This beer poured a clear golden color with a thick head that formed after the cascading effect of the nitro-can. The smell is a bit floral and malty. The taste is bitter but not overpowering. It is well balanced with the malt. The mouthfeel is full and creamy but not chewy. I find this to be a delightful beer which I have enjoyed on many occasions and hope to do so again.

Beerookie below does amuch better job of describing the appearnce of a Boddington's Pub Ale poured out of a Nitro can, especially the effects of the widget for the twofold foaming. Good carbonation and lacing as well. No bitterness at all, almost too creamy and mild. This makes it an exceptionally easy pint to drink. Wouldn't mind a bit more hoppiness but no problems overall here.

I feel like I'm going against the grain here and rating this somewhat higher than the rest, but I enjoy this beer. Its a blond Guinness. I have no problem with blonds or brunettes (or redheads for that matter). This pours to a very, Guineess-like creamy sideshow and settles into a very, low carbinated thirst-quencher. These go down very quickly.

Well, at perhaps one of the only english pubs in Zug, Switzerland (Mr. Pickwick's), I decided to go for a pint of boddington's, with a very unbiased point of view as, my experiences with brit ales lately have been both very good (newcastle) and very bad.

the pour was a clean, headless bright straw with just some bubbles floating up irregularly. served cold as well. The smell, quite bitter as I've seen in the english, is also a bit sour at the nose. The taste isn't all that good but passes my test. it is not abundant in its bitterness, which i liked, but really is moderate in every sense. It's an alright company for the euro2004 at the pub.

Got this on tap at Fado's in Atlanta.

A: A beautiful golden brown with a huge creamy head. Head stuck with the beer during the entire glass. Good lacing as a result. Great to look at.

S: A smell of sweet malt and hops.

T: Creamy malt with a bit of hoppy after taste. This is beer is a little thinner than expect, but I good beer nontheless.

M: Once again, a bit thin (a little watery). Still has a good creamy texture once you get past the thinness.

D: If you are at a pub that has no micros, its a good choice to break the monotony of Guinness and Newcastle.

Served up on-tap at the Pizza Joint in Evans, GA.

Color was, as far as I could tell in the low lighting, a golden copper-amber, supporting a thick, richly creamy off-white foam.

Not much going on in the nose; perhaps a bit of faintly sweet toffeeish notes, but nothing much beyond that could really be discerned.

Medium-bodied but rich in mouthfeel, though in this case not a virtue, as it is due to a distinct lack of carbonation.

The main flavors that show through on the tongue are a bit of malty sweetness mashed together with some estery notes and a faint grassy hop bitterness. Finish is slightly sweet and mildly dry but doesn't beg for another go.

A pretty easy-drinking brew, but drinkability suffers from the beer's flavor which, while not bad, isn't the most desirable, and the rather flat nature due to lack of carbonation keeps it from really refreshing at all. Overall rather inoffensive, but doesn't leave me screaming -- or whispering, for that matter -- for another round.

Pours clear autumn orange with a pillowy white head. Cream soda like in the aroma, maybe a lightly hopped cream soda. Really mellow flavor, a little bland but the hops do come in late and offer a shot of bitterness if you're looking. Typical mouthfeel for a nitro-can. Chuggable though not really desirable.

This beer poured a golden color. The head was creamy with a white top. The lacing was just so-so on the sides of my mug. It had a fruity aroma to it. It had a bitter taste and it also had a lingering aftertaste. There was nothing outstanding about this particular beer.

Pours clear gold. Nice dense long lasting head. Sweet malty aroma with fruit notes. Mild with a malty flavor. Biscuity. Very light bitterness in the finish, otherwise no real noticable hop flavor. Balanced and mild overall. Low carbonation and creamy texture. Very drinkable. Definitely a session beer.

20 oz. nitro can served rather cold.

The nitro can becomes evident immediately after opening since it is hard not to have this spill on the table. The nitro also creates a think, creamy white head. Very nice lacing. Pours a clear golden/honey color.

The smell is quite light with some detectable malt and that may be all.

The taste has light malt with some hints of tart apples in the back.

It has a nice, light mouthfeel. Very low carbonation with a light body. Quite creamy. Overall, this beer is very drinkable. The low carbonation makes it go down smooth. While it is not a particularly interesting or complex beer, it is a good beer if stuck in a bar with a limited selection and hanging around with friends [that's how I ended up with it].
