2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Poured a clear medium amber with a medium sized creamy head that was fully lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was very light with notes of sweet bread malts, grainy hops and a and a mild doughy yeast. It tasted mild an slightly bitter from start to finish with the flavor lasting quite a long time. Mouthfeel was watery yet very creamy in texture and light to medium in body. Overall I would have to say the CO-2 disc made all the difference (it rolled up the glass like a Guiness). Although it was very creamy it was a bit to light.
the aroma is fruity and floral with hints of candy, bisquit, grain and fresh apple... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of grain, lollipop. grasses, flowers and garden fruits... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste... cruik (24) - - DEC 24, 2017
Pours clear gold with a creamy foam head. Smell is honey and wet cardboard. The taste is honey and malt with a sweet, ever-so-slightly hoppy finish. It resembles a watery all-day swill, but the sweetness would render the task unpleasant. Chadhami (194) - - DEC 22, 2017
Hadn't had this one in a long time, and was a bit disappointed. Smooth pub ale but little flavor. ALLOVATE (3087) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2017
Wow, how have I overlooked this gem over the past few decades. I thought there was only one miserable shell of a beer called Boddington's. They made an 'Export' version. Why?! Into its own nonic, chilled as recommended. Typical nitro-pour. Settles to a translucent orange gold. Head is off-white and the expected creamy silk. Honey, sweet, bready nose with a hint of buttery popcorn and pear drops. On the palate it is similar to the nose, like a honey and butter sandwich. Sharp metallic note in the back. Finish is cardboard and flabby. Thin and very watery. Sadly easy to quaff. Light bitterness of grass. Nothing else here. Forgettable, like its weaker brother.

Hand pull dispensed to a Boddington logoed pint glass at a farewell gathering for John's Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., showing a lightly hazed, golden hue, with a billowing layer of persistent, creamy froth, and curtainy lacing. The nose was soft grain, dried pit fruit & skins, with a light hint of banana. Light to medium bodied, with low carbonation, the taste was less fruitiness, subtly toasted, some silkiness to the texture, with slight earthy bitterness, and a touch of finishing dryness. A presentable English Pale.

Can. Pours gold with a white head. Mild aroma - maybe some malts and grass? Taste is malt, bread, grass, cardboard. Metallic notes. Mild bitterness. Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 31, 2017
From Nov 2007
This pours from 1 pint can a dull, slightly hazy gold with a solid 2 finger head of foam with lots of lacing. It *is* a nitro can after all. ;^)
The smell has a nose of bitter hops and a touch of honey sweetness.
The taste matches the smell...good hop bitterness(no citrus really, just bitter) with some honey sweetness and some metallic taste. Silky smooth mouthfeel here and it finishes slightly bitter; the finish is actually the only part that I don't fancy too much but over all, this is a pretty good taster and so darn easy to drink. I don't know why I like Boddingtons, I just do and I buy it every so often. nimbleprop (8922) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 2, 2017
On tap at my hotel in Exeter. Pours a hazy dark gold with plenty of creamy, white head. Nose has treacle, honey, malt. Butterscotch. Hmm. Flavor is remarkably drier, malt, toffee chew, honey, dough. Finishes lightly sweet and doughy. PasternaG (20) - St.Petersburg, RUSSIA - OCT 2, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 нравилось раньше мне это пиво. а сейчас недопил даже. жутко неприятное послевкусие, да и пьется не очень. жаль. MacNJ (116) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2017
Haven't had this in ages. Poured into a Guinness pint glass; gorgeous golden hue with a frothy pillow head. Ale smell with a hint of honey. Creamy and refreshing. A slight fruity finish. Cheers!
