Lancaster Bomber

Here’s a quote from the Wainwright brew that I reviwed earlier and is relevant here.
“I am worried about a couple of things about the range in general. These beers tend not to travel well, and in any case they are simply beers that are infinitely better in their cask versions, close to the source. Hardly any bottled beer of this type is drunk in England, so these are simply not the best rerprentations of these beers that you will ever get.”
Nice, light chestnut color, but to be honest it looks a little thin and the head, retention and lace are disappointing.
Nose and tastes are MUCH better than the appearance. Lots of toffee and malt biscuitness. Nice bitterness in the back followed by some pleasing dry character.
Good brew but put it in the cask and you have an infinitely different and better beer. I’d love to try this closer to the source.
