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.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 Golden in color with a rich smooth had. Fruity aroma, somewhat sweet. Light bitter.

"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]

On tap at Yogi's. Golden yellow with nice big creamy head and good lace. While a light aroma, I can detect a fruity, buttery, and piney characteristics. Lemony and buttery smooth taste, lingers on the palate. A good session beer which is better on tap.

Very enjoyable beer. Lacks alot of the hops because it tastes a little watered down but you can drink these easily all night.

on tap- very smooth and creamy. Very light and esy to drink not too hoppy.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 My interdiction to Boddingtons was in an Irish Bar in the Battery of Charleston South Carolina. The smooth creamy beer with a thick head has a buttery taste that is very filling. It as a distinct taste and the best I can describe this beer, is to say that Boddingtons is like whole milk/Budweiser
