Tiny Rebel - Cwtch

Good Monday at work after a busy weekend down in Plymouth, lots of physical labour, but also put my noggin to use as well. My girlfriend also swung by the @beercraftbath taproom after work to see my face...she's a sucker for punishment.

Following from a Davin recommendation, this can was a bright and vibrant yellow with the famous teddy bear on the front and the beer name surrounded by psychedelic colours, really eye-catching.

Aboard the train it was a poor can opening again, but I was still rewarded with a smell that was really light and citrusy with airy hops coming through, very fresh. Then the taste...and I was really pleasantly surprised. For a red ale I was expecting too much of a malty or bitter side for my liking, but it was actually a very smooth and gentle taste. There's certainly a light bitterness and soft malty background to the drink, but the strong hoppy and fruity punch to it is really enjoyable.

Have to say this was a fantastic train tipple and I can see why it is such a classic, if you haven't had one already make sure you have a nice, cosy 'Cwtch' as soon as you can.

Hope you had a good Monday and catch you tomorrow.

Cheers!

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
