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.

Subtle bitterness from English Challenger hops with color and aromas from Crystal Malt give rich , rounded, biscuity flavor and deep copper color. Plus love the tap with cannon ball on it and the new pint glasses Huzzahh!
