Very pale Maris Otter Malt and traditional English Goldings hops replicate the original pale bitter. Bitterness is robust but well rounded with a spicy peppery finish and heady alcohol esters.

Bombay 106, named for a British light infantry regiment, is a healthy 7% abv and hopped with masses of Goldings according to the advertising blurb. The Goldings are very much the star of the show here, big, hefty dollops of spice and a citrus note like Seville oranges. Backed with a firm malty body which means the hops don’t run away with it all. The finish is long and dry with just a hint of sherbet in there for fun.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2014
50cl bottle pours with a clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supporting an off white head. The aroma offers up big floral hops, some spicy hops, a big spicy oak sensation and mild malt sweetness. The taste is similar starting with floral hops and a touch citrus of and then heading firmly into robust spicy oak. To midway a modest grassiness joins to add some depth. Thinly ringed at the edge is a faint hard candy fruit note that doesn’t take anything away or add anything to the experience. Nice spicy wood flavored bitter hoppy brew.
