Brewed by:
Wells & Young's Ltd
England, United Kingdom

Style: English Bitter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Loaded with distinct English brilliance, Bombardier is the very epitome of impeccable taste and great character and the full-bodied nectar is a lingering reward – English, ever reliable and damned tasty!

Brewed with naturally accredited mineral water, Bombardier has a rich, tempting aroma of peppery hops and raisins, while the palate is dominated by more dark fruit, juicy malt and tangy hops. Bang On!

The copper hued delicacy of Bedford. Bombardier… Bedford’s finest. Huzzah!

On tap. Seemed to have managed to extract any vestiges of taste from the beer. Flat and lifeless

Pulled (cask) into an imperial nonic pint glass at the Borbardier Pub in Paris.

Appearance - A nice orange color. Great clarity. A nice lumpy hear that sticks around for a bit. Very good stickage. Pretty.

Smell - A combination of sweet caramel and flowery hops. Nice.

Taste - Mild caramel flavored malt. The hops are subtle but present (a mix of flowery and spicy). The malt and hops are perfectly balanced.

Mouth - Velvety smooth. The carbonation is barely perceptible.

Overall - A good English cask bitter. Very tasty/chugable! Unfortunately, this ale wasn't as Glorious as I hoped it would be (a bit too mild for my taste).
