Boddingtons is one of the most ubiquitous time-honored of the British imports. This beer was brewed for over 200 years at the Strangeways Brewery in Manchester City. Boddingtons managed to remain an independent brewery until 1989, when it was sold to Whitbread. Eventually, through a series of sales, Boddingtons ended up as just one of the many companies owned by InBev, the largest beverage company in the world.
Boddingtons comes in a nitro can at 4.7% abv. Thanks to the widget, the head is amazingly dense and creamy. It has a clean and crisp flavor with roasted malt and hints of a floral, hoppy bitterness. It has a smooth, creamy, and soft mouthfeel, which is really one of the highlights of canned Boddingtons and just another reason to love the widget. The aftertaste is pleasantly bitter. While this beer is different than most available here in the US, Boddingtons is a beer everyone should try at least once. Cheers!
