COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
NOTE: The bottled version (at 5.6%) has a separate listing.

Bleddyn ap Cynfyn was ruler of Gwynedd and Powys and probably of Ceredigion and Brycheiniog as well, and undoubtedly the most powerful Welsh king. After his death in 1075, his sons were too young to rule, and his dominions passed into the hands of a cousin Trahaern ap Caradog.
This delicious pale strong ale has an original gravity of 1075 with a high mash temperature leaving a fine full bodied texture. Generous US and New Zealand variety hopping gives a very bitter tongue, which is complemented by a crisp sweetness and a delicious citrus and grapefruit aroma.

Golden beer with a thin head and a mild hop aroma. There’s a faint sweet edge to the taste but I couldn’t pick out what it was as the flavour is predominantly of hops. Taste-wise it’s one I could enjoy having a few of for an evening but given the strength that’d probably be a bad idea!
