Wye Valley Butty Bach
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 couldn’t quite deliver.

Cask conditioned at Barrels in Hereford. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a thin, malty, sweetish beer, nothing off or bad just really quite bland and flavourless. Not great.

Cask conditioned at Barrels, Hereford. Amber with white head. This is quite a smooth beer, toffee, caramel, malty. There is a sweetness, along with a yeasty bready note. Not particularly hoppy in my view, perhaps some leafy notes. It’s okay.

Cask pint in the Crown Inn, Oakengates Shropshire on 17th July 2016. Golden bodied with a white head that lasted and gave some impressive lacing. Very dry finish to this fairly bland blend that had no real taste, flavour or oomph.

Wye Valley Butty Bach
Bottle from the Co-op, says it’s bottle conditioned but I couldn’t 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!

50cl bottle from Marks & Spencers, Camberley. A pale straw coloured pour with no head; musty citrus aroma; some life in the mouth with a lemony citrus taste and a grainy body; and a light grassy bitterness to finish. A rather uninspiring pale ale.
