A light, mild beer with a small head. Not bad. The colour is a light amber and the head is very white and friendly. It's a drinkable beer...creamy and smooth. Not overpowering at all. For my money I still prefer Whitbread Pale Ale though. The taste of this beer is not as good as Guinness or Murphy's.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 this stuff was great, very smooth and creamy. not many of my friends enjoyed this, but i certainly did. id like to drink about 12 of these cans and see how i feel. a very good beer, much better than tetleys and the other shit beers. this one is good -rerate- even better on tap. had one at 1130 am and after that i ordered another one because the first one was so good. this is a great brew and its one of my favorites. still a weak aroma though

For such a mellow beer this British Bitter is incredible. We try to get a keg for all our large gatherings; with the N2/CO2 tap you can't go wrong. At our wedding this keg lasted all of 45 minutes (I thankfully got 2 pints), and a party we had of 15 people cleaned a keg out in 24 hours (we had another keg of depicable beer and 5.25 liters of rum, to boot). Not much of a nose, and the light, golden color is unimpressive, but the Buttertons is a drinking beer for all occasions. A lively, buttery, butterscotch flavor is what this beer is all about.

First and foremost, have a large Hefe Weizen glass waiting beside the can! It explodes when you open it, so be quick about pouring it into the glass. After you have waited 3-4 minutes for the head to settle down, you will find a smooth and creamy beer waiting for you. Theres not much of an aroma, but the beer has a smooth texture and wheat like taste. It reminds me of a Hacker Pschor , and the head last all the way down to the bottom of the glass.

Nitro can practically exploded when I popped the top even after sitting still for 15 minutes (maybe there's something to learn about these cans - like avoid them!!!). Poured all foam and took a while to settle, but left a clear golden ale with a thick, creamy white head. Aroma was faint and unfortunately reminded me of the mass produced American lagers. The taste was disappointing for a proclaimed "pub ale" - watery and and lacking in distinction of any sort. Palate is watery and flat - that nitro-fueled head seems to have sucked all of the carbonation out of it. The finish was mildly bitter, which coincidentally describes my feelings about having spent $2.25 on this can of swill.

Nitro Draught (in England): The beer pours a just barely hazy golden color. As you would expect with a nitro beer, it has a thick, dense head of small bubbles. The head does linger awhile. The aroma is a little light, with some hops and malts coming through. Very smooth taste. It is somewhat sweet, with a lightly bitter finish.

A decent beer with somewhat of a wheat flavour. Easy on the palate and goes down smooth. I would not mind trying it again.

"The cream of Manchester" is creamy, 'tis true, but nothing else stands out. Pours with a thick nitrogen head and a straw-colored body. What of the flavor, you ask? Well, frankly, flavor must escape the can upon the pour: Boddington is a smooth drink, but doesn't exactly provide a challenge to the palate.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2008 May, 2003Can at the Arthur Clifford Bar in the Medway Little Theatre. Smooth (but not gassy) - slight metallic hop finish. Not outstanding, but not desperately terrible either. Just lacks any character. Wet air. [1.6]
April, 2008330ml bottle from Shropshire. Vintage 1995. Draughtflow system produces quite a creamy head, but also stirred up some sediment. Has settled reasonably clear. Yugh - this is a disgusting beer. Age has not improved it. It tastes metallic and foul. Soapy cardboard. Stale beer. Ugly. This is probably the first batch to be made - it was made in Strangeways, Manchester in 1994, the year the beer was first introduced. Jesus, it sucks - yet people still buy it! [1.3]
