COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust red-brown ale full of hoppy/ spicy flavours, ’Native Storm’ has a refreshing mouthfeel complemented by a powerful presense of fresh hoppy aromas. The complex range of ingredients coupled with a long dry hop finish result in a delicious and moreish Welsh ale.’

thirstyrabbit (1157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Bronze body, tall steady head. Aroma has jammy and caramelly hops. Taste has intense hoppiness, which seems to be the house style of this brewery. Finish has more dry and caramelly hops and something ferric. This ale is too dry/resinous to be refreshing - its dryness leaves me more thirsty than I was when I started.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy, unfiltered orange-tan. Foamy off-white head. Fishy, classic British Ale aroma. Mildly nutty, with some toffee and caramel tones. Medium bodied, balanced. Some faint juicy hops in the background. Not bad, but no really that memorable of a beer.
