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.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2004 Dark amber body, tall foamy off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, nut and toffee; Delicious. Fruity, malty and spicy flavor with a nice bitter finish. A very nice and tastefull bitter and better than the 4,3% ABV version!

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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep, dark ruby body with a light tan, frothy head that lasts. As is recedes, it leaves some lacing. Very visually inviting. Mild nose that I found unable to analyze. Good, rich flavor that left me wanting more.

Bottle. Brilliant, clear copper/amber body with a thick, tan head. Nuts, whole grains, toffee and chewy malts. Quite malty with some dark, ripe fruits hinted at toward the back. Tremendous malt character provides for a smooth body and creamy finish. Tasty, chewy and gloriously malty. A very tasty bitter.
