Almost all clear, but slightly foggy coppy body. White one finger super fine head that sits forever.
Cherry smell, almost exclusively.
Cherry with a bit of metallic copper aftertaste.
Watery mouthfeel, unfortunately. A little creamier, and this beer would have really nailed it.
The aftertaste really dampens this beer's drinkability. I want to get to a lambic to compliment the sweetness or a hefeweisen to make up for the lack of mouthfeel. Almost there, but not quite.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: nitro-can
