Poured from a nitro-can into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Cascading head that dissolved into a finger and a half thick white head. Thick and creamy looking. Clear amber body, and fading carbonation. Soapy lacing.

S- Slight smells. Noble hops, golden malts. Nothing leaps out. Not impressive smelling beer.

T- Creamy, easy drinking but nothing stands out. Just...nothing here really.

M- Creamy and smooth. Just what was intended.

O- Not special. I like nitro-cans though.

Love the mouthfeel and the head. Flavor is smooth and easy to drink. Like to drink it when I want something a bit lighter. Even my best friend likes it and she does not typically like beer. She said it is a better alternative to Bud/Bud Light. Basically it's my go-to for something smooth and easy to drink.

A - love the way the nitro can pours. Using a tall glass, it is great to watch the foam climb up from the bottom toward the creamy white head. Lovely golden color.

S - light floral hop notes, slight malty sweetness.

T - Wonderful balance of mild hops with honey-like sweet malt.

M - Very smooth and creamy with extremely low carbonation.

O - This is a different take on the English ordinary bitter and one that I really like. The hop notes are pleasant, but offset wonderfully by the cream sweet maltiness. I'm sure my rating is going to be significantly higher than the average, but I really believe this is an under-appreciated beer.

i like boddingtons, and i dont care what anyone says about it. pours a nice nitro powered cream color from the can, but it does its thing much faster than a guinness, with the whole cascade process lasting just a few seconds. it settles into a nice honey colored liquid with an inch or so of foamy white head. the nose is pretty basic, and frankly quite bland. some english pale malts and thats about it. flavor is light and balanced, low alcohol, and perfect for sessioning. kind of tastes like a pancake. love the mouthfeel on this the most, it foesnt have much carbonation, almost like a cask pour, except that its cold. its real smooth and milky in texture. i could drink these all day. i know its nothing too exciting in terms of flavor, but its a classic beer in my world.
