Bottle. Golden pint with thin head and soft carbonation. Any aroma alluded me, probably due to my cold. Taste is great, lots of biscuit, caramel and a well defined medium bitter finish. There see probably lots of lovely notes in there too - damn this cold. Palate is really soft and smooth. Will be getting this bottle again.

Malty light brown bitter. Biscuit, toffee, possibly Munich. For its ABV it packs plenty of flavour. Gift from Helen and Aled 2015 visit. Great fruity, Apple pudding finish.

TedE (985) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2015
Pint on tap at Tyn-Y-Groes hotel. Slight malt nose, bronze ale with tiny white head. Nice mouthfeel. Good bitterness with malt undertones. Solid but unspectacular.

jmgreenuk (7675) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 3, 2015
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, slightly watery malt, light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A drinkable, light session ale, but somewhat weak and lacking flavour.

Bottle. I’m not sure if this was bottle conditioned as it is crystal clear, with no sediment, and a weak head. Copper body. Thin white head. Nose is orange, citrus, spice, toffee, green apple. Bitter. Bitter and very dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Very sessionable, Very good.
