Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Rugby BF. A dark gold coloured beer. THe aroma is nicely hoppy with lychee and orange notes. The taste is good hops and well flavoured. Perhaps not as strong as the aroma but an enjoyable taste and an excellent drink.

An enjoyable session bitter with good hop measure. One of my favourites from the Welsh beer festival at the Rake. Light citrusy and hoppy, trying to blend an American IPA with an English bitter which kinda works but kinda fails. However just an enjoyable session bitter. I would like to try this again. An excellent session example and should be available more often then it is.

500ml bottle: smells of caramel. Pale gold colour. Nutty flavours with hints of cough-candy and well balanced earthy hops. Really very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Nov 09, drank Jun 09.
Poured into a pint glass, it looked a golden pale colour. A firm white head sat on top, this head slowly became a collar and wispy covering.
Hoppy aroma, not overpowering, but strong enough to hide anything else.
Pale and Crystal malts used in the brew, but the hops win the battle of the flavours like they did in the nose. There are some citrus notes within the taste as well.
Good mouthfeel considering it is only 3.6% ABV beer, plenty of taste and bite to it. A nicely put together beer.

[Bottled at Tycoch Inn, Porthdinllaen] Like Glaslyn Ale by the same brewery, this bottle conditioned ale closely resembles a cask ale. A bit watery but tasteful, quite drinkable

Bottle. Lively upon opening and pored with a big head that took time to disappear. Bitter and quite hoppy and left lots of lacing.
