UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Pours dark chestnut/amber with a tanned head. aroma of flowers and some fruit, not particularly strong. smooth and drinkable, although not huge depth of flavour, there is some grapefruit, citrus etc. dry bitterness comes through.

To bitter i to zupełnie przeciętny, by nie powiedzieć totalnie nijaki. Niby bittery to takie właśnie piwa, ale praktyka pokazuje, że można zrobić to lepiej. Tutaj delikatna karmelkowa podbudowa słodowa zostawia słodkawe posmaczki, ale całościowo jest dosyć wytrawnie i ziemisto. I nijako.

I’ve had several pints of Doom Bar over the years. The first of these, which is not the one rated here, was a very memorable pint at a pub in Cornwall around a decade ago - although I wasn’t rating beers then I remember an interesting bitter with a sea salt tang and a really fresh taste. It’s either me getting old and jaded, or things have really changed in recent years. Doom Bar seems to be almost ubiquitous in nationwide pubs and is now a very average, dull bitter. Bah humbug and all that.

A rare cask rating for myself. Came free in a local restaurant so what had to lose? Slightly cloudy yellow. A bit dry but quite passable and certainly a lot better than most restaurant beers. Did i read that despite MolsonCoors promises this is now brewed in Burton. Not bad, might even pay for it-I think.

Smooth cask ale. Little head. Nothing crazy, but a decent ale. Wouldn’t be my first choice, but good when options are few.

Let’s not overanalyze. It’s a good pint of bitter, nothing complicated. Dry and drinkable.

On tap at Saddlers Arms (though had before in lots of other places). Pours a dark gold with little head. Perfect drinkable ale, with a little barley and hops. Few things can beat a couple of doombars in the sun on a summer day.
