COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Formerly called Welsh Mountain IPA or just IPA.
This thirst-quenching modern IPA is full of styrian golding hop aroma. Although lower in alcohol then the traditional IPA’s of the 19th century, our version still maintains some of the original characteristics such as a full hop flavour and dry finish.

AshtonMcCobb (2542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2013
On cask @ the Cottage Loaf, Llandudno. Pours amber with a decent head. The nose has malt and gentle biscuits, perhaps some apples but slightly lacking in toffee like I’d hoped - there’s more of the same on the taste. It’s another bitter that is good but hard to pick out from the many others. Solid

imdownthepub (10210) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Amber with white head. Quite a perfumed beer, light in character but with enough in the flavour to maintain the interest. Some almond in the later flavour.

Copper appearance with no head. Citrus hoppy scent with some biscuity malts. Quite carbonated. Quite dry, moderate bitterness. Some hops with cereal malt notes. Bit boring but OK.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009. OK so I entered this whilst listening to Mozart so it put me in a good mood. Clear amber gold. Lasting beige head. Some decent hop on aroma. Bit light in the mouth, but again decent hop on the finish, ok decent golden ale and I do like the beers from Great Orme, probably my favourite Welsh brewery.

Cask gravity at Ashford Rugby Club BF 2008. Slight haze, no head. Yeasty, bit of green apple, not quite ready. But some yeasty character, bit more green apple, but actually it’s not all bad.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2008

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
A very light amber pour covered by a minimal off-white head. Gently orangey, tartish and citrusy nose with supporting toastiness, but also juicy and slightly plasticy yeast notes. The frequent English stale bread also kicks in and simplify the flavour deployment. Tea-like suggestions in the hoppy finish. Light-medium bodied, flat.
