A poor bitter held with low regard in the u.k. Personally I can't stomach the stuff, it has a flavour I can only describe as 'vinegar like'.

A fairly flavourless beer, which lacks really depth or strength. Quite smooth, but not a drink i'd quickly return too.

This beer was once THE best bitter in the UK. In the late 1960's and the early 70's Bodington's beer was always on form with a creamy body and some power around 4.8% That was then, today the stuff is weak, insipid and if John Boddington is reading this then GET IT SORTED LAD. I have to say I mourn the loss of a valued friend and the brewers killed it. Be ashamed, be very ashamed: this was an institution murdered by big business.

Too creamy, leaves an unpleasant after taste................................

I forgot I even drank this. But that was during Iron Liver Session #2, which featured a trailorload of wonderful English ales, and this was very much an afterthought.

My favorite from the English bitter family. Lucky for me I have an English friend who has it shipped in on occassion. Very creamy head with a gentle finish. An excellent example of a true English bitter!

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Smooth, milky, fairly light. Mostly sweet, chocolatey, could use a little bitterness. Impressive daft flow from can, low on carbonation.

Lucky for me that i have two friends who fly to Europe at least once a month, so they allways bring me back a bottle or two of some English or European beer. Top notch as a Cream Stout goes, smooth, decent malts and a fair hop bite, with a great huge head on the pour and a wonderful aroma.
