3/8 inch head... very light brown layer on bottom with a bubbly-ish layer above the tan-line that's white mixed with something a bit darker than the lowest level, and then the very long lasting head. Head mostly stays and the two layers merge to an even prettier transparent brown (that's a bit darker than it started). A beautiful beer to watch settle.
Smells like it tastes.
An interesting choice if your only other nitro was a Guinness because, except for the nitro, they are of course nothing alike.
Innocuous in the way that we thought Newcastle was. Definitely nothing at all of the extra bite/kick of something like Hobgoblin.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Not horrible, just one-dimensional with a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste. Thin, as if a more flavorful ale was watered-down some. That said, Boddy was one of the beers that helped move me away from American macros many years ago, so some credit for that. Unfortunately, there are so many other more flavorful products on the market today. What was interesting 20+ years ago is unremarkable today. I read the review by kerouac from California and I think he nailed it; an easy beer to session.
