3/5  rDev -21.1%

Appearance: stylish bottle; copper-colored translucent, oily liquid, good training dense, full bodied foam. Aroma: excuse me, but I felt nothing ... Taste: hop bitterness, wood, reminded me whiskey. Alcohol is properly inserted, leaving the taste for hops.

Dark amber, clear beer. The head starts at a good size but fades quickly.

Aromas are malty, bready with caramel notes, plus earthy hops.

Sharp notes of earthy English hops in the taste, supported by semisweet bready malts.

Medium bodied, with a spicy aftertaste.

Very nice bitter.

I just love English beer, so I might be a bit prejudiced. Lovely, malty brew. Deep color. Smooth malt with enough hops to make it what it's supposed to be. I've bought up all the Bombardier that Beer Run had.
