COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Probably the countries favourite word, Cwtch is our Welsh Red Ale. The complex malt base compliments its big hop flavours.

Cask at Fire Island, Cardiff. Amber colored with white head. Caramel malty and a bit hoppy aroma. Nice spicy and fruity flavor with great hoppy finish. Medium body. Balanced. Nice one.

330 ml bottle. (K-Citymarket) Jyväskylä, Finland.
Amber colour, off-white head. Tropical fruit overload in the aroma... very nice indeed. Caramel and fruity sweetness, some maltiness and a touch of hoppy bite. The flavour is a great balance of tropical fruits, hoppy bitterness and sweet caramel malt. Very nice and super drinkable beer.

TET (2054) - FINLAND - JUN 18, 2015
A good looking beer. A reddish coppery colour, a head is big, dense and blond. Aroma has tropical mangos, some strawberries, wood and nice caramel, also hint of interesting chocolate. Taste has tropical fruits, citrusfruits, and some caramel malts. Enough of bitterness. Quite light bodied. Fresh and succesfully beer.

jmgreenuk (5710) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 14, 2015
Cask at the Pure Bar & Kitchen, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is peachy tropical fruit hop. The flavour is light bitter with a light spicy resin hop bitter palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Looks and smells great but it’s way too light and lacks any defining flavours.

domienS (222) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2015
Pours a clear amber beer with a fine beige head. Smells hoppy, floral, some citrus, some pine. Tastes bitter. Leaves a bitter and malty palate. Great refreshing beer! Good balance with the strong hops and malt flavor!

markextrae (2021) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2015
sample at LIBF, poured a clear amber looking colour with a slight off head, notes of sweet caramel, malts sweetness, orange, herbal hop bitterness, some parfum notes, ok, but like most of their other beers, it’s nothing ’out of the box’

Hamirubi (295) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2015
15cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015). This Welsh red ale (or just amber ale) is beautifully coloured. From copper with a reddish gloom to amber orange. The hoppy flavours are pleasantly unexpected, yet the flat taste is a big downer. This hopped Cwtch has a great appearance, the IPA-mouth is lovely, but this brew is not that hot as I expected. I only noticed some malts, some (grape)fruits merely on the background, some weak grain hints mixed with pump water. I would love to see this red ale having a sharpened taste and a fuller body.

Nice brew, though not the best one by Tiny Rebel IMHO. Pours clear reddish brown, hoppy, watery, nicely cleans your mouth at each sip.

Bottle at Leuven Innovation Beerfestival, thanks for sharing! Smells like an IPA, drinks like an IPA, whichc is a good thing. Nice.
