3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Subtle, fruity nose with some candy and a hint of herbs. Flavour is very, well, strong aley - a great example of the style. A lot of bitterness in the finish from the hop carries this beer really and lifts it from being just another ESA to being quite pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pleasantly refreshing strong IPA Bleddyn has maltly aromas with a subtle hint of citrus, however the roles are reversed in the taste, a strong hoppy zesty citrus flavour fades away into a mellow slightly maltly grapefruit taste. This beer pours clearly into the glass with ample head almost a quarter of a pint glass and it stays pure white until you have drunk the last drop.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, pale gold pour with a 2 finger, frothy, white head that has good retention and leaves decent lacing. Tree fruit, berries, bitter citrus and biscuit in the aroma. Taste starts out with lots of mineral, cereal malts, light toffee, floral (thistle flower comes to mind), herbal, and bitter citrus hops with a nice, light honey-like sweetness riding out the citrus and mineral finish. Medium body, oily, to creamy feel and moderate carbonation. Pretty good overall, nicely hoppy, while still retaining a distinctly Englishy profile.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Goldish light copper,clear,short head,lacing.
Sweet ripe-fruit aroma,with spice,tart,buttery,bready cracker,maybe slight dms. I was gonna say it has a bitter aroma,but now that I think about it that is like a ruby red grapefruit likeness.Like a sweet ripe fruit with a tart/sourness note.Almost skunky and grasssy like.Fairly complex aroma having the english with it. The buttery tones may stick out more dominatly.
Really nice taste,ripe fresh fruit,nice mild sweetness with a stronger bitter/hoppiness.Mild classic dyacytal english taste,spicey floral notes,pretty spicey type bittering. Some what grassy almost skunkyness.Grassy/spicey bittering linger.
Very flavorfull with good character for a 5%er.
