Real Ale Beer Review: Burning Gold from Bombardier (Charles Wells)

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's SECOND real ale beer review is for Burning Gold from Bombardier (Charles Wells).

Share It!

Did I not say there was a SURFEIT of beers this week? I thought Burning Gold would be good to do on the same day as Broadside since I had these together at the same time at the pub on Friday night.

Burning Gold was indeed a lovely golden colour. It was lightly floral and lemony. Sweet to start with a bitter backend that I particularly like in a sweet floral ale. Really enjoyed this. It was quite a contrast from the dark and zingy Broadside.

You may remember Bombardier from their TV ads that used to feature the magnificent Rik Mayal. A brand out of Wells and Young (or Charles Wells of DNA IPA collaboration) they do a good solid beer that is popular among all beer drinkers. Except for hipsters. Hipsters do not drink Bombardier. But WTF do they know?

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
