“We wanted to harness the evocative sense of the Somerset Autumn in a beer. With the last apple pressing days, dry leaves underfoot and the whiff of bonfires at every corner this beer sums it up, from sweet smoke, warming malt sweetness and hints of apple. This is a beer to drink post barbecue, scarfs on, stomping against the chill and watching fireworks on a starry night sky. The vanilla pods add something a little special to the character of the beer. Helping produce an elegant, creamy, soothing confection of aromas and flavours. It’s like a rich dessert in a glass."
