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

From “Pub Draught” can. I guess this is supposed to be an example of an English “session beer,” but it doesn't really rock the american palate. The widget-type bubbler gave a good tall, cascading head (and this from a can that sat in my fridge for two years) that stayed with the beer and left a nice lace on the sides. Could not detect much aroma, which is better than smelling skunky, I guess. English pub style watery mouthfeel was uninspiring, and I couldn't pick up much taste, just a little residual sweetness. Nothing lingers much after the swallow. Nothing terrible, just not inspiring.
This is the same impression I got from the first can in the four-pack I got two years ago, so at least it keeps very well in the fridge.

Creamy head. Nice slow pour, which I have to say is a beautiful thing to watch. I don't know if it's how I cleaned my glass, but for whatever reason this one seems to have a spiral lacing. Reasonable amount of carbonation. Sweet aroma. Flat taste, no real flavor, a little sweet, but very boring. Tastes as though it's watered down.
