A local favorite in my neck of the woods. There are few simpler pleasures in life greater than a pint of well kept Doom Bar on a balmy Autumn night under the stars. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2004

Oh, yes! Murkey amber body, lovely white head with good lacing, smells citrusy, tastes fruity/caramelly, hints at a bitter finish. Very well rounded, even my wife liked it (she normally says ’umm, it tastes of beer’. But she’s a cider drinker, so what does she know?!
Excellent bitter, would love to find somewhere north of the West Country that keeps this on cask.
The fact that the landlord was retiring so all the beer was FREE tonight in no way influences this rating. Though, after six pints of it, it’s taken me 15 minutes to write this review....
another cornish ale (the other one being ’Doom Bar’) I could sample during my recent trip to Somerset ... pale amber color ... smell of tangerines and orange zest ... taste of pink grapefruit, starfruit over smoked barley ... another example of a rather unique interesting cornish ale ... joe19612 (3131) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2008
Cask at Kings Arm, Oxford. Poured a lovely golden copper colour, with a medium white head. Lovely sweet fruity aroma. Plenty of fruit and toffee in the finish. A well made beer, one of my favourites. Jonte (1496) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2008 Cask at The Wharf, Aalborg, Denmark. Golden color with a small white head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of citrus, lime, oranges, biscuity malt, and sweet fruit. Hoppy taste with strong notes of citrus, also some fruit, sweet malt, and tart yeast. Dry and bitter finish. Refreshing.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 One of my favourite cask beers. Recently had on tap in St. Just, Cornwall and reminded me how good cask beers can be. The market is oversaturated with quite a lot of swill, but when it’s done right, it is hard to beat. Sweet, biscuit malts and not too heavy. Top stuff.
