Fra fat på ferie i Wales many years ago: det jeg husker best er historien om da Prince Charles uttalte til stor jubel hos studentene på universitetet: "What this country needs is brains" (!)

Nothing more than a decent cask bitter really. Smooth and slightly bitter. Nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask @ the 3 Kings, Cullen as 3 Kings Ale. Pours dark amber with a nice head. The nose is mainly malt with some biscuits. The taste is malty with a more obvious biscuit note. The palate is well balanced, medium bodied and fairly well balanced. Overall, solid but not memorable.

Very crisp, very refreshing and a perfectly smooth bitter. Excellent brewing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lovely welsh bitter... which i prefer in general to most english bitters... i enjoyed this New Years Eve in Cardiff at Dempseys across from the Cardiff Castle... this helped to make a great night...
A: Medium amber with a thin-medium off white head... fades nicely
S: Floral hops and bakery malts play off each other
T: The aroma profile plays a big part in the taste with the floral hops smashing up front and then giving way to rich malts typical of the bitter
M: Medium bodied... smooth and velvety
O: A good one. I’d enjoy again and again

Amber pour with a tight creamy head. The nose is softly malty with a little bit of light earthiness and a touch of soft fruit on the palate. Light bodied - but plenty quaffable.
