Cask; Occasional - most recently monthly beer for September 2014. Also available regularly in bottles.

Taking inspiration from one of Dylan Thomas’ most memorable characters Organ Morgan is a thirst-quenching golden ale.
Crafted with a harmony of hops this beer has a clean, floral aroma and delicate citrus flavours.
This golden ale forms part of our Dylan Thomas range with Jack Black (available in bottle) and Milkwood.

Bottle 70p from B&M (BBE Feb 2014, this is May 8th!) Hazy, murky even, gold, thin white head, nose is of citrus hops, there is a strange, harsh aftertaste which spoils the whole flavour thing. Not that nice, even at 70p!

Part of my 2013 backlog, tried at the bowl inn almondsbury. Colour is cloudy gold with a white head. Flavour has sweet hops, and malts. A touch watery.

From cask (forgotten whether handpump or gravity) at the Bree Louise on 9 September 2014. A very decent clean blond. No blockbuster but good drinking. Fair amount of zesty citrus. Surprisingly enjoyable (for a "standard" Brains beer). Note to self: The bottled version is probably pasteurized, in which case the cask and bottled version need to be separated.
