3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber colour with rocky off-white head. Caramel malt aroma with a fair amount of spicy hop aroma. Very creamy mouthfeel with a rich malt taste. Some very faint notes of plum/cherry before a mellow toastiness settles in followed by a lingering slightly bitter finish. Not really bitter enough to be a bitter, but very good nonetheless.

Export, 5.5% alc. Clear deep amber. Bready malt aroma, good dose of dusty hops. Deep dark crystal sweetness. Full-bodied, with good goldingsish flavor. Long malty finish closed by a chalky dryness. Excellent.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Little aroma. Lightly hopped for a bitter. Malty flavour, some toffee. A worthy brew but nothing special.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 Bottle: Dark amber with lively head formation. One of my favourite english pints! Just the right balance of delicious malts and gentle lingering hops. Smooth.

Reddish coloured. Weak aroma. Fruity flavour. It tastes of more than the normal Bombardier.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A red beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is dominated by bread combined with notes of fruit. The flavor slightly sour fruity on a background of good roasted bread. This one has a much better palate than the standard Bombardier - this is a lot better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
darker than average for a bitter. reminded me most of Old Fart. raisins, molasses, plenty of goldings + fuggles in flavour but not in finish, which is malty/fruity. well balanced between sweetness, fruit and herbs, i like it.

My first beer to rate here... It wasn't that super. I was hoping for a more powerful taste. I enjoyed it as an alternative to American beers. I did appreciate the new smells and tastes.
