this is definalty the smoothest beer ever. It has so much cream in it that it goes down like a milk shake. Not to exciting to taste though.

I agree the creamy head is there, very light body and watery. Weak not much flavor, too expensive and not worth it.

I drank a lot of this one during my beer hiatus, when I was drinking wine. Very fruity, creamy ale which every bar serves too cold. Nothing terribly interesting in the hops department, but fun to slug down with friends.

Very smooth, and not very bitter. I like it.

Bland and tasteless. Interbrew ruined this beer.

Ive had worse, and certainly would choose this over many other beers. Nevertheless, its too smooth, not idiosyncratic enough. Its overwhelmed by my preferred beer-drinking snack of Bread and Cheese, although I suppose if I substituted store-brand Colby Jack for my more usual farmhouse Cheddar or Shropshire Blue, it might come through...

Darker gold color, large creamy head. An English ale, mild taste, some hop bitterness. Full flavor, full body. Mouthfeel is creamy, full and round. Some malt sweetness. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is very slightly bitter.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2002
Overpriced and under flovaroed. Not a pub draught that is worth the PUBlicity. I dont like this ale. Smooth and creamy, true, but not a good aftertaste.

I really enjoyed the creamy head and texture. Sensed kind of a nutty flavor. Watchin the frothy beer settle into its thinner state was truly a pleasure. *Something noteworthy. Just remembered from last night that I gave the bartender a fiver and he gave me $5.25 change. Not bad for your first legal beer at the bar ever. Its a good sign.

Its a stronger version of Boddingtons Bitter. This one having the strength of a best bitter. It has nitrogen/C02 induced carbonation which makes it creamy and smooth but gives it the impression of being more filling. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate bitterness for balance and some ale fruitiness, but little or no hop flavours or aroma.
Earlier Rating: 9/12/2002 Total Score: 3.1
It<s a nitro driven bitter. The nitro distracts from the style, but overall, the usual bitter flavours are still there, reasonably hoppy, light, and very drinkable - though the nitro driven creaminess distracts from this. Where it gains is through the appearance: stylistically golden but with millions of tiny little bubbles cascading and rising to a creamy thick resilient head.
