3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the first beers from a new venture set up by Simon Buckley, originally of Buckleys Brewery (before it was taken over, and closed, by Brains) and latterly of Tomos Watkin. I found two Evan Evans beers in the Castle pub at Llandeilo in West Wales (which was itself the original home of Tomos Watkin beers). Cwrw (which is "ale" in Welsh) was a rich copper colour, with plenty of pale malt in the aroma. Dry malt and fruit in the flavour with some citric hops coming through. Mellow finish with some bite. A nicely balanced first effort.

Little on the nose, but full flavoured and malty on the tongue. Hoppy aftertaste, but not overwhelmingly so.

Cask at Normandie, Tenby. Pours a hazy amber with floaters! Aromas of biscuity malts and red fruit. Tastes similar, with a touch of hop bitterness. Good body, good finish, but not well kept.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at a pub in Brecon (Wales). It pours a hazy deep amber liquid with a lasting medium consistent white head, leaving a lot of lacing. The aroma is light, being basically malty, with a little caramel, grassy hops and hints of fruit (orange). It tastes much more intense, with a nice balance of pale malts and hops. It feels sweet, very fruity, but with a herbal touch and a gentle bitterness. In the mouth it feels very smooth, softly carbonated and with a long and dry finish. Singular bitter; not like the "usual ones". Worth trying!
