Delivered in a pint glass.
A) I always enjoy the way these nitro taps cascade. This is a light amber, with a full finger of creamy white head. The head is maintained for the duration. Nice lacing.
S) Not much on the nose. Perhaps the faint aroma of malt, a slightly fruity sweetness, and a hint of the bitter English hops.
T) A combination of the grainy flavor and bitter hops. I don't find Boddingtons to be as bitter as some of the other English pale ales I've had the pleasure of drinking. There is an underlying sweetness that provides a nice balance for my taste buds. The finish and aftertaste are decent.
M) This is actually kind of thin, despite the appearance. Having
said that, it is also quite creamy. I attribute this somewhat to how well the head is maintained. This provides a nice mixture for every single sip.
O) This is not a great beer, but it is pretty darn good. If you like English pale ales, this one is readily available, and a solid option.

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.
