2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The type of English ale I didn’t enjoy before. But when IPAs arrived I was hooked. This is more like the typical ale. Quite nice but nothing special and I might as well have something else.

Bottled. Pour ruby-brown with small tan head that fades quickly to a good lacing for the entirety of drink. Smooth medium body. Mild carbonation. Light aroma of malts and hops. Nice and firm bitterness with light sweetness and sour. Long lasting dry bitter finish on the palate. Quite good.

0,5L can from Eurospar Langnes Tromsø.
"Wells Bombardier English Premium Beer 4,3%".
Bright cocoa foam, tight n standing on an orange-brown or dark amber body,
with some bubbles.
Scents of hops, flowers, fruitiness, hints of shoe-cream.
Tastes dark sweet malts, and some hints of metal.
Metallic aftertaste, but overall very malty, as a "metallic tmavy".
Some smokey bitterness, which is well balanced.
Mouthfeel alright and smooth enough.
