Boddingtons bitter draft.

440 ml nitro can served fairly cold into a glass. Advertised as 3.5% ABV.

Appearance - clear copper color, with a nice dense finger of frothy white head. The beer started cloudy but clears as the head forms and the extra carbonation completes it's ascent to the head. Nice retention and some good lacing.

Smell - nice malt bill that is light yet contains some faint floral aroma, and a goodly amount of grain.

Taste - mild bitterness mixed in with the grainy flavours. Watery tasting too, and while not bad for a bitter, it's even a bit more watery than most.

Mouthfeel - decadent and creamy, due tithe nitro cans. At the same time underneath that a light bodied and even thin beer (owing to the higher amount of water in this beer). Clean finish.

Overall - decent bitter that is very drinkable and easy to quaff. Better bitters exist but this isn't bad either.

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.

1/5  rDev -65.9%

Appearance: Pale Copper; medium frothy head, long lasting

Aroma: Light malt; bready; slight citrus; not much aroma

Taste: Very thin throughout; not much flavor at all; almost like drinking water; horrible

Remarks: Came in a nitro Can; I don't particularly like the results from these cans

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

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.
