4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned at The Royal Oak, Bigbury, Devon. Brown to amber with white head. Quite a deeply roasted bitter, which gratefully seems to be the new trend away from blonde / gold bitters. Strongly malty and quite nutty but also with a solid dry hop character. A very decent ’Quaffing Ale’ as the pump clip says and perfect after bashing across 8 miles of Devon Countryside with a further 5 to go.
