Reviews for: Bombardier Premium Ale

From: Wells & Youngs

ABV: 4.3%

Quality Ales Rating:5.35 from 13 reviews

A mid amber coloured ale with a slightly sulphury aroma. Very little taste in the mouth and a bland aftertaste make this a very ordinary bitter. I suggest the headbrewer try's Oakam's Bishops farewell to see what can be done. Very plain.

This can be simply described as bland,with little flavour and aroma. There are a lot better beers out there and this one should be avoided if possibe.

I knew before I tried this, that it was going to be bad... and it was - but... not as bad as I expected. The initial bite and flavour is okay, but after that it is just totally average (at best)...

This is another average beer from another big brewery that puts no effort into brewing. Amber coloured with a fairly tame neutral taste.

(Export version, ABV 5.5%. Can.) Original rating: Most English 'bitters' are not very bitter at all - but this one is! Too bitter for my taste. Rerate: It's NOT too bitter for my taste! (What was I thinking the first time I had it? I must have been out of my mind!) The nutty bitterness is just right, great refreshment on a hot day. Not outstanding, but a GOOD ale, for sure.

Malty dominant mid brown best bitter. Traces of sulphor in the background finishing dry and slightly bitter. Ok, but I remember this beer being far better in the past.

malty ale, how beers used to be. so many much better beers around now, so is somewhat lacking in all departments. lives on reputation alone
