Where do you go with a beer like this?
Back in the day, this was an easy to find beer. It was successful. A go to option for many. To be honest, I have no idea why.
Boddies is watery. But not in a washed-out way. You see, the flavour is distinctly like dishwater. And that’s shocking.
There is no occasion where you’d want to get your hands on one of these.
The can deserves a mention. And that’s where it ends.
Avoid at all costs. No beer would be better than this.

Though I was fairly sure this beer wasn’t ever going to shoot the lights out there was a part of me that thought it might actually be OK and pleasant enough to drink.
The reason I was pretty sure no lights were getting shot out is that this is a 3.5% creamflow Bitter and is produced in the absolute bucket load by macro big boys AB InBev.
The reason I thought this might actually be somehow OK was that about 500 years ago when my old man used to pass me one over on Christmas Day, I quite enjoyed it.
Now, I was correct in thinking this wouldn’t be something special. I however was incorrect thinking it may be pleasant enough…
It is a f’ing car crash of a beer. Complete and utter horror show.
How it even got to the score I awarded amazes me but there are some positives I suppose…
The look of the can though not amazing, is pretty iconic and quite cool. The drink itself, though disgusting, is very smooth and if somehow you did enjoy this beer it would be very drinkable because of this.
But in conclusion… it’s utter shit.
