Copper hue with a tight nitro head. Settled to less than a finger. Rocking the glass, the beer looks soppy.

Sweet grain, corn, light husky aroma. A little watery. Not entirely absent of hops, but they're barely there.

Picking up the corn again, but there's a light tea element. Slightly watered down taste. Grain notes have staleness. Hops are hard to find. Lightly bitter, at first, but picks up a phenolic astringency toward the end.

Okay feel with some milkiness, thanks to the widget. Carbonation does well, while the body seems a little too light.

Boddingtons is not as good as some of the others in its class, but it's a classic pub ale, nonetheless.
