3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a dark red/amber colour with little to no head, and no lacing either.
Smells faintly alcoholic and malty.
Tastes of medium to dark malts and some nice fruity English hops. Well balanced out with a bit of booziness too.
Overall a nice drop.

Clear amber ale with typical English off-white foam head. Drinks don very smooth. Bit weak aroma and small bitter taste, but a great English (excuse me Welsh) bitter. Perfect. (Swansea 201312)

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle thanks to Lewis. Pours amber with a slim head. The nose has mainly malty and slightly astringent. The taste has some honey and malt. The palate is close to medium bodied with a fairly rich texture and a finish which isn’t too bad, even if not refreshing. Overall, solid but not great.
