Butty Bach is Welsh for little friend. This full-bodied, smooth and satisfying premium ale is burnished gold in colour, and certainly has made a few friends in its time.
We brew it using Maris Otter and Crystal malts, flaked barley, malted wheat, and locally grown Fuggles, Goldings and Bramling Cross hops. With such fine ingredients, no wonder it remains a firm favourite among our followers.

On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours amber with a nice head. The nose has biscuits, toffee and some sweet maltiness in the background. The taste is much the same. The palate is generally light to medium in body with a smooth texture and a reasonably refreshing finish. Overall, a decent session ale but didnt go back for another.

Amazing beer that tastes of beer with a hint of beerishness...my glass had beer in it so I drank it and it was yummy...it didnt have any citrus notes or buttery flavours because it was a beer not a lemon meringue pie...there was a slight aroma of old dog but I think that was the old man sat across from me in the pub with a knackered looking Labrador.

Bottle. Pours pale amber, very soft aroma. Actually, everything is soft, the taste, the look, the smell, the mouthfeel. Its OK, but inoffensive. Traditional you might say. A bit boring I would say.

Appearance- golden and very clear, plenty of bubbles rising, a one-finger white foamy head. Aroma- caramel malt, hops, malty bread, stewed fruit hints. Taste- sweet malty caramel, crisp hops, fizzy mouthfeel, short finish.

Pure white frothy head stayed well on a translucent, effervescent, light golden body. No aroma. Medium bodied, smooth & slightly cloying ojn the back. Malt, faint hints of hops & tastes a bit soapy.

Slight yeasty smell from the bottle rather like home brew yeast. Thin head dispersed almost immediately. Distinctive fruity aroma with a hint of melon. Sweet, moderately hoppy flavour with a hint of honey and a pleasant aftertaste.Surprisingly full bodied. I would definitely drink this as a session ale but perhaps the aroma promised something the taste couldnt quite deliver.
