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.’

500ml bottle: pours a hazed amber in the glass with a smallish white cap. Modest carbonation. Aroma is understated – light sweet boiled cereals, light grassiness – clean. Weak mouth feel fluid body. Flavour is mild in both malt and hop presence, has a decent smoothness and ease of drinking, Bitter clean finish. Seems like a standard Brit pub mild to me, 2 dimensional, not really distinctive, but I presume this is far better fresh on cask – I have to wonder about the freshness of my sample seeing how it had virtually no ale fruitiness to it. Not that I’m overly thrilled by these mild Brit ales, but the idea of bottling cask style ale never works out well as it stales out so quickly in small containers like bottles.

Bottiglia da 500 ml. Color ambrato carico con schiuma bianca fine di buona tenuta. Aroma di caramello che si ripresenta subito al palato per un finale abbastanza secco, corpo leggero.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy and very spicy with a hint of sweet malt. Flavour is very bitter with lemon pith, roasted nuts, caramel, hoppy notes. A smooth, sweet yet bitter finish with grapefruit notes. I’m not a fan of very bitter brews and I’m not a fan of this...

EtTuCthulhu (1022) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This beer pours a hazy copper color with a medium white head. The aroma blends caramel, nutty, and toasted malts with earthy hops and fig, and the taste has a mild malt bitterness mixed with a slight nutty sourness; the palate fuses slightly sticky texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish due to the earthy and spicy hop flavor that comes through in the end.

KajII (781) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014
375ml Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy medium chestnut brown with an average (1-2 fingers) off white frothy head that reduced down to a puddled film and large collar with good sticky spotty lacing.

The aroma was moderately malty with a biscuit malt, light floral hops and a sweet doughy yeast along with notes of caramel, citrus (orange and tangerine) and a mild fruity ester (raisons and figs).

The taste was good and malty with a moderate caramel sweetness which was present throughout, and then progressed with a bit of fruitiness along with a mild hop presence and a good bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a sweet bitter citrusy taste lingering on the taste buds for a bit longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a watery yet dry texture and a very soft carbonation.

Overall I really enjoyed drinking this brew, it possessed just the right balance of sweet malts and bitter hops... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Bottle. Aroma is orange juice? Okay also some malt and other fruits, but still basicly orange juice. Flavour has a nice fruity and herbal medium bitter hop notes, some other fruity notes (some orange here), touch of biscuity malt. Great.
