As I was posting on Twitter about my new love for another beer that I’ll leave unnamed, someone recommended for me to try this one. He said Boddingtons Pub Ale is his “go to” beer.
So, of course, in my next venture out to liquor store I picked up a 4 pack.
The first time I tried it, I wasn’t able to determine much because I was silly and drank a very hoppy, delicious beer prior, so my taste buds were not able to recognize if it had any good qualities. All I could tell was that it was extremely creamy and seemed to be very bland.
Now I’m in the process of drinking one again and I’m getting the same results. Not much to brag about. No flavors that burst and make you really enjoy this brew. Just a very bland beer with a creamy head. Not very high in alcohol content, I believe it’s 4.7.
It’s a pretty disappointing beer.
I do enjoy ales, lagers etc., I’m just more of a hops guy I guess. I need to have some flavor that jumps out at me while I’m drinking a beer. This brew just doesn’t have any of those qualities.
I can’t see myself ever picking this up again.
Everyone has their preference of beer, but this one just isn’t for me.
Overall: I give it 1 outta 5 Kegs
