Was able to give this one a try last evening on tap over at Mahars. This brew was poured to copper yellow color with a nice white head that had fair retention and left a little lacing on the upper half off the glass. It has a nice aroma, heavy malt that is very biscuity, earthy and a little hop aroma. The taste of this brew is very nice, heavy malt flavors with a slight roasted flavor, slight pine hop flavor. The end of the taste is a little different as it reminds me of apple cider which grows on you. Over all this is a fantastic brew, great for a whole evening, as it is very mellow but very tasty.

3.88/5  rDev +16.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: copperish brown, good clarity, half crescent of white suds

Aroma: robust biscuity malt, angel food cake, cork, woody hops, a hint of sourness

Flavor: dryish malt backbone with an edge of dark malts and roast, surrounding acidity throughout, woody hop flavor, seemingly tannic bitterness, finishes dry with a tangy aftertaste of roast and yeast

Mouthfeel: medium full body, light carbonation, slight minerally/hoppy astringency

Other comments: This beer is at a crossroads of Scottish ale and a typical English Bitter: rich maltiness and an up front hop flavor/bitterness. Does that make it a "traditional Welsh ale"? I don't know, not sure if Welsh ale is fitting of its own style category.

Beautiful rich copper in color. Nice head settles to a solid 1/3" cap that sticks it out through the pint.

Nose is quite complex, with a very bisquity-malt base. Hops are there as piney, woodsy notes, and there is an appetizing hint of volatility/vinegar. Simply mouth-watering.

On the palate, its a very well-balanced symphony of malt and hop bitterness. There is a nice minerally component as well, which adds length, and helps balance the malt and support the hops. The volatile note adds to the complexity without being a distraction. Very fine and distinctive best bitter. Simply wish I could get it on cask (as always!).
