Not good, in my opinion. Tastes like Foster's Special Bitter. Little hops, no malt flavor. You're left with only a bitter bite and sour taste. This beer is saved only by the gimicky, (Guiness-like) artificial head. Looks beautiful. If only it tasted as good as it looks. Smells like barf.

Brown, not much head. Much too yeasty and with a bitter finish. Really bad, I could not finish it.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2003 RE-RATE: This can was fresh, so I guess this one deserves a second chance. Creamy, with a lasting head. Aroma is hoppy, some citrus. Mild, a little watery. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Dark golden beer with a decent head. A clear yeasty aroma, and there is yeast in the flavor as well. Not fresh at all, was this one really the way it is supposed to be?

Nice appearance with a nice thick head. Very subtle aroma of malt and a taste of malt and a touch of nut. That beer is smooth and milky. A good beer to drink at the pub while chatting, but not the kind of beer you drink at home.

This beer struck as rather strange after the pour. I couldnt get over that thick head, it was unlike anything I had ever seen. Very creamy and milky, long lasting, and absolutely covered the wall of the glass. The actual beer was nothing special. Very lacking taste, no hops, just a sweet taste of honey or a faint vanilla taste. This beer left me wiht no reason to drink it again, it was completely neutral and didnt move me either way. Not bad, but not good. Bland and average.

Well my rating will be lower than the average on this beer I can see already. I thoutht this beer was wattery, with little flavor and not worth the calories for sure. Now with that being said, it did have a nice appearance as it had a huge and lasting white creamy head. The aroma was light at best with a hint of malt. This had a hint of vanilla and some sweetness. All in all the visual apsects of the beer were much better than the taste.

This is an accessible ale available almost everywhere. The widget gives a distinctive creamy nitrogenous head above a pleasant pale colour. Hop presence is minimal as is real body, but still this Boddy is not a bad beer.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2003
From can, beer pours (in Hoegaarden glass) a white milk giving way to an applejuice (piss, read 'urine')-golden colored liquid with milky, creamy white head. Aroma is of creamy malt with slight straw, grass which doesn't automatically score low, but does anyway. Flavor is malty with a twinge of oh-so-light bitter ending. Very nice. Consistency is like water - a very thin liquid. Finally, a great blonde beer. Didn't think there were any other than Corsendonk Pale Ale. If dark beers make you skittish - pick this blonde up!! Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

With the smooth, creamy texture of a stout, but much lighter in many other ways. Especially, this beer has a surprisingly soft aroma. Very drinkable.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2003 On tap: caramelic nose from a pale sunny beverage. Nitrogen mouthfeel, light, creamy, pleasant and very bitter. Interesting, but just as an evening starter.
