I've drank this beer over all my life
And though I have had exceptional cask pints at a semi rural pub that would have got near five marks but this is the cheap knock off nitro can

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.

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.
