Subtle malty caramel flavours with hints of aromatic vanilla and delicious fruits finally succumb to a robust full on body.

Bottle purchased from one of those quaint little shops in Cheddar Gorge. Dark gold with a quickly fading white head. Body is on the light side and low carbonation. Fair bit of flavour though for a session ale - good blend of caramel, citrus, apple, hazelnut and biscuit.

[Gift from my wife, from Dunster Village Stores - cheers!] Light amber, rapidly diminishing off-white head. Looks thin and fizzy, and turns out to be so in the mouth. Lovely aroma though - really enticingly fruity. However, the flavour is poor in comparison - dry minerals with just a hint of biscuitty malt. Didnít really enjoy this, Iím afraid.
