Boddington's Pub Ale

Boddington's is a nice brownish-amber coloured ale brewed in Manchester, England.  It's very clear with a limited amount of carbonation and topped by a thick layer of white head. It contains 4.6% alcohol.  I enjoyed a pint on tap, courtesy of my parents, at a local English pub.
 Boddington's has a very mellow aroma--slightly malty with a hint of sweetness.  I want to say honey, but I might have been swayed by the bee on the glass and beermat.  There is a thin, smooth mouthfeel.  The flavour starts sweetish and builds to a moderately bitter finish. An interesting bitterness that isn't particularly hoppy.  The brew has a fairly metallic taste.
This is a pretty reliable ale.  It's a bit thin and a little low in alcohol content, but it has a subtle, intriguing flavour and a delightfully smooth consistency.  It's an attractive and approachable brew.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
