Not as sweet as normal Bombardier, and so a lot more quaffable. A decent beer with a less heavy taste, nice on occasions, possibly to cleanse the palate after a decent bitter.

sarauckelman (210) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Clear dark amber; minimal cream/tan-colored head. Musty/peaty aroma, not very strong; not very pleasant. Full round body quickly dissipates, and then rises into a sort of skunky aftertaste. Tastes overcarbonated. Not very good.

Mr_Pink_152 (935) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
500ml bottle from Tesco. Golden colour with very wispy white head. little aroma nothing to really say, maybe a touch of malt and hop. Another dull beer from this brewer.

Pretty disappointing. Had expected better. Tastes a bit synthetic and rubbery. Not offensive but I’ll not buy it again. Stick to Badger’s golden ales if this is your kinda thing when buying at the supermarket. ’Hopping Hare’ in particular.

jjsint (873) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Bottle @ Bedford Arms (jazz night!) standard golden brown with a bit of carbonation but almost no head. Slight aroma of caramel, metal and candy corn. Taste is a classic bittersweet, a bit bland but slips down nicely. Tickly carbs add to an otherwise weak mouthfeel. Not one of Charlie Wells’ more adventurous recipes.

McNeillR (1276) - SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2014
Clear golden, wink of a fading head. Sugary nose, odd dankness. Dusty hob nob rich sweet biscuity taste. Finishes clean, listless and sternly malty. Not great, oddly drinkable nonetheless. Very simple stuff.

Bottle, Chameleon, Nottingham

Appearance: Clear amber with 2 finger thick white head. Aroma: Biscuit, yeasty, pepper, floral. Taste: Medium bitter and sweetness with low/medium sourness.

ThirstyBird (1666) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Pours a clear medium yellow with a dense white head. The smell is tart fruit, green apple, grain, bread. The taste is crisp fruit, bread, dry crisp finish. The body is light and the carbonation is fine and smooth.
