COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
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.

AshtonMcCobb (5893) - Edinburgh, - NOV 22, 2012
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.

Pours clear amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of bread, malt and mild citrus. Taste is smooth, mild nutty sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied, smooth, average carbonation.

IPATamer2 (1) - - DEC 3, 2016 does not count
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.

Cask at Edmunds Brewhouse. Crocheted lacing from a filmy white layer. Near clear golden body. Mild caramel nose. Mixed taste of buttery caramel and ripe citrus. Bittersweet endnotes. Decent Brit bitter (Shared with Finn, Birmingham 21.09.2016).

BeerViking (4389) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle from the Co-op, says its bottle conditioned but I couldnt see any true in there. Pours a bright golden-amber with a thin white foam, a little caramel and sweetcorn on the nose. Malty sweet at first, then with a dry, faintly dusty edge. Light bitterness and a hint of toasted caramel in the dry malty finish. A pleasant quaffing bitter, that probably would have been a golden mild back in the day!

Bottle at Sternbru, Rankweil. Aroma is malt, hint of caramel, soft fruity notes. Flavour is light bitter. Body is light, bit watery. Weak but refreshing.

Sickly yeasty aroma (on cask). In the bottle, was nice and malty, not too hoppy aroma. Generally sweet and a bit nutty. Lingering herbal hop aftertaste. Good.
