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.
