"Bloody strong pint but surprisingly fresh taste. This ale is produced with Devon Honey and and is a really lovely pint. Full Bore is the same recipe as Half Bore but double the strength."

Theydon_Bois (18267) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle split at Level 42, thanks to Danny, 24/05/16. Rich amber with a decent beige swirl. Nose is airy malts, fruit loaf, marzipan, fruit esters. Taste comprises fruit cake, dates, raisens, light caramel. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation - overcooked in this respect, sweet toasted close. Ok English Strong, the carb level let this down a touch for me.

imdownthepub (13873) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from The Co-Op in Alcomb, Somerset. Hazy amber with slight head. This is a heavily sweetened beer, honeyed, toffee flavours on a fruity malt. Plummy alcohol notes. It’s ok, but expected a little more.
