look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Served in a Nonic glass at the bar in the Jurys Inn, Nottingham.

Appearance: Clear coppery color with a rich thick white foam. Plenty of persistent lacing on the glass as I drank it down, but the foam on top does eventually go to just a thin film.

Smell: Practically nothing. A hint of faint malt, otherwise nothing.

Taste: A very weak British bitter taste, with some metallic notes. The malt is also weak against the bitterness - but not a lot here.

Mouthfeel: Not a lot of carbonation (but that's okay for a British beer) but a bit watery. Nothing really strong going on here.

Drinkability: Ummm....no, I can't have again. Shame that a beer which looks so nice at first turns out to be a let down in all other categories. Oh well.

Serving type: on-tap

Draught @ Flanagan’s Bermuda: This one pours a clear, light coppery color. There was a finger of a creamy, dense white head. It has a lighter aroma. Light caramel malts, some earthy and floral hops. Taste is good, but definitely on the lighter side. Malty, and a touch sweet. Some earthy and biscuit notes.

I like English Bitter. I spent a lot of pub time during my time in England and Boddington's is a favorite in Manchester and in other areas of England. I found it on draught here at the Cock And Bull Pub on Mainstrasse in Covington, KY and have been enjoying it since. On a hot day you can sit outside and the creamy mellow taste cools you down. Anyone who reads my reviews knows I am an avid Half and Half drinker and I like this with Guiness Draught layered in the English pint. Nice for sitting around and having a chat. But on its own, nicely done. It's served at Old Trafford for all you United Fans. Cheers, mate.

Not an impressive beer.

Appearance looked good in the glass...clear, about a 1/2 inch head.

No distinct aroma.

Taste was okay...a little creamy.

Mouthfeel was also a bit creamy.

Overall...less than an average bitter. I wouldn't purchase it again.

Serving type: nitro-can

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours dark amber with a very small white head.
Restrained aroma but includes honey, toffee and faint herbal hops.
Similar flavours, very restrained, but a bit of honey and faint cardboard is noticeable.
Watery body. Needs more carbonation.
Boring but not unpleasant.
