3.53/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: That cascading draught pour never disappoints! You are left with a deep golden brew with great clarity and a white pillow of head on top.

Aroma: Some caramel malt. Not much here but nothing bad.

Taste: Nice smoothness up front due to the creamy head. No hops in here but a good grain presence. Slight toasty flavor but mostly caramel malt.

Mouthfeel: Real creamy feel (due to the nitrogen widget). High drinkability and lighter side of medium bodied.

Final Thoughts: I can understand why this beer isn't highly rated but I think it deserves credit for being very unique (at least for those of us who live in the US). It would be the perfect session beer for an evening in a British pub. Although it doesn't have much flavor to offer, there is nothing off about the taste.

Serving type: nitro-can

3/5  rDev -6%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Not horrible, just one-dimensional with a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste. Thin, as if a more flavorful ale was watered-down some. That said, Boddy was one of the beers that helped move me away from American macros many years ago, so some credit for that. Unfortunately, there are so many other more flavorful products on the market today. What was interesting 20+ years ago is unremarkable today. I read the review by kerouac from California and I think he nailed it; an easy beer to session.
