COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Formerly "High Tide" this is a fruity, copper ale. With an aroma reminiscent of grapes the taste is a nutty, light bitterness.
At 4.5% ABV it is our strongest beer.
Devon Darter asserts its unique character right from its first scent, sending forth first rich chocolates, then towards a surprisingly ripe, almost tropical fruit bloom. It’s smooth pour amasses a calm but formidable head to the ale, the bubbles of which disperse and regroup to release bursts of peach, faint toffee, and coastal grasses.
The first taste is a short hop note with a hint of sea side salt in the air. Further tastes retain a clear, soft centre to the structure whilst the combinations of citrus fruits and grapes jostle for pole position occasionally accented by a light nutty bitterness.
The graduating character of Devon Darter is accentuated by it’s in-mouth nature of finishing short on the palate, then delivering an even more varied taste selection with each following sip.

BlackHaddock (7232) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014
500ml bottle: BBE of Jan 15. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home in Dec 14. Nice looking brew, true copper hue to the clear and clean body: sadly the head sank to a wisp and collar a bit too quickly for my liking. Fruity and caramel notes in the nose, the taste also semi-sweet and malty with fruit hints to find. Mild woody and nutty feel to the flavours within the taste, a decent blend overall and a pleasant enough beer for the winter.
