Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival ’15. Amber with white head. This proved to be a really simple malty bitter, reasonably dry, leafy, earthy hop note in the background. It’s okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
3rd beer in my ’home alone’ tasting evening on 14th Mar 2015. 500ml bottle poured into a UK pint sleeve, it looked lovely, a clear light amber body with a full and lasting white foamy head. Malty based nose with a splattering of hoppiness easing into the aroma: the taste similar. The malts do rule the flavours but only just, this is nicely balanced and easy to drink. Another winner from Wales!
