3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Tarka Inn, North Devon. It pours an amber beer with a bubbly whitish head. A very nice fruity nose. The taste is of caramel, berries (wild strawberries), anise and shampoo. Slightly watery. There is a decent bitterness to this beer. The finish is mainly of caramel. It leaves a good lacing. Wonderfully enjoyable and easy drinkable, but not that terribly full flavoured.
