Tasting – Id just done a bit of digging and needed something this quenching. This hit the spot.
Its got a lovely dark colour for an amber ale. Beautiful roasted hop taste, almost some coffee/chocolate to it. A bit of a bitterness on the end but its just enough, it doesn’t go overboard. For a 0.0% with low sugar it backs the flavour in nicely and not at all thin or watery feeling.
Caramel! A sort of mildly burnt but pleasant caramel taste. I was trying to think of it there for ages.
Verdict – 8/10. Perhaps not a session beer but for 0.0%, low sugar there is just heaps of hoppy, caramel flavour. Unmistakably a good amber ale.

At the mouth of the Camel Estuary in Rock, lies the treacherous Doom Bar sandbank, the inspiration for this moreish amber ale.
The sandbank is revered as a formidable nautical challenge that should be approached with respect and navigated with skill.
Spicy resinous hop, sweet roasted malt.
Balanced, succulent dried fruits, lightly roasted malt
Moreish, subtle bitterness
