Wales The True Taste Judges Commendation 2005-6. A pale amber colour ale with a clear mix of malt and hops in the nose. The taste is a smooth and malty with a strong and bitter hoppy finish.

Poured a murkey amber despite having been sat a couple of days. This is the second Pen-lon beer I’ve had that has reminded me of my home brew attempts. A little sharp at first before a dry bitter finish with the taste of brewers yeast. Poor.

minutemat (4429) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle from Coed Y Dinas, Welshpool. Pours cloudy copper, clear malts. Supposed to have a thick fluffy head but I got nothing of the sort. Grassy with some berries, fairly uneventful but drinkable nonetheless.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle. Orange-brown with a big, frothy and sustaining head. Aroma is highly fruity (mainly peach, much less strawberry) and hoppy (resin). Apart from that it is also grainy malty and to a smaller degree earthy, dusty, with some caramel. Full body and quite heavy palate, a bit too heavy that is, which is this beer’s one of two minor flaws. Taste is mainly resiny hops, peachy fruitiness, soft malt, some subtle alcohol astringency, and very subtle toffee that is kept down by the quite intensive and lasting bitterness.which is partly sharp-astringent - which is this beer’s second minor flaw. On the whole, however, this is a very good and recommendable brew, despite the partly disappointing palate.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2010
Bottle 500ml from Thirst for Beer in Pwllheli (Wales). Ale copper-gold, off-white average head. Aromas of roasted malt, yeast and fruit, touch of licorice. In mouth, the malt and the toffy are supported by spices and hops. The end is drier, always malted with a good herbaceous and resined bitterness.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottled. A red-amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of fruit as well as lighter notes of butter and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a quite bitter finish.

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle. Easily the best from this brewery by a mile. Bronze with a lovely well rounded slightly malty taste.Came as a pleasant surprise as the others from this brewery have been average or just above. This stands out as an excellent beer.
