Pint Bottle. Brown with a thick head that lasts. The aroma is roasted barley and hops. Sweet and heavy with almost no bitterness. The sweetness is almost to much.

Bottle at Score Sportsbar, Gothenburg, Sweden. My version had 5.2% ABV.
Nice red-brown color, white head. Fresh a bit spicy hoppy scent. Nice bitterness. Taste is fairly mild.

Pump clip marked 5.5% and "English Premium Bitter".
Clear copper to brown color, tan head. Fruity, bread, caramel, malty, chalk taste. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

Not an outstanding bitter, perhaps, but as good as it gets when canned. Some malt and lots of aromatic hops. Very easy drinking and enjoyable on a night when you don’t want anything more complex.
Slightly weaker version availoable in Norway.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 just okay for me. bottled. maybe I will rerate this some time soon. I did enjoy it, but tasted before bottle of ’Landlord’ , and for me this beer took it away from Bomb. Will need to re-visit and have couple of bottles to give it true review.

56,8 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Dark reddish brown colour with a fast disappearing head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Fruity flavour from the hops and hints of caramel. Ends up quite bitterbut in a pleasant way.

Like the Adnams Broadside an excellent English bottled bitter. Pours a nice chesnut brown colour, malty roasted tastes but belanced with some residual caramely sweetness. Very good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very drinkable beer indeed. Aroma is a minimal one, but becomes some caramel malts with a certain spice to it. Taste is alot fuller, with hops cutting into the toffee malts. Not much in the way of bitterness.
