Never heard of these folks… never seen the bottle. But man am I glad Brent brought this over the other night. This one made up for the Ayinger Ur-Weisse… <shudder>
Welsh ESB surprised me. I don’t think I have ever tasted a fruity ESB, but this one was most definitely there. While Brent tasted caramel, I could not stop tasting banana… it was nearly overpowering but stopped just short. Overall, the fruit and hops mixed really well to bring home one of the best ESBs I think I have ever had. I am going to bring some of this home again to see if I can recreate the experience.
Interesting website experience for these folks. The one linked above is the importer, Thames America. The brewery is actually The Felinfoel Brewery in the UK and has quite a history. If you get a chance, go to their website and check it out…
