SilkTork (5370) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, - SEP 20, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Joiners Arms, Bishopston. Roasty malty ale with a touch of crystal malt. Lovely drop. Best tasting of the Swansea beers I’ve had.

Slightly hazy light copper. The aroma - I can’t decide if that’s spiciness or 7-Up. Caramel, light metallic notes, some bread. Finishes a bit juicy.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Cask @ Swansea Bay Beer Festival 2010. Orange-amber with a slight cask head. Smelly feet and dirty towel mars aroma. Wet hops and pedio. The mouthfeel is soft and juicy. Great flavors, though. Lingering bitterness. Great balance.

pivnizub (9165) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2006
Draught (at the brewpub): Light amber coloured, firm, lacing white head; fruity nose with a little maltiness and a distinctive hoppy touch; dry bitter flavour; long, aromatic bitter finish. A well made Welsh brew !

One of three Swansea beers I sampled at the brewpub. Mid brown, with a creamy head. Like the other beers, served through a tight sparkler, so robbed of much of the aroma. Malty and fruity, with a full mouthfeel, but quite dry. Not bad. Cask (handpump), Joiners Arms, Bishopston, Wales.
