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.

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.

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.

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.

imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Brown amber with white head. Quite a dry bitter with a caramel toffee background. Fullish malts, a little chalkiness, the honey does show through a little. Dry and lengthy finish. Reasonable.

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2011
bottle from Greendale Farmshop near Exeter. Intensive aroma of fresh, green hops (Boadicea hops), green plants. A very interesting hop profile that works very well with the solid malty background.
