COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A storm arisen through Native Wales’...16 September 1400: Owain Glyn Dwr led the greatest armed uprising against English rule in Wales, one that would last for over fifteen years and which for a few brief shining moments would produce a united independent Wales ruled by its own prince and parliament. Though eventually suppressed by the English, the reverberations of this revolt are still heard in Wales today.
Characterised as a robust mid brown ale full of spicy and biscuit 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.’

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a small bubbly head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of unrefined grainy notes with light dry bitter hops profile. Taste is also dominated by slightly weird unrefined grainy notes with a dry aftertaste. Body is light with medium to low carbonation. I must say that I really didn’t dig the malt profile on this one.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
2012-11-07. Lightly hazy dark copper amber, nice beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma is malty, with an English quality to it, mild toasty not quite biscuity character, lightly earthy. Flavour is similar, lightly earthy English malt, modest toasty biscuity quality to the malt. Modest bitterness throughout. Average plus palate has modest carbonation, suits it. Pretty enjoyable. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

Aroma is toffee/mildly sweet malts and a fruit background. The flavor is toffee, mild/medium nutty malts, fruit undertones and a mild bitterness in the finish.

johnnnniee (2189) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 1, 2012
New product line introduced to NH, what the hell the bottle looks cool. Pours a clear deep dark golden color with a smallish off white head that dissipates to a cap. Smells of caramel malt, toffee, butterscotch, earthy with a hint of mineral water. The flavor holds no surprises that the nose hadn’t already revealed. Lightly caramelized sugar, toffee, lots of light sweet fruit, a bit of butterscotch mineral and earth. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost tart mouthfeel. Nice English pale, I could see myself plowing through a few of these if I were sitting in a pub on the other side of the pond.

Pint to SS English pint glass.Slight head,slight lacing. Almost clear orangish gold. Some hops in aroma,some mild: toast ,butter,nuts,caramel, a bit of chocolate. Taste is anything but boring for a bitter,same as aroma,with a nice mellow hop presence, dry chocolate nutty, citrustones in the finish.Has a nice lasting bittering.Somewhat complex but also refined. Alot of matching elements that make up a good tasting beer.Smooth and enjoyable.

semi-cloudy, orange-amber effervescent body with a sediment gathering at the bottom. copious amounts of beige frothy head with impressive lacing. started fizzing as soon as it was uncapped. variety of hops to the nose, too complex to describe. flavor is equally complex: dry malt, rye bread, yeast, autumn fruits and a variety of hops. dry but not overly bitter finish.

SilkTork (5166) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
JDW, Rochester. Mouldy leather and a dry spacious toffee accented malt. Well integrated bittering hops. A little old fashioned, but drinkable.

TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Best before May, 2013: Rusty peach. Thin but creamy and nicely sustained white foam. Enticingly rustic nose of blackcurranty hops, apricot jam-filled butter cookies and vague pepperiness. Faint mineral character. Tight, firm carbonation. Soft medley of earthy, curranty hop flavors merge with supple apricot esters. Spicy, woody hop notes soon accompany the subdued bitterness that develops. Malt is fairly weighty, depositing a cookielike sweetness on the tongue along with subtle tobacco. Dry nut skins and springy pecan flesh provide nice contrast to the sweetness as they link up and enhance the earthy, leafy sharpness of the hops. Pleasant dabs of forest floor/fallen leaves delicately adorn the otherwise simplistic malt-hop combo. Finishes cleanly attenuated with shortbread malt kissed with soft, spent tealeaf hop notes echoed with hints of wood and licorice. No flaws, and it is very well-balanced. Sure wish this was bottle-conditioned, as that would likely give it some extra nuance, along with improved texture and shelf life (oxidation in form of cardboard is already apparent), which this currently lacks. I could drink lots of this.
