Cask; Regular. Also available bottled. A Devon best bitter, amber in colour and a multi award winner. The modern hops produce a well balanced, clean and crisp beer with a dry and hoppy finish.

Cask. Orangeish golden colour with a small slightly off-white head, that leaves some slight lace. Aroma is caramel malts, mild crystal malty notes as well as some nutty and wooden notes along with some mild floral notes. Flavour is being rather similar, but the wooden notes are more evident than they are in the aroma,
