This is deliciously smooth. This can both be a fantastic desert beer or a session beer. Only drawback is the price.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a frothy off white head that stays for days. Smells like a circus peanut (think artificial banana). Taste has lingering honey sweetness and light banana flavor. Grassy hops. Finish is light and crisp. Mouthfeel is smooth. Nitro beer always reminds me of flat soda so there's an adjustment to that. Overall is good. Not great.

Picked this on tap in a pub earlier tonight. The waitress described it as a cream ale and certainly felt more than a pale ale. which explains why there was little bitterness to it. Deep amber colour matched with nice lacing that kept its form. Fruity/caramel smell. Very smooth but no distinctive character to it. Pretty good if not tame. Its appearance was its best asset.

I’m pretty new to beer as a hobby. This Pub Ale from Boddingtons is top notch though!
It pours extremely well once you learn how to, a large head due to the ball inside, but that’s where the magic is!
This is the creamiest and smoothest beer I have ever tried.

Pours a dull light orange with one finger nitro white head. Looks nice during the pour though. Smell: a bit buttery, mildly fruity - apple and unripe nectarine, bready note. Taste: moderately fruity, buttered and slightly burnt popcorn, light caramel, mildly earthy. Light bodied. Nitro creaminess upfront fades quickly, gets watery, drying finish. Grabbed one on a whim after about 12 years. Pretty forgettable, comes off more like a "euro" cream ale than a pale ale.

Beautiful to look at poured into a pint glass. Light caramel color and fluffy head. Taste is a cross between euro skunk lager and Guiness. Weird and not very enjoyable.

Huge let down! Looks great, nice fluffy head very creamy beautiful Golden body and the smell is intoxicating. I smell a great deal of banana or banana bread, I was really excited to try it. The taste starts off like a very rich pub ale and then dissipates quickly into a metallic watery disappointment. So, all things considered it is drinkable, and for the style it is definitely tolerable, problem is that it gets your hopes up.
