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.’

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2012
bottle. clear rust-colored body with a billowy off-white head and lasting retention. spectacularly clean nose, though restrained and somewhat mild, the biscuit and cracker pale malt and noble dry-hopping (spiced honey, green moss, flowers, light lemon) give it a brilliance that’s uncommon in bottled British beer. medium-full body with massive carbonation presence: round, firm, chewy, full in the mouth; lush texture front to back, with a crisp and smacking brightness that you typically see in lager (those that are well-made, that is), but with a bit more peach / orange / floral esters and a round chewiness expected of ale. a fresh, bright, golden, traditional English-style ale with stellar malt presence and a perfect accompaniment of English hop flavor, full, frothy, natural-feeling carbonation. this beer works very well in the bottle, I’m happy to find.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Brilliant deep amber with thick yellow white head, webby lace, one of the nicest looking bottled English beers I’ve seen. Nutty, toasted, biscuit malts, more developed and less grainy than many of I’ve had in the style. Hops are subtle and lightly grassy and herbal, lightly floral and citrusy. Very enjoyable.

DutchDrebus (3979) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle @ home thx to benzai. Clear amber colour with a full sized off-white head. Smells hops (amarillo maybe), fresh, slightly fruity. Not bad at all. Tastes hops, bitter, fruity, American pale ale like, fresh. Nice body, bit heavy on the carbo but still nice. Lovely brew!

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
Pours a manuka honey colour with a thin white cap, looks sexy. The aroma is light, bready, malty, biscuity, nutty, with a bit of floral hops, well done and delicious. The flavour is very english malt style if that makes sense to anyone but me. . . .huge on the bready biscuity notes, nutty, with a hint of caramel sweetness, a touch of floral hops show up near the end for a bit of balance. All and all a well crafted beer, it’s nothing mind blowing, but it does what it does and it does it well.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, old flowers, apricot), with notes of black tea, orange marmalade, light note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. Well, the good showing of the Golden was no fluke...this one is even better. Wonderful malt character, bright characterful hops, very clean (no grain husks, no doughy raw yeast, no off notes), fluffy mouthfeel, and once again the minor note of diacetyl accentuates the cookie-and-bread-crust malt without smelling off. A quaffer’s dream but worthy of contemplative study as well. Probably the only thing keeping this out of 4+ territory is the lack of bottle conditioning magic...the nose is a little toned down compared to the best live examples of this style.

daniel0017 (386) - Yukon, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
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.

jmohno (1063) - Iowa, USA - OCT 30, 2012
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.
