Notes: Doom Bar is inspired by its namesake, the treacherous sandbank at the mouth of the Camel Estuary near Sharps' home at Rock. Accomplished and precise, Doom Bar is the epitomy of consistency, balance and moreish appeal and is now the UK's no.1 selling cask beer.

An enticing aroma of resinous hop, sweet malt and delicate roasted notes. The mouth feel is a balanced, complex blend of succulent dried fruit, lightly roasted malt and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. The finish is dry and refreshing.

ABV: 4.0% (cask), 4.3% (bottle)

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.
