2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Cask at GBBF 2005] A hazy orange beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with a light buttery notes to it too. The flavor is slighlty buttery combined with a good hop presence, leading to a dry bitter end. The body is thin. I’m wondering, if the butter is supposed to be there?

When I was doing my master’s the public library in Halifax had a copy of the first ever Pocket Guide to Beer. It was in the reference section, so I couldn’t take it out. I tried to steal it, but that didn’t get very far. One of the most interesting things about that first edition is that Boddington’s was rated ****1/2 out of five. Today it gets * out of four. What happened? Big brewery magic. Well, Marble Arch has decided to recreate the old Boddington’s, the one that only Mancunians would know about...here it is. Pale, quite dry, lots of hops, but underlying as opposed to up front. Good, quenching pint.
