UPDATED: NOV 18, 2015 It looks fantastic when you pour it - creamy and golden. There is an initial pleasant taste of malty toastiness. However, the overall flavour is like bitter water. Disappointing.

TedE (1106) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2015
Pint on tap at Glyntwrog Inn, Llanrug. No aroma, pale amber beer with small tight white head. Very watery with slight hop/ malt finish, uninspiring. I used to drink Boddingtons with my grandfather over thirty years ago, this is NOT the same beer.

Not a particuarily good brew, I hadnt had it and upon trying it I was disappointed. I found it to be bitter in a bad way, lacking a good balance of flavor, or even a pleasing flavor. Alas, all is not lost because I had it at legoland windsor resort only beer on draught

mmahut (1854) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 25, 2015
Can. Pours in clear amber body with very creamy white head, quick avalanche effect. Aroma has caramel, grainy, hay. Taste has grainy medium sweetness with low earthy bitterness, pretty odd hay after taste. Body is full, medium to low carbonation.

Kita (1987) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 24, 2015
Can, pint. Clear pale amber color with medium creamy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is mild malty, grassy and bready. Taste starts with smooth and moderate sweet malt with toffee and caramel following and mild bitter finish. Light body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Incredibly smooth, but boring, too...

Mr_Pink_152 (4205) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
part of 2014 backlog. Dull beer. with a golden colour and a thick creamy head, that killed any real aroma. taste was sweet, not the best.

I happen to like boddingtons. Smooth and sweet yet also light. Makes for a good session beer.

Drank as a draught. Not very interesting, slightly sweet taste, not really bitter. I was disappointed.

Dipper (1) - Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014 does not count
Without a doubt the cream of Manchester, and anywhere else; I just cant get enough of this nectar of the gods. to the extent that my friends are concerned about my behaviour. To my shame I had to travel to the home of this ambrosia rather than attend the Great British Beer Festival 2014. The first sip of this elixir always gives me such a stirring in the pants region that to describe it would mean banning me from this site. Drink it and never look back!!!

Tap at Premier Inn Euston; clear amber pour with a creamy white head, malt aroma, taste has caramel with a hint of bitterness, and some malt.
