ Cino Lounge, Hilton Warwick) Pours unclear golden with no head. Aroma is light banana and English hops. Watery texture, soft carbonation, light body and a watery finish. Taste is sweet with a little driy bitterness. Two half pints were enough for a lifetime.

Cantabrian (1161) - Christchurch NZ, now Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2013
I hadn’t had a pint of Boddington’s for ages, so I hardly remembered how mild/weak in flavour and aroma it was. It is certainly made worse when too cold and poured by someone who does not know how to pour.
