Courage Directors Bitter( ABV 4.8%)
It is a genuine premium ale, pale brown in appearance with a deep rich taste.
In the pub industry survey for the 'Publican' magazine '2005 Market Report' licensees were asked to name three brands that they would most like to stock in their pubs: "...the big news is the storming new entry of Wells Bombardier at No.3".

As most lovers of cask ale know, water is the most important ingredient in beer, and Wells Bombardier has an enviable natural advantage over other premium bitters; it is uniquely brewed using natural mineral water from an independently accredited source - our own well.
Wells Bombardier uses only the most flavoursome part of the rippest, hand sampled English hops to guarantee a delicious sultana fruit taste and a wonderful, spicy aroma.
We also use more malt per pint than other premium bitters and our English 'Crystal' malt is carefully crushed, not ground, to deliver the rich flavour and deep copper colour for which Wells Bombardier is renowned. '
Wells Eagle IPA
IPA long-standing favourite within Charles Wells' heartland and famed for it's rare, notably dry-bitter finish, Wells Eagle IPA (Alc. 3.6% Vol.) is starting to emulate the nationwide success of its premium bitter stable-mate, Wells Bombardier.
(British Guild of Beer Writers and Editor of The Good Beer Guide)
The popularity of this perfectly crafted pint is described by award winning beer writer, Alastair Gilmour:
“The aroma is of freshly sliced ripe apples. Its amber hue is emphasised by a tight rich head which set it up as an ale with real credentials.”
