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: MAR 4, 2016 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. Rerated. 4th march 2016. Bottle served room temp. Full head on poor quickly down to half finger creamy thick mouthfeel which is better than remembered. Actually enjoyed it . Creamy fudge malt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep red-brown, tan head, excellent retention and lacing. Roasted sweet malt and floral hop aromas, faint yeast. Full malt palate with a large hop character and a big bitter finish. One of the better bottled bitters I’ve tried.
