Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is bready, quite thin, some tangerine. A bit thin. Goes well with orange flavoured chocolate.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
