Formerly "High Tide" this is a fruity, copper ale. With an aroma reminiscent of grapes the taste is a nutty, light bitterness.
At 4.5% ABV it is our strongest beer.
Devon Darter asserts it's unique character right from its first scent, sending forth first rich chocolates, then towards a surprisingly ripe, almost tropical fruit bloom. It's smooth pour amasses a calm but formidable head to the ale, the bubbles of which disperse and regroup to release bursts of peach, faint toffee, and coastal grasses.
The first taste is a short hop note with a hint of sea side salt in the air. Further tastes retain a clear, soft centre to the structure whilst the combinations of citrus fruits and grapes jostle for pole position occasionally accented by a light nutty bitterness.
The graduating character of Devon Darter is accentuated by it's in-mouth nature of finishing short on the palate, then delivering an even more varied taste selection with each following sip.
