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

Bottle 33cl, a cloudy amber brown beer with medium head and correct retention. Nose is intense on exotic fruits hops and toasted malt. Aroma is on exotic fruits, caramel, toasted malt, hop resin, touch of marzipan, light carared, biscuit. Bit too hopy on the fruit side for me.

My Bottom Line:
Grass and grapefruit, flowers and hemp, this New World-style Red Ale has tons to talk about laid out in its silky smooth malty setting.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam laces atop the misty brownish amber.
-Hops also develop earth.
-Malts evoke rye at times, and even caraway.
-Great drinkability and harmony in this one.
-You can scarcely imagine a more characterful and complex Red Ale.
-The fizz in the bottles makes the hops appear a tad brash compared to the naturally-carbonated cask version, which had plenty of room to lay everything out smoothly. Hurray for real ale!

Bottles (3.8) and on cask at Craft Beer Co., Brighton (4.2).

Ysok02 (838) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2016
Robe ambrée, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez puissant sur des notes de houblon frais, de pamplemousse, d’agrumes. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, amertume des agrumes, fine bulle et finale houblonnée. Une belle bière raffraîchissante.

weordie (752) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Pours a murky brown with a creamy head. Aroma is caramel notes and cinder toffee. A lot of roasted malt in taste, lots of cinder toffee and burnt wood. Lovely.
