Cwrw Cwm Gwaun - Light ale

Cwrw Cwm Gwaun Light ale
From South West Wales, Pembrokeshire to be precise, comes the Cwrw Cwm Gwaun brewery and it is only a year old having launched in the summer of 2009.

Cwrw Cwm Gwaun means Gwaun valley beer in welsh (not that i speak it, it says so on the bottle!!).
The farm its brewed on has its own sourced spring water, and the building has a large viewing and tasting area, visitors are encouraged! All the labels designs are hand painted, and they have frequent music evenings also! See the website for details.

On a previous visit to Tenby i purchased from the Morgan-Foley’s Deli on the high street their two other bottle conditioned ales - 'Bitter' and 'Dark'.
This time it was the Light ale, an amber colour with minimal head. After an initial floral aroma there is a pleasant light citrus taste, refreshing clean hop taste leading to a slight astringent twang. Overall a pleasant, and as it is called, light ale.

Cwrw Cwm Gwaun Bitter Ale

Cwrw Cwm Gwaun Dark Ale
 The two mentioned before, 'Bitter' and 'Dark', i think were nicer beers.
The 'Dark' is a mild style ale, nice and smooth, biscuity malt tones.
The 'Bitter' is a great beer, proper tingly bitterness, very good, probably my favorite of the three.

Buy direct from the brewery or from Real Beer Box.
