Bombardier Ale - English, Reliable and Damned Tasty

How do you like your English male stereotypes? The modern self-deprecating, wet lettuce type personified by Stephen Fry or Hugh Grant? Or maybe you prefer a more self-confident, hedonistic, swashbuckling type — a type more in evidence in the period between Agincourt and the Italian Job? If so, then you'll find the series of adverts from Wells and Young's for their Bombardier Ale 'Bang On'!

Rik Mayall played the character of The Bombardier in a similar vein to the Lord Flasheart character he played in the much-missed Blackadder series. They're playing a cut-down version of the advert on TV, but here's the full version. Move over wet lettuces.
