3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Finally, a Welsh rate. RateBeer has been discretely badgering me about it for years - it’s the easiest country to nail that you haven’t rated, the stats say. Damn it, RateBeer, I’m 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 I’ve come across. No complaints here. Bit herbal, bit floral. Overall, one of the best bottled ales I’ve had from the UK, with none of that nasty pasteurised lolly taint. Nice work. (500ml bottle from D’Vine Cellars, Wentworth Falls. BB 4/11/13)

The appearance has a hazy orangeish golden color with a small white head that fades quickly to a ring. The aroma blends earthy hops with light malts, and the taste is slightly bitter, mildly sour, and a touch umami; the mouthfeel fuses a slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish with an earthy hop flavor.

Bottle from Morrisons Connahs Quay. Pours a clear gold/amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is orange zesty and citrussy hops. Taste is hoppy and slightly dry with a grassy pine backbone. Decent enough beer, not a world beater, but still decent enough!

Cerveza rubia, de muy buen sabor. Deja un regusto fuerte a diferentes maltas y aromas. En cierta manera me recordo a la BrewDog Punk IPA. La encontrareis disponible en el Coleccionista, en Gijón, Asturias.
