Finally, a Welsh rate. RateBeer has been discretely badgering me about it for years - itís the easiest country to nail that you havenít rated, the stats say. Damn it, RateBeer, Iím trying, honest! Welsh beer seems to travel to Australia about as rarely as the rugby team these days. Shame. My low expectations for this ale, stumbled on in a pretty run-of-the-mill country bottlo, were pleasantly surpassed. Gold with a chill haze and a loose, shallow head. Fresh, malt-dominated aroma. Lemon, honey and 3am rolls. Palate seems mildly underdone - verging on flat. May be the bottle age or an attempt to mimic cask conditioning? Bread, bread, bread on the tongue. May be the breadiest ale Iíve come across. No complaints here. Bit herbal, bit floral. Overall, one of the best bottled ales Iíve had from the UK, with none of that nasty pasteurised lolly taint. Nice work. (500ml bottle from DíVine Cellars, Wentworth Falls. BB 4/11/13)

Light sweet flavor with nicely balanced citrusy hops, some tangerine, melon, lemon rind. Light bodied with ine carbonation; great condition. Well balanced on the finish with more lemon and tangerine, mild bitter hay and grass, pale bread sweetness. Great stuff.

It pours golden with a small white head. It has the smell of grass, a bit of lemon, and floral elements. It has the taste of floral elements with grassy elements. It does have a bit of a strange tinge on the palate, but otherwise is good.

500ml bottle: BBD 21 Dec 14.Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home on 5 Sep 14. Slight haze to the golden body, full, deep white head. Sour citrus flavours in both the nose and taste. Mild yeastiness and piney hops with those citrus flavours in the mouth. Decent, but a bit too citrusy for me.
