UPDATED: APR 11, 2018 Creamy thick white head on top of a clear golden body. The aromas were muted, probably by the head. The taste is smooth and mild. And it's more on the bland side. That also makes it highly drinkable Fans of IPAs and other stronger beers may not like it so much. Purchased from my local Bevmo visionthing (5735) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 11, 2018
50cl can (4,6%) from SuperAlko, Tallinn. Pours clear amber to caramel coloured with a creamy white nitro head. Aroma of caramel,malt and ripe fruits with hints of hops and grapes. Medium to moderate sweet and malty with caramel flavour and lightly hoppy finish. Creamy and smooth, but fairly watery. Some bitterness in the finish, but not much. Easy to drink, but quite ordinary.

Great creamy head when poured and nice golden color. Slightly floral, grassy aroma. Slightly bitter, little carbonation, light body, goes down smoothly. Flavor is mild.

the aroma is fruity and floral with hints of candy, bisquit, grain and fresh apple... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of grain, lollipop. grasses, flowers and garden fruits... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste... cruik (72) - - DEC 24, 2017
Pours clear gold with a creamy foam head. Smell is honey and wet cardboard. The taste is honey and malt with a sweet, ever-so-slightly hoppy finish. It resembles a watery all-day swill, but the sweetness would render the task unpleasant.

Hadn't had this one in a long time, and was a bit disappointed. Smooth pub ale but little flavor. ALLOVATE (3109) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2017
Wow, how have I overlooked this gem over the past few decades. I thought there was only one miserable shell of a beer called Boddington's. They made an 'Export' version. Why?! Into its own nonic, chilled as recommended. Typical nitro-pour. Settles to a translucent orange gold. Head is off-white and the expected creamy silk. Honey, sweet, bready nose with a hint of buttery popcorn and pear drops. On the palate it is similar to the nose, like a honey and butter sandwich. Sharp metallic note in the back. Finish is cardboard and flabby. Thin and very watery. Sadly easy to quaff. Light bitterness of grass. Nothing else here. Forgettable, like its weaker brother.

Hand pull dispensed to a Boddington logoed pint glass at a farewell gathering for John's Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., showing a lightly hazed, golden hue, with a billowing layer of persistent, creamy froth, and curtainy lacing. The nose was soft grain, dried pit fruit & skins, with a light hint of banana. Light to medium bodied, with low carbonation, the taste was less fruitiness, subtly toasted, some silkiness to the texture, with slight earthy bitterness, and a touch of finishing dryness. A presentable English Pale. wombat23 (2248) - Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2017
Can. Pours gold with a white head. Mild aroma - maybe some malts and grass? Taste is malt, bread, grass, cardboard. Metallic notes. Mild bitterness. Bitterbill (2113) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 31, 2017
From Nov 2007
This pours from 1 pint can a dull, slightly hazy gold with a solid 2 finger head of foam with lots of lacing. It *is* a nitro can after all. ;^)
The smell has a nose of bitter hops and a touch of honey sweetness.
The taste matches the smell...good hop bitterness(no citrus really, just bitter) with some honey sweetness and some metallic taste. Silky smooth mouthfeel here and it finishes slightly bitter; the finish is actually the only part that I don't fancy too much but over all, this is a pretty good taster and so darn easy to drink. I don't know why I like Boddingtons, I just do and I buy it every so often.
