Boddington’s is a beer that I thought was very good when I started going outside the realm of mass-produced light beers. Drank it frequently at various bars and restaurants, but lately it seems to be rather lackluster and missing some flavors. Maybe it’s too light? Maybe the body is too thin? Or maybe my taste buds have just expanded a bit. Is it still a drinkable brew? You bet, but instead of ordering one of these I’m looking for a great American Craft Beer or at least a Guinness. Usually around a $7-8 price tag for a four pack.
I do love the can that the beer comes in. Anybody have this on tap? Maybe there would be a taste difference between can and tap.
Purchased at: Hy-Vee; Marion, IA.
Pour: Pale orange pour, nice thick head.
Aroma: Malty, caramel smell.
Taste: Bitter taste, somewhat bready and malty. Too watered down for me.
Recommendation: Not a terrible beer to order, but save the money and get something better. Try maybe a Honker’s Ale, or if you can get your hands on Surly’s bitter. Available pretty much everywhere with a decent selection. Thoughts?
