Passable light bitter. Sweetish pale malts, fairly fresh hops. Mild? Did I get given the wrong beer?

Quack-Duck (9533) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2009
draught at the Corn Exchange, Crickhowell. Clear amber-golden colour with a small off-white head. Flowery hoppy nose. Rather full-bodied for the strength and so full of flavours. Intensive malty background with a touch of fruit, orange malmalade and lots of perfumy and floral hops in the lingering finish. Perhaps the best Welsh beer I had during my holiday.
