Notes: 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.

Doom Bar is a perfectly balanced beer combining subtle yet complex flavours. This creates an amber ale which is both satisfying and deliciously moreish.

Bottled, 4.3% ABV. Clear amber color with a bit of beige head. Aroma has toasted malts and some earthy hops, not much going on here. Taste has toasted malts, bread crust, a bit of caramel/burnt sugar and a hint of hops on the finish. Not really sweet or bitter, quite watery. Light body with low carbonation. It doesn't have any off-tastes but it's really generic and boring overall.

A light and drinkable bitter. Looks great. Tastes a little boring.

On cask.

Dark, cola-colored brew, with a creamy beige head.

Mild aroma: fruitcake and dark bread.

Toffee, toast, and caramel; biscuit and brown sugar; cola and prunes; restrained bitterness with slight hints of grass and pine. Malt focused; a touch sweet, but fairly balanced.

Smooth, very drinkable.

It had a great color of a cask ale, maroon, transparent, but not watery, decent head. I was looking forward to it, but when i drank it....it had almost no flavor whatsoever. It was watery, had no real personality, reminded me of dishwater almost. Should've gotten a Stella instead.
