Bring me my chariot of fire

Some time ago I reported on Charles Wells’ Satanic Mills variety of their Bombardier bitter (see Dark Satanic Beer), and I said at the time that I would look out for the Burning Gold variety.  Well, I found it (okay, Sarah did) and tried it – quite appropriately (well almost) on the eve of St. George’s Day – Charles Wells makes much of its claim to be “the Drink of England”, as you’ll see if you look on their website.  You’ll also realise that I’ve fallen a bit behind with writing up my samplings!

As the name suggests, Burning Gold (4.7%) is a golden beer; it is malty, with quite a citrussy taste – it’s dry, crisp and refreshing.  The finish is a bit tart – lemony – which emphasises the citrussy theme.  It’s very nice, and well worth looking out for.

To wash down the Burning Gold, I had a bottle of the Satanic Mills variety of Bombardier.  I really like this style of beer – it is beautifully dark, and smells and tastes of burnt toast, coffee and smoke (what I’ve referred to before as “a trucker’s breakfast).  It’s not a beer that I could drink a lot of at a time, but it makes a delicious change from the more usual beers.
