Tomos Watkin strives to be an iconic Welsh brand. They brew beer with the Welsh drinkers palette in mind, slightly sweet, clean finishing without going overboard on bitterness.

Another exercise proving that context is vital to enjoyment. Let’s be clear, this is a great session ale. But my first sip was shortly following a 2.5hr drive with the wife and kids from London to near Newport to spend a weekend with the in-laws in a lovely hotel. I was gasping and this went down like nectar from the gods. It’s a lovely lager gold colour, using a blend of golding, fuggle and cascade hops giving this beer a wonderfully refreshing zesty, citrus taste and a light summer beer aroma. Great balance of weight and flavour with a very enjoyable slightly sweet pale ale finish. 8.1/10
