5 litre mini cask from a supermarket in Brynbuga/Usk. Clear amber colour, slightly red, with a head of considerable size. Fruity-hoppy nose with a hint of baking yeast. Malty with caramel, resiny hops and a touch of fruit, hints of cinnamon and marzipane. Well-balanced and quaffable.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2009
Clear, dark amber body with a good white head that nearly lasted. Slight nutty aroma with a hint of spice. Pick up crystal malt in the taste, pleasant medium bitterness, touch of astringency leaving it dry on the finish. Should be a good session beer

zach8270 (3219) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2009
(bottle - 500 ml) Part of a four pack my mom brought back from Wales. Clear copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is dry and slightly hoppy with a light malt note underneath. Flavor is sweet and light at the beginning with a malty and sweet middle and a very clean finish. Goes down easy. Very good session beer.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2009
(Bottled) Clear, deep amber with a smallish, firm and lacy head. Moderately strong nutty-citric hops in the aroma, with caramely malt and dried fruitiness. Nutty-hoppy, somewhat bitter flavor with mellow fruitiness, and citric hops drying the finish. Medium body with high, but quite soft carbonation. A quite enjoyable, clean and balanced, true-to-the-style bitter with enough flavor to go down as a session beer.

dyetube (1157) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Thanks to my friend dan fro bringing me this from wales! This beer pours a deep yellow/light amber color with little to no head. There is a breadlike aroma that is quite pleasant. The beer is actually pretty drinkable, but not that memorable. Nice to be able to try it though. Cheers

Royal Hotel, Oban August 11. 2005 - a goodnight beer. Amber, nice head and lacing. The aroma is very malty, the flavour has notes of roasted malt, caramel. sweetness and in the finish a dry bitterness. The flavour lacks body and is a bit thin.
