Gorgeous pint you could live on this!! This ale is produced with Devon Honey and and is a really lovely pint. Half Bore is the same recipe as Full Bore but half the strength.

Aroma; hops, leaves, dust, attic, pale malts, caramel note, grain. Look; off white head, amber clear body. Taste; mild hops, citric note, pale malts, mild caramel note, leaves - leading to a herbal finish with upcoming malts. Feel; normal. Overall; alright. [50cl.btl 4.0% BB.1.9.17 B@Kjeller5]

Cask ale shared with Finn at Brass Monkey. Dotted spots from an almost naked surface. Clear amber body. Subdued aroma of caramel malts. Mixed flavour character of bread, caramel and some impact of lemony hops. Short lived malt bitter finish. So and so (Plymouth 22.09.2016).

Bottle from a shop in Totnes, Devon. Cloudy dark amber with a thin head. A fine full fruit flavoured ale. High fruit aroma too.

Bottled 10/08/13. A cloudy brown coloured beer with a white head and lace. Gushed a bit and turned out yeasty. Fruity hops and bready malts. No honey for me. OK but tainted a bit.

[500ml bottle that my Dad shared with me - cheers!] Pours a murky deep amber-red with no head. Rather sweet aroma. On tasting the honey is balanced by lemon hops and a good earthy bitterness in the finish. Itís still a bit weird though - Iíve never been convinced by honey beers.

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Hand pulled at The Brunswick Inn, Derby. Classic looking chestnut ale. Smells like the pool table at my old youth club - sweet and dirty. Not that I generally went around smelling the pool table. And certainly not recently. But it did smell like this. Watery and bittersweet with a hint of banana citrus. Smooth.

36th CAMRA Cotswold beer festival in the lovely 15th century Tithe Barn was the setting for my tasting of this beer. Gravity poured half-pint: amber body with a thin covering of white bubbles on top. Produced with Devon Honey: I couldnít detect any honey presence in either the aroma or taste but it did have an interesting feel to it. The nose was a mixed bag of smells: mild malty molasses and fruity esters blending together nicely. The taste was again malty, but the hop element came into its own a bit more and the beer had an underlying bitterness that was refreshing and crisp. As the mouth dried the hop dry bitterness became even more prominent. Should have had a pint (but so many beers to try).

Bottle. Copper with an off white foam. Aromas are toffee and medicinal notes with herbal honey. Lightly smoky and earthy with raisins and floral aspects. Flavours are toffee and lemon with mellow, pithy grapefruit. Dry tea with leafy hops and lots of pepper to finish. A solid bitter.
