The Creamy Beer in the Gold Can

 

When you think of a creamy headed beer, I’m sure Guinness is the first beer that comes to mind – but Boddingtons is just as creamy and even more delicious, in my opinion!  Served in a big yellow can, this English Bitter is full of flavor and has been around since 1778.

I first discovered Boddingtons about ten years ago, when I was looking for canned beer to take on a tubing trip (no glass allowed).  I was pleasantly surprised by the creaminess but sharp bite that this beer packed into a can; I totally expected it to taste like some generic lager.  Just in case you’re curious, I also picked up Guinness and Youngs Double Chocolate Stout (can you say “YUMMY”??).  I know I’ve mentioned before that canned beers have come a long way, but I do still enjoy this classic!
